Transabdominal Ultrasound 8 Weeks
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

Transvaginal ultrasound on 9/19/13 dated pregnancy at 8w3d. 4/28/14 due date. Next ultrasound 12/13/13 dated 20w4d. Possible dates of conception?
Kinda: Pregnancies are usually dated based on the first day of the last menstrual period (gestational age). Everyone uses that assumption even though you usually get pregnant about two weeks later. You are correct in that fetal age is two weeks less than gestational age. Usually, only embryologists who study fetal development use fetal age. ...Read more

Most likely, YES: Ultrasound is superior to your period in dating early pregnancy. A gestational sac is the first sonographic sign of pregnancy and appears about 4 1/2 weeks. Next is the yolk sac at about 5 weeks. The fetal pole with a heart beat at about 5 1/2 to 6 weeks. So, yes, it appears your pregnancy is progressing normally. ...Read more
Lmp: 6 weeks 5 days. Ultrasound shows 5 weeks 5 days. Bleeding x 4 days. Ultrasound shows heartbeat @ 87, (+) fetal pole. Miscarriage?
Threatened AB: Any bleeding or cramping in your first trimester can be from a threatened miscarriage (or abortion, ab). The bleeding is always a worrisome sign and a fetal heart rate < 100 BPM is also worrisome. Follow your doc's instructions & remember that if you do miscarry, it is rarely from something you did and most are inevitable. Take care & best of luck. ...Read more
Had a neg hcg. week later showed positive, 8 positive pregnancy tests according to LMP should be 6 week transvaginal ultrasound didn't show gest sac?
Not unusual: That is not that unusual. Often the sac won't be visualized until 8 weeks. As long as your BHCG levels are rising and they do not see any evidence of a tubal pregnancy, try to relax and be patient. Most OB's won't even have you come in untold 10 weeks because that is about the time the heart beat will be noticeable. ...Read more

Prenatal?: If you're asking about a prenatal ultrasound, no not necessarily. If anything, a 10 week ultrasound may give you more detail you may not be able to see in the 6 week ultrasound. However, the 6 week ultrasound is necessary to check on the general wellbeing of that tiny fetus and make sure it is viable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Much more than: Later in gestation. First trimester ultrasound is most accurate at estimating gestational age within 5-7 days (depends on the center). It trails off after that. General rule: 2nd trimester scans for dating are +/- 14 days and 3rd trimester is the least accurate (+/-21 days). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Give indication: Xr, and anything without direct visualization give an indication as to what is suspected. The symptoms, the exam and the history makes a doctor arrive at a diagnosis as the most likely thing. If in doubt, then direct visualization needed. I hope that gives you reassurance. ...Read more
