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

Sonogram (Definition)

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

5 week 5 day transvaginal ultrasound saw only yolk sac. Normal?

Could be normal!!!: At 5 weeks 5 days, you don't always see a fetal pole. There is some leeway here. You need to correlate with your beta-hcg. Reference this site for laypersons: http://ob-ultrasound.Net/. ...Read more

Can transvaginal ultrasound detect 4 weeks gestation?

Can transvaginal ultrasound detect 4 weeks gestation?

Perhaps: Kyl: at that early stage we may see a decidual (pregnancy) reaction in the uterus and a small gestational sac. We would not be able to see the actual fetal pole or heartbeat that early. A scan at 7-8 weeks would be best to document a good, viable pregnancy with a heartbeat. ...Read more

Done 3 urine tests. positive. about 4 weeks pregnant. Vaginal ultrasound scan shows embryo but with no yolk sac. Endo thickness: 19.3mm. Worried?

Give it time: Our technology to detect pregnancies is amazing but sometimes we see structures well before they get formed. Give it time for the sac to form structures; you can repeat the US in 1-2 weeks to assess growth. This can be correlated with hormone level checks as well to ensure appropriate rise Best Wishes Dr M ...Read more

Would a transabdominal-pelvic ultrasound detect an ectopic pregnancy at 9 weeks?

Would a transabdominal-pelvic ultrasound detect an ectopic pregnancy at 9 weeks?

Maybe: The accuracy of a transabdominal pelvic ultrasound will depend on several factors: the level of the blood betaHCG tests, (not the LMP or estimated weeks of pregnancy) the skills and experience of the sonographer, (Certified Registered Technician) the quality and resolution power of the ultrasound machine, its number of MegaHertz, the location of the ectopic pregnancy (tubal,ovarian, cervical..) ...Read more

Lmp 5/1, positive hpt 3/2, bhcg 2063 7/2. Dating scan yesterday revealed yolk sac only, no heartbeat dated at 6 weeks only  ? Missed miscarriage?

Another BHCG: The best way to know what is going on with the pregnancy it to have another bhcg level drawn. The number should double every 48 hours. If it is staying the same or declining the pregnancy is probably not going to continue. If it is on the rise then perhaps the ultrsound was just too early to detect the gestational sac and heartbeat. ...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

Not pregnant: Given the information you provided, you are not pregnant, therefore ultrasound is not showing any sign of pregnancy. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

By LMP I am 7 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days showed irregular sac, no heartbeat or yolk etc. No flow around sac. Hcg rising. Miscarriage?

By LMP I am 7 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound at 6 weeks 3 days showed irregular sac, no heartbeat or yolk etc. No flow around sac. Hcg rising. Miscarriage?

Early pregnancy: It's too soon to be sure what is going on. Often a woman will ovulate later and the lmp will not be accurate. The best option is to repeat the beta-hcg every 48 hours until 3 results are performed and a repeat ultrasound 1 week after the previous was done. That will usually solve the question. ...Read more

8 weeks pregnant & on prometrium (micronized progesterone) due to vaginal bleeding at 4 weeks. Heartbeat at 6 weeks, another ultrasound scheduled next week. Miscarriage risk?

Slightly above norm: Bleeding during pregnancy does put you at slightly increased risk. Know, however, that 25% of women experience 1st trimester bleeding and the majority of those go on to have successful term pregnancies. Only time will tell.

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

6wks pregnant, no gestational sac in tubes or uterus based off 2 u/s. 5 weeks hCG level at 1100, at 6wks 1900. Possible i ovulated later & see sac soon?

It's possible. . .: Usually we see a gestational sac in the uterus by the time your HCG level is 1200, but it's harder to see in the tubes. The HCG level also usually doubles every 2-3 days, and yours only went up a little over the course of a week. So those are both concerning signs. Even if your timing is off, the numbers are odd. Did anyone check a Progesterone level? That can help us with a diagnosis sometimes. ...Read more

Too early: It is unusual to see a pregnancy on ultrasound until about 5 weeks, which when you are a week late. If you ovulated late, it could show up any later. If your or your doctor is concerned about an ectopic pregnancy it should be repeated. ...Read more

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
