Ultrasound 28 Weeks Pregnant
6 weeks pregnant (conception date). transabdominal ultrasound doesn't show anything. possible etopic? no s/s of ectopic.
Different ultrasound: at 6 week gestation, your developing baby would be no larger than a pencil eraser and could easily be missed on a transabdominal ultrasound which depends on the skill of the of the ultrasonographer. Performing a transvaginal ultrasound would be another option. Waiting and repeating the transabdominal may be a good option as well, and your obstetrician should be able to help guide the choice. ...Read more
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
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. Best wishes and good luck with this pregnancy. ...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
6 weeks pregnant no fetal pole on gestational sac through vaginal ultrasound, had brownish spotting for 1 week! Please help thanks!
Still early: Although the possibility of a miscarriage is real, it is also not unusual to not see the fetal pole this early. You should have a much better idea of what is happening in another week or two. ...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?
Lmp 2/24/13. +serum pregnant 4/1/13.Spotting started 4/10/13 with hCG 215. Us showed no fetus, small sac. 4/12 hCG 310. Could this be a viable pregnancy?
Early pregnancy: The timing is right for a 5 week pregnancy but the HCG is much lower than may be normal. If you are not having any spotting, pain or bleeding, then repeating the ultrasound in 1 - 2 weeks will let you know definitively what is going on. Still, if any of the other symptoms occur, you should see your doctor. ...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?
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
9 weeks pregnant according to lmp...Been spotting..Went to ER for side pain internal ultrasound measured 6 weeks 4 days but no fetalpole! hCG @ 15000?
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
Not exactly: while an ultrasound in the third trimester can give you an idea based on size of the fetus, they are only accurate +/- 3 weeks. If the fetus is having growth restriction or is large for age, they will be off. If there is a fluid problem, they will be off. The best time in a pregnancy to obtain dating via ultrasound is the first trimester. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dating conception: Yes, most definitely. Best thing is to consult with OB and follow up with ultrasound. Ultrasound provides an estimate of fetal age. It is not an exact science. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Which gestational age is more accurate, LMP based or ultrasound one? By LMP i am 27weeks and 4 days.ultrasound says 28 weeks
8 weeks pregnant ultrasound showed 4 weeks.fetal pole n yolk sac not seen gestation sac seen is everything alright?its my first baby
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
