Is this normal pregnancy or miscarriage?
report details:
single intrauterine gestational sac seen measuring 2.2 cms,corresponding to 6+ weeks
no fetal

A little early: It sounds like your sonogram showed a very early pregnancy. Since no baby was seen there are two possibilities - too early to see or a miscarriage where the baby did not form. The sonogram will needed to be repeated in 1 -2 weeks to find out which is correct. ...Read more

Gestational sac has consistently measured 1-2 wk behind baby. Baby growing normally according to dates with a good hb. Worrying? Space to grow?

GS size: GS size correlates very poorly with dates, so I would not worry much so long as the baby CRL continues good growth. Obviously it's not possible to say more online; just keep up with your regular visits, and keep good communication with your doctor. ...Read more

Lab range for HCG values on report states gestational age 0.2-1 week expected range 50 -500, 1-2 weeks 100-5000, 3-4 weeks 500-10000. Is this fetus age not gestational (ieLMP dated) age given first 2 wks are leading up to ovulation ie no HCG produced?

Fetal or embryo age: Because there is is no fetus until 2 weeks into a pregnancy (yes, it's an odd but standard way of counting dates), there is no bHCG until after 2 weeks gestational age. Also, the bHCG is not detectable until implantation, because the bHCG needs to be able to get from the embryo into the uterine lining, into the mother's circulation, into the mother's blood or urine sample. ...Read more

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

39 weeks pregnant increased fetal movement sign of labor?

No: Increased Fetal Movement is not a common complaint. It is not a sign of labor. If you just ate a huge carbohydrate meal then maybe you have some increased movement. In pregnancy, I usually follow one rule. If you find something is not usual and normal for you go to Labor and Delivery and get the baby checked with a Non Stress Test. This is the only safe thing to do. ...Read more

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

10 weeks transvaginal ultrasound baby heartbeat is 183 what about gender of baby?

20 weeks for gender: Domea: the gender of the baby is usually seen at the time of your full anatomy scan which is 18-20 weeks. Sometimes it can be seen sooner or sometimes the baby's position and other factors keep us from seeing it even when you are at the right gestational age. The heart rate is not a good predictor of the baby's gender. ...Read more

Wait 21.9 (+/-2)wks: While there are many wives' tales about predicting baby's gender, all have their flaws. The only way to truly tell is once the little one is born. What a blessed surprise! ...Read more

Week on ultrasound picture is gestational age or fetal age.?

Week on ultrasound picture is gestational age or fetal age.?

Both: Fetal age is of course the exact age of your fetus as determined by measurements taken of the baby. Fetuses have different rates of growth or may have problems with growth, so sometimes the measurement age doesn't match the "expected" gestational age. The best "age" is determined by an early ultrasound between 6 and 12 weeks gestation. Accuracy of ultrasound decreases as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more

Single intruterine fundal gestational sac is seen with no detectable  fetal pole development at 7 weeks 4 days will the baby survive looks like 5weeks?

Less likely: So, the first assumption is that the dating is correct. If you are truly 7+4 weeks, there should be both a fetal pole and a heartbeat. But for various reasons you may be only 5-6 weeks so worth repeating ultrasound to make sure ...Read more

My ob scheduled me for weekly fetal monitoring. I am 31weeks pregnant & at risk of preeclampsia due to proteinurua. What does fetal monitoring consist of?

Observing the baby.: Typically this means that you will have an nst. This is when we put monitors on your belly to hear the baby's heart beat and also to follow for contractions. This is done for at least 20 minutes. We are watching the baby's heart beat to show us that your baby is "happy.". ...Read more

Granddaughter will be born  with spina bifida next week per csection.Has  approximately  one pound fluid on brain, unclear regarding fetal movement. Fe?

Worrisome issue: Timed delivery by c-section with a staff prepared for the babies needs is a good start.Expect transfer to the special care nursery for initial care, with a primary assessment on the degree of sb and any open back defect that will need urgent surgery to limit damage from infection. The neurosurgeons will also assess the hydrocephalus and make plans for care, but this is less urgent than the back. ...Read more

Discuss w/ OBGYN: After 12 wks, other measures are important to use too due to posiional issues, but talk w/ your Dr about it. That's a very big time error, but there will be clarification possible. If the issue matters greatly to your life and decisions, work closely w/ the Dr about your needs ASAP. ...Read more

9weeks pregnant ultrasound shows twins. One baby healthy with heartbeat. Other baby stopped growing at 7weeks. Is this dangerous for the healthy baby?

No: at this early stage these findings are not worrisome. The range of findings at 9 weeks are such that both babies may be ok. Assume the best and relax now. An ultrasound in a month or so from now will be reassuring. ...Read more
