What Are The Complications Associated With Amniotic Sac Disorders
Varied: The "bag of water" is actually 2 membranes: the amnion (inner sac) and chorion (outer sac). If the amnion breaks before delivery (but the chorion does not), the baby can become tangled in the fragments of the membrane and have structural defects, such as missing fingers or limbs, cleft lip, and constriction bands on limbs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
More specific: You need to be more specific about your question. If you have the exact wording from an ultrasound report, it would be helpful in giving an opinion. ...Read more
Need more info: If you are asking about too little amniotic fluid, avoid becoming a diabetic or hypertensive which can decrease fluid. If you are asking about too much fluid, avoid diabetes of pregnancy which can sometimes cause this. If you are asking about amniotic bands, etc then there really is nothing you can do to prevent them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Rare in single, twin: Sometimes there is a condition that develops in which there is a so-called "stuck" twin. That is a high-risk condition that requires immediate referral to a perinatologist or maternal-fetal medicine specialist for evaluation and ultrasound. While there, ask for an appointment with a neonatologist when the time is right. By then there will be many questions and outcome of two babies to consider. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had my first u/s 7 weeks 4 days with a 144 hb. I'm concerned because the amniotic sac looked 4-5 times larger than the fetus. Is this normal?
Amniotic sac: The amniotic sac (also bag of waters) is the sac in which the fetus develops in amniotes. It is a tough but thin transparent pair of membranes, which hold a developing embryo (and later fetus) until shortly before birth. The inner membrane, the amnion, contains the amniotic fluid and the fetus. The outer membrane, the chorion, contains the amnion and is part of the placenta. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If the amniotic sac didn't break then would amniotic flyid embolisim be impossible? Can babies be delivered without amniotic sac broke?
See answer : An empty amniotic sac usually indicative of a non-viable pregnancy or what is known as a "blighted ovum" which occurs when a fertilized egg implants into the uterine wall, but the fetus does not continue to develop past the sixth to eighth week of gestation. There is continued development of the placenta and amniotic sac which produces HCG (giving the positive pregnancy test). ...Read more

Radiology: A radiologist would have to view and review your US to determine exactly what you have. See if you can get the report and it should say in the written report was is seen in the Uterus. Best wishes. ...Read more
I fell pregnant but there were no baby only the amniotic sac , does that mean it will happen again if i try to get pregnant again?
Had ultrasound, baby reading 8wks with a VERY large sac. Dr laughed n said we have a swimmer. Is a large amniotic sac a cause of concern?
Sac meaning unclear: If the sonographic measurements of your 8 week embryo, its cardiac activity and the yolk sac were all normal, there may be very little cause for alarm . At this early point in your pregnancy, measuring the size of the gestational sac may be quite imprecise and the meaning of a "very large sac" is rather unclear and is probably insignificant. ...Read more
I am 6 wk p based on ov date, scan had shown crl 4.6mm, amniotic sac 24.4mm & gestation sac at 42.4mm (11wk p). Is enlarged gs a sign of non viable p?
No: A crl of 4.6mm is approximately 6 weeks. If there is a normal fetal heartbeat, i wouldn't be concerned about the discrepancy in gestational sac size. Sometimes gestational sacs are elliptical in shape and will give a false size unless it is measured in 3 planes and a mean sac diameter is used. Also large gestational sacs are not associated with non-viability with a normal heartbeat. ...Read more
Triage said my amniotic sac didn't tear but still watery fluid coming out when I push smells like cemen and also clear like water! Could they be wrong?
It's possible: It can be ambiguous as other things can mimic leakage of amniotic fluid like urine or normal discharge. Sometimes a small hole in the sack can be intermittently plugged by the babies head like a cork. This could cause ongoing leakage. You should call your prenatal care provider's office in the morning so that this can be rechecked. Call sooner if you're experiencing fever or any vaginal bleeding. ...Read more
I was pregnant but when i had my scan the doctor saw the amniotic sac but no baby inside, what happened?
Blighted Ovum: Sometimes a pregnancy forms with just the placental tissue and no embryo (which normally grows into a fetus). The placental tissue secretes HCG and will cause a positive pregnancy test. But no fetus was present. Other times, the embryo may have failed so early that it could not be seen and only an empty sac is visible. Early embryonic failure is very common. Hope things work out in the future. ...Read more
