What does a 7 week fetus look like can you describe?

Google it: Why don't you go to www.Google.Com and type in 7 week fetus and then look under images. That will get you a lot farther than any description i can provide. On ultrasound at 7 weeks it looks like a shadowy grey tube with 4 little arm buds, a yolk sac and maybe one can see an amniotic sac as well. ...Read more

In early pregnancy, is the fetal pole the same thing as an embryo? When should u see an embryo? What does it look like?

Early ultrasound : By about 6 weeks a fetal pole, also known as an early embryo, is visible with a heart beat on vaginal ultrasound. It looks like a grain of rice or a jelly bean at first--a white/grey blob with a flicker! ...Read more

Anatomy survey: Is typically performed between 18 and 22 weeks gestational age. At that time, the fetal anatomy has developed well enough to detect most anomalies. The arms, legs, hands and feet are typically part of a routine anatomy survey, so abnormalities should be identified at that time. ...Read more

Not Really: The organs of your future baby are formed in the first 14 weeks of gestation. If you have a tooth infection, you can take pen vk for a week, but more importantly, you should have the offending tooth treated so that you don't have any undue stress on your unborn baby. Make sure you talk to your ob-gyn and have your dentist and ob-gyn be in communication. If u need one, see a dental specialist. ...Read more

Can a 9 week fetus look 7 weeks?

Maybe but not likely: You have to understand that the usual way to date is weeks from the menstrual period, which is presumed( but not always )2 weeks from conception. But, if a good ultrasound is done and the first third of pregnancy, it should be accurate to within 5 days, not 2 weeks off! if within 5 days, they way still go by the menstrual period or probable date of conception... Talk to your ob! hope this helps. ...Read more

Do all fetus look the same at 7 weeks?

Board Certified, Obstetrics and Gynecology

Yes :-): That's a great, and interesting question. Having performed hundred of ultrasounds at this gestational age, I have to say, they pretty much all look alike. Unfortunately the magnification abilities of most ultrasounds are limited, so even if they looked different i wouldn't necessarily be able to detect. Interesting question though! ...Read more
