What To Expect At 6 Weeks Pregnant Ultrasound
When 1st trimester ultrasounds date pregnancy how do they base the gestational age? Do they assume conception occured on cd14?
US: First trimester ultrasound is based on biometric measurements only, the embryonic crown-rump length, which is extremely reliable when done by a skilled sonographer. No assumptiosn need be made at all. The ega is however reported correctly, by convention, from the first day of a hypotehtical last menstrual period; so in that regard it 'assumes' conception on cd 14. ...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
With a normal pregnancy, all ultrasounds including ones in the 1st trimester showed LMP 10/15/12. Could conception have occurred after 11/7/12?
Pregnancy sono: If the ultrasounds were done in the first trimester and all confirm the 10/15/12 lmp, then there is little chance that conception occurred after 11/7/12. The first trimester ultrasound is usually sensitive to +/- 3 days. ...Read more
Is it normal to be 6 weeks pregnant but with no symptoms? Also when should I have my first ultra sound. Thanks :)
My wife got pregnant, in her ultra-sonogram report says she's 5 , 6 weeks pregnant, so is there a medicine that can help me or abortion is only option?
Medicine is availabl: Assuming that your wife agrees that termination of pregnancy is apprropriate, medicine can be used to end an early pregnancy without a surgical procedure. She would consult a provider and be given instructions on how to take pills and what to expect then. Birth control thereafter would seem best to avoid repitition. ...Read more

Is it normal not to be able to see the heart beat of your unborn baby when your 6 weeks pregnant, with a vaginal ultra sound?
Miscarriage...6 weeks pregnant since miscarriage begin my girlfriend has been bleeding for 33 day with sever pain my friend had a miscarriage around 6 weeks pregnant and when they did an ultra sound they saw nothing and her hCG count was not doubling ever
You : You are correct regarding the d&c. She likely has products of conception still present in the uterus which is causing her bleeding. The D&C (dilatation and curretage) will clean the uterus out and stop the bleeding. If her doctor has "blown it off" then she should seek a second opinion. I hope she is better soon. ...Read more
I am 6 weeks pregnant had an ultra sound yesterday..Baby's heart beat strong and docs says baby's fine...I have bleeding and endometriosis is this typic?
I'm about 6 weeks pregnant, went to ER yesterday because i had some bleeding, pinkish-red....Doc did a sonogram, sac was present but no fetal pole?
Maybe normal?: There are specific parameters to judge whether early pregnancy is abnormal. Based on measurements. Unfortunately, dates are not always reliable. I would not expect to see a fetal pole unless sac diameter is at least 16-20mm on transvaginal study (25mm abdominal scan). So if they said it was normal, believe it! ...Read more
