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
The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...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 not to be able to see the heart beat of your unborn baby when your 6 weeks pregnant, with a vaginal ultra sound?
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

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
