1st scan at 6+1 measuing 8mm with possible yolk sac. Scan 10days later found 2 sacs - 8mm empty and 13mm with haemorrage. Another scan in 1week. Help?
Hard to know: Early ultrasound in pregnancy can sometimes be inaccurate because a fetal pole needs to be big enough for the ultrasound technology to pick up. Typically we expect the gestational sac to grow between ultrasounds and the development of a fetal pole over time as well. No development of fetal pole could indicate very early pregnancy or blighted ovum ...Read more
No: Seeing a yolk sac only lets us know that at least the pregnancy is in the right location within the uterus and not in the fallopian tubes. To confirm that it is a good, viable pregnancy, you will need a follow-up scan in a week or two to show the fetal pole with a heartbeat. The fetal pole/fetus is not the same as the yolk sac. ...Read more
Yes, that's possible: Yes, the ultrasound may be correct, as many women do not ovulate at precisely day 14. You see big changes pretty rapidly in an embryo that young. Of course clinical correlation with your blood HCG levels, symptoms of pregnancy and timing of intercourse need to be considered. If you have no vaginal spotting or bleeding and if you have symptoms of pregnancy that's a good sign. Recheck in 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Yes: You'd better see a GS at all times because the baby is always inside the GS. the yolk sac will go away sometime between the 9th and 14th week. Good wishes. ...Read more
Yolk sac: This may not be normal if you are not off on your dating. It could represent a miscarriage. However, if you are off on dating, you can do another ultrasound and/or have your doctor perform a series of pregnancy tests at least every 48 hours apart. Either or both (preferably) can help give you an answer. Normally, the blood test numbers will go up by 50% in a 48 hr time period. ...Read more
Was told i was 7w5d, could see yolk sac but no embryo? Could it be a miscalculation or should I worry?
Hard to say: Without being there or seeing the scan. If you had a vaginal ultrasound it would be quite unusual to not see a fetal pole at 7+ weeks. With an abdominal ultrasound (thorough the belly) i'm not surprised at all: they arent terribly good for first trimester. Check with your OB and good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
