I am 6 weeks pregnant, no heart beat found on intravaginal ultrasound. Baby measures 7mm. HCG levels are good. Should I worry?

Follow up is needed. Normally, if an accurate measurement performed by a certified skilled sonographer is that the embryonic pole is greater than 5-6 mm but cardiac activity can not be detected, there is an increased probability of an "early pregnancy loss". HCG reflects trophoblastic/placental development but not embryonic or fetal condition. A repeat sonogram should help answer your question. Read more...

I am 6 weeks pregnant today is it a bad thing to not hear the babys heart beat just yet?

No. Typically cardiac activity comes on around 5-6 weeks. If you just went in for an ultrasound and the doctor saw a sac and a tiny embryo, then it's just a matter of time. Hopefully he or she told you to come back in a few weeks for a repeat ultrasound so you could hear the heart beat. Read more...

6 week ultra sound showed heart beat in one sac and yolk in the other. Is this normal for naturally conceived twins?

Not Really. Twin gestational sacs are more common than people think, but at 6 weeks you should be able to see normal embryos in both sacs if it's a normal twin pregnancy. You might have a viable (normal) single embryo & an empty sac (blighted ovum or anembryonic gestation). This will be followed & usually you end up with a normal single healthy baby. A f/u ultrasound should be repeated, good luck. Read more...
Septate uterus? Was there really a second sac, or was it the same sac wrapped around a uterine septum? It is not impossible to have dichorionic twins missed before 6 weeks, but one has to consider all possibilities. Another scenario: vanishing twin syndrome or large subchorionic hematoma. Serial ultrasounds by an expert diagnostician will be required to tell the final diagnosis. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily! Read more...
