It will be difficult to see if the mother has a retroverted uterus or fibroids.The GS is an echogenic ring surrounding an anechoic centre.
I ended up having to go through a month of blood testing to make sure my levels were dropping to signify a miscarriage or rise to indicate I was still pregnant over that course of time levels dropped and I finally went in for a d&c when I would have been 12 weeks. Best of luck to you and hope your story ends up being different than my own. The ultrasound person told my husband to wait outside :( and would call him in if there was something to see. I'm like ya there probably is cause she should see something. Thanks ladies for your replies, i appreciate you taking the time. I went back 3 weeks later and did have a baby growing. It's a hard situation though, and maybe could go either way. But in a normal pregnancy for me, I'm very very sick by 8w.
I go back Saturday for more bloods and Tuesday for a scan! Just hoping my dates are completely wrong and my pregnancy progresses. She didn't say anything positive or negative but when I asked if we could see (I wanted him in there cause I was worrying like crazy) she there wasn't anything to see. Im confused because everyone (sisters/bestfriend) says to be positive but i think my hubby is worried im too positive and god forbid the worst happens, i will b crushed. Stories ive read seem pretty 50/50 and this really cud go either way. I went in Monday he did a u/s my lmp 8&4 but the u/s said 6&2 and I am pretty sure of my dates other then ovulation . I felt he was in a rush, don't think it took more then 2 minutes,, he assured me that it looked fine was the right shape,, so now we wait!!
But based on my last period I should be 7 not 5.5 :( thoughts are with you chick XI was pregnant in March of his year and when I went in for my 8w scan, there was only a gestational sac and yolk sac. Those of u going through this too my thoughts are with u.
I was fairly sure of ovulation, but more sure of when I had my positive test, which was 4 weeks prior.
Mean Sac Diameter measurement is used to determine gestational age before a Crown Rump length can be clearly measured.
Im confused because i got my bfp on 31/10 (very faint but still a line) so even if i did ovulate late and im only 5/6 weeks, shouldnt i have seen something by now? My return appt isnt until 14th dec and i feel like im in no mans land.
Ive had no bleeding and theres no real reason to believe this pregnancy isnt progressing but im worried if im too positive i will find myself crushed at the next u/s.
I went for a u/s at a local free clinic when I went I was supposed to be 8 weeks but they said baby measured at 6 weeks with a very faint heartbeat. It seems like an unnecessary amount of time to stress you out. One mom definitely has a unique birth story: When Pittsburgh resident Raelin Scurry found herself going into labor at only 29 weeks, 4 days, she not only ended up delivering her baby boy herself in her...
I had an appointment with my actual midwife the following week so I just choked it up to it was a free clinic so their u/s machine must have not been "good". I'm 8 weeks and panicking what little symptoms I had are gone. I keep telling my lil bean, " you grow big and strong and pretty soon you'll be kicking and stretching "All the best H:)Sorry its taken so long to reply to this, its been a mad weekend. I will definitely keep in touch and please let me know how you get on. We went all the way to 9.5w before I opted for d&c and never a spot of blood or even brown. Isn’t it ironic how some of the most joyful moments of modern pregnancy — like catching a glimpse of your baby in an early pregnancy ultrasound — can inspire so much angst?
Failure to identify fetal cardiac activity in a fetus whose overall length is greater than 4 mm is an ominous sign.
Sometimes there is difficulty distinguishing between the maternal pulse and fetal heart beat.
