Hi, i just had an ultrasound and they measured 6 weeks but no heart beat and enlarged yolk sac. The tech said I just wait for doc's call and see whats next? Does that mean something is abnormal? Help

How far along do you think you are?

If there was no heartbeat, maybe it is a bit too early to see it?

Acccording to LMP, I should be 9 weeks but the doc said I might have ovulated late so did an ultrasound and it measured 9 weeks

6 weeks spot on is a bit too early.

I had a us at 6+6 very similar and they made me come back in two weeks just to make sure.

Mine didn't end well but I did a ton of research so i remember reading 6 weeks is a bit too early.

There can be variablity with ovulation, conception and implantation. 

At 6 weeks its about 3mm and i think grows 1mm a day, if you were off by 3 days it might only be 1mm.

There are many stories on the internet of things going both ways.

it is way too early to give up hope.


8 might be enough

The heart does start to beat right around 6 weeks, so it could very well be that it was just a couple of days too soon.

As for 9 weeks by LMP, but 6 weeks by u/s measurements, you absolutely could have had delayed ovulation due to stress, travel (if I fly during AF, my ovulation will be delayed by two weeks), illness, etc. And some people don't have 28-30 day cycles to begin with, and ovulation is usually around 14 days before AF, so that can make a big difference in pregnancy dating as well.

As for what your u/s means, unfortunately there's no way to tell from just this one scan, or even from a scan plus quantitative HCG test. The only way to know if the pregnancy is progressing normally is to go in for a repeat u/s a week or so from the first scan to see if the expected growth has taken place. Please don't let a doctor convince you of anything without a repeat u/s!

Sending you positive thoughts for a healthy, sticky bean.
