I had my 1st u/s done Monday. We saw the hb and the baby was moving, so that’s good. We saw tiny hands and feet forming. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I finally get a call back today about the results and the nurse says there was a small subcoreonic bleed (sp?) but that is was nothing to worry about. She said the baby was measuring 9.1 weeks which is exactly what I had calculated. She also said the sac was measuring at 10.1 weeks but that this could be just a normal variation. I asked about the placenta and if they had ruled out another molar pregnancy for sure, since I had a hb and a fetus at this point with the mp. She said the dr would call be back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> So, the dr calls me back during the 2 minutes I’m away from my desk. He leaves a voice mail saying they hadn’t commented on the placenta specifically but that they did not say it was abnormal in appearance. I thought that’s why we were having it done. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> So I still have a few questions for him. In the mean time does anyone know what a subcoreonic bleed is? What about the baby and the sac measuring differently? Has anyone here experienced this before?

Glad you got to see baby. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
A subchroionic bleed is when a "pocket" of blood is seen in the ultrasound (shows as a black area). Usually, this blood is passed at some point in the pregnancy. That's my layperson's explanation based on some reading I have done in the past.<br><a href="http://experts.about.com/q/1007/3667787.htm" target="_blank">http://experts.about.com/q/1007/3667787.htm</a><br><a href="http://forums.obgyn.net/pregnancy-birth/P-B.9908/0285.html" target="_blank">http://forums.obgyn.net/pregnancy-bi...9908/0285.html</a><br><br>
I don't know anything about the baby and the sac measuring differently. It is probably just a normal variation, as the nurse said. Docs love to point out what is average and how one or one's baby deviates from that.<br><br>
It sounds to me like everything is going well. Strange how they didn't look at the placenta, though. Oops. I'm sure it's probably fine.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Finally got to talk to the dr after a bit of phone tag. He took a look at the u/s pictures and said the placenta looked very normal. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> He said the subchorionic bleed probably formed during implantation and increased the chances of miscarriage slightly but that at this point my chances were already very low. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> He said he wouldn't reccomend doing anything differently due to it. He also said the 10.1 week measurement for the sac was probably just error and that the sac measurements often can be inconsistent.
