Does Irregular gestational sac mean miscarriage?

Postby carrotk » Wed Aug 10, 2016 9:33 am

Ended up in urgent care because of spotting and cramping on Sunday. Both have stopped since but I can't stop worrying about the ultrasound results at UC. I was 5 weeks 5 days but only measured at 5 weeks 2 days and the gestational sac was "irregularly" shaped. I didn't get any pictures but from what I could see it just looks somewhat oval-shaped rather than a perfect circle. There was a visible yolk sac and what looked like a faint heartbeat, but the tech and radiologist ultimately decided that the flicker must have been a vein (I can't remember the exact word she used) because she couldn't get it to register as a heartbeat.
I'm not worried about there being no HB since it was still so early, but between measuring a few days small (I'm very very confident of my ovulation date) and their regular sac, I'm wondering if I should be preparing for the worst. My OB follow up is tomorrow and I know I should just wait it out... but easier said than done!

Thanks for the response! In my follow-up with my OB he actually said he disagreed with the urgent care doctor and that the gestational sac looked fine. We just saw a heartbeat at 7 weeks!

I ate eggs and dry toast before going for my test and had no problem, my sister in law did the test on an empty stomach and felt super sick. Did you eat anything before?
