5 week ultrasound

Postby Duke27 » Tue Jul 14, 2015 8:14 am

Hi ladies,

So I got my betas and they were 16dpo 660 and 18dpo 1515 the doctors said they were pleased with those results.

I went in for another ultrasound today and they only saw a sac and dated me at 5 weeks which I think I am. The sac measures around 7mm I think and I'm hoping that that is right for this stage? Do any of you know? I also read that the sac is supposed to be round or it could indicate a problem, is this just a myth? So they only saw the gestational sac and yolk sac and want me to go back in 3 weeks... Ages to wait! He's the ultrasound pic let me know what you think and if it looks normal for this stage! :-)

At my 7 and 9 week ultrasounds (the first scheduled, the second emergency because I was spotting) the sac wasn't round either time. So yes, I would assume that's just a myth :) If it was seriously deflated/flat or something, I can understand if there might be concerns about not enough amniotic fluid, but it looks perfectly fine to me in that photo. 7mm seems right on target for where baby is :) If you want to keep track, a ticker like the one in my signature below from Baby Gaga is really helpful to show around where your baby should be each week.

Thank you this is reassuring :-) I'll have a look at those tickers to! I'm now worrying about the size of the sac! It's just endless worries! Got so long to wait until next scan hopefully we will see more then

Next time you'll be around 8 weeks and you will be able to see a heartbeat and "baby blob" :)
