Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :  
How can i help you?
User :   I am pregnant I went to my dr. the other day he did an ultrasound; he said that I am barely 4 weeks.He saw the yoke where the baby is forming, but he said that my gestational sac is kind of flat, and he canâ??t guarantee a healthy pregnancy. He ordered blood work the same day for my HCG level, and they were quit high they were 17,014 I go back today to get them checked again. My Dr. didnâ??t explain anything to me very well except for he canâ??t guarantee a healthy pregnancy, could you explain this all to me a little better on what you think?
Doctor :  
let me read
User :   okay thanks
Doctor :  
its to early to comment on what your asking.
Doctor :  
in four weeks
Doctor :  
in ultrasound you can only detect the gestational sac
Doctor :  
that is confirmation of pregnancy
User :   he said that at 4 weeks the sac should be more round then flat
Doctor :  
and from that it is not possible to tell the outcome of the baby
User :   but I thought that yoke didn't form for the baby until 5 weeks ?
User :   and he is saying i am only 4 ?
Doctor :   that is what until it is 6 weeks ultrasound i shall not comment

User :   what about my hcg levels
User :   are they correct for 4 weeks
Doctor :   that will remain high
Doctor :  
it is normal
Doctor :  
that is the sign of pregnancy
User :   well someone told me i could be having twins with my levels that high ? is that posssible
Doctor :   i shall not comment on what people talk. as such you have to wait for other 4 weeks to confirm from ultrasound you have twins or not
