HELLO

IN AN ULTRASOUND A REGULAR GESTATIONAL SAC A WITH A FETAL POLE WITH CARDIAC ACTIVITY AND YOLK SAC ARE NORMALLY VISUALISED ONLY AFTER THE 7TH WEEK.

ANY PRIOR ULTRASOUND MAY MISS ONE OR THE OTHER ABOVE SAID FINDINGS WHICH MAKES THE ULTRASOUND REPORT INCONCLUSUVE.

SO HOPE FOR THE BEST AND GO FOR A SCAN IN THE 8TH WEEK.
ALL THE BEST.
