Brief Answer: normal report Detailed Answer: Hello The report you have uploaded appears to be normal . It's early pregnancy and cardiac activity of the fetus is yet to be seen . Normally cardiac activity is seen between 6-7weeks to. You can repeat the scan after 3 weeks for that each. You also have uploaded a small fibroid but it should not cause any problems with the pregnancy . Size is small . Other than that everything looks fine . Just repeat the scan after 3 weeks for confirming the cardiac activity.

Brief Answer: no impact now Detailed Answer: Your reports are normal . The cause for the miscarriage were none of the above . Now that you are pregnant , those tests are not valid jn this pregnancy and. By that i mean that they have no impact on this current pregnancy . You can continue all the medicines given by your doctor . They are all very important . Meanwhile just avoid any stress , heavy lifting , bending and intercourse for the first 12 weeks . Eat a high protein diet . Plenty of water .

Dear Doctor, Refer my earlier correspondence, we went for follow up ultrasound (TVS) on 04.02.2014. The report is as follows: 1) Single Intrauterine gestational sac is seen containing well defined yolk sac. 2) Gestational age by CRL(2.4 mm) is 5 weeks 6 days. 3) Gestational age by GSD(10.3 mm) is 5 weeks 5 days. 4) Gestational age by LMP(05.12.13) is 8 weeks 5 days. 5) Embryonic cardiac activity is absent. 6) Decidual reaction is normal in thickness and echogenicity 7) No subchroinic bleed is seen. 8) Internal os is closed 9) Cervical length is adequate. 10) Both ovaries are normal in size and echotexture. No associated adnexal mass is seen. Impression: Findings are suggestive of missed abortion. We find it difficult to reconcile with above report as the symptoms are there with no pain/bleeding etc. So we decide for other ultrasound scan(TVS) at different place. Findings are as follows: 1) Foetal Number & Viability : Single Intrauterine G.Sac 2) Foetal Node + 3) Foetal Head – 4) Cardiac Activity – Not visualised 5) Placenta – 6) Internal OS Closed 7) Internal Haemorrhage – 8) Yolk Sac- Normal 9) L Cyst- Not well visualised 10) MGA weeks 11) G Sac 16 mm ( 6 Weeks 0 days) 12) CRL 2.3 mm( 5 Weeks 5 days) 13) Any other : 15 mm intrauterine fibroid in anterior myometrium. Impression: 6 weeks intrauterine pregnancy without cardiac activity .Suggest follow up USG after one week for cardiac activity. We did both above scans on 04/02/2014. I want to add few more details: LMP -05/12/13 Urine Test in Hospital on 09/01/14- Indeterminate Beta HCG level on 09/01/14 – 123 Beta HCG level on 11/01/14-312(more than double in 48 hrs) Are these sign of delayed conception or something else? Kindly see.

Brief Answer: probably a missed abortion Detailed Answer: Well although the reports differ they both say the same thing . That the gestational age now is now is 5-6weeks . But by lmp your wife should be 8-9 weeks . According to your initial scan the gestational age was also 5weeks . You have repeated scans after 2 weeks . By now the gestational age should gave appeared more then before . But it seems that the fetus isn't growing so it's still at 5 weeks plus . According to lmp your wife should be 8 weeks and cardiac activity should have appeared by now . It's usually seen between 6-7weeks and. So i belive that missed abortion may be the correct diagnosis .

Dear Doctor, LMP-05/12/13 and pregnancy was established on 11/01/14 by doubling Beta HCG levels.Even on Urine Test it was indeterminate.How many weeks pregnancy should be at that time? I am having all pregnancy related symptoms and no abnormality in health. If fetus isn't growing since 2 weeks,i assume it should have been evacuated naturally till now. I am having positive feelings. Regards

Brief Answer: 8 weeks 1 day Detailed Answer: By lmp you should be 8 weeks and 1 day today . Your pregnancy may however progress with symptoms . By the end of the 1st trimester there should be symptoms like bleeding . The beta hcg levels are relative . Every lab has a reference value as to what the beta hcg should be at which week . Your lab should also have the same . R3peat the bets hcg at which48 hr intervals at least 4 readings .
