7 Weeks Pregnant But Arguably A Small Fetal Sac, What’s The Solution?
Good morning, my name is Meilisa. I am currently 7 weeks pregnant. Yesterday I had a good size and fetal heartbeat. But the problem is the size of the fetal sac is inappropriate. Obgyn said that it should be 28 but still 22. Maybe because my parents had high blood pressure, it was feared that I would have thick blood. Obgyn told me to check blood to make sure. I want to ask if this condition is worrying and is there a solution from a doctor? Is the small factor of the fetal sac one of the causes due to blood viscosity?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
Pregnancy at 7 weeks, generally can be seen from the USG examination. Where when this can be heard fetal heart rate. In addition, the fetus is up to 10 mm in size with the head already visible. If from the results of ultrasound, the size of the fetus is still smaller than it should be, this can occur due to lack of nutrition in the mother or high blood pressure in the mother or anemia in the mother or pregnant women aged over 35 years. Aside from this, the ultrasound examination is highly operator dependent, meaning that the results are highly dependent on the expertise of the doctor who performs it. I suggest, mothers to do the best for pregnancy at this time. Enough balanced nutrition. Avoid eating fast food, raw or partially cooked and grilled food. Stay away from cigarettes, exposure to cigarette smoke, alcohol and illegal drugs. Routine control every month. If in subsequent controls the size of the fetus is still less than normal, you can continue to consult with a fetomaternal obstetrician.
Thus hopefully useful
