The Fetus Develops Late At 6 Weeks Of Gestation?
Hello, I’m Tika. I want to ask. R nI have HPHT March 1, 2018, April 21 I checked with the obgyn doctor, and checked for transvaginal ultrasound, and found 6W2D gestational age, and checked my progesterone lab at 9.5, 2 weeks 2 days after before checking I came back to see the condition of my uterus, and the doctor said that our development was stagnant at 6W3D, no progress, and possibly chromosomal abnormalities, and in a week I was asked to come again to see the progress, if there are no signs that will be taken medical action, for a curettage, I want to ask if there is still hope for my developing fetus, and what should I do, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A pregnancy that does not develop at a very young gestational age is usually the term doctors use to describe a blighted ovum (empty pregnancy, anembryonic gestation). Normally, when the gestational age is 8 weeks or more, the fetus will appear filling the gestational sac. However, in the blighted ovum, what appears is an empty gestational sac. The exact cause of this condition is often not known with certainty. However, the most common is related to chromosomal abnormalities in the fertilized egg.
In addition to chromosomal abnormalities, blighted ovum can also be triggered by other factors, including:
History of maternal illness, such as heart, kidney, lung disorders, blood clotting disorders, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, uncontrolled hypertension, placental abnormality (placenta) smoking excessive alcohol consumption drug abuse distance between pregnancies that are too close or too far away, malnutrition, and so on. Without reducing your expectations, if it is true that the fetus in your womb is not developing, it is true that curettage surgery is needed. This operation is performed to clean the tissue in your uterus so that it is ready to carry a new fetus. However, determining the best treatment should be discussed directly with the obstetrician who treats you. If the doctor recommends a repeat examination 1 week later, then there may still be hope to monitor your fetal development, whether it can be maintained or not. Although indeed, epidemiologically, the chances of being able to sustain a pregnancy like yours are very slim.
In the meantime, you should first calm your mind. Get rid of negative thoughts, and rest assured that everything God has planned is the best for you. Keep living a healthy lifestyle, starting from taking regular breaks, eating healthy and nutritious foods, drinking enough, staying away from cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs. Finally, limit sexual intercourse before it is declared safe by your doctor.
Hope it helps ..
