The Fetus Has Not Been Seen In The Sac Of Pregnancy?
Morning .. My wife yesterday after the ultrasound in the amniotic sac was not visible to the fetus, is that normal? My wife was last mens on April 6.
Hello Deddy, thank you for asking.
The first day of last menstrual period or HPHT is often used as a benchmark for calculating gestational age. Despite the fact, pregnancy may only occur at least 2 weeks after HPHT. That is because until now there was no sure way to know when conception was certain. So the easiest way to use it is HPHT, if a pregnant woman has a regular menstrual cycle. The results of calculating the estimated gestational age using the HPHT method will be combined with the estimated gestational age via ultrasound. However, these results are only approximate, not absolute.
Based on your wife's HPHT, it is possible that your wife's gestational age ranges from 8-10 weeks. Indeed, on examination with ultrasound, sometimes at a very young gestational age, there is no visible fetus in the amniotic sac (amniotic sac). Your doctor may recommend that you get an ultrasound again about 2-4 weeks later. If after entering the teenage weeks of pregnancy but the fetus has not yet been seen, the doctor will begin to think of other possibilities such as blighted ovum (the embryo does not develop). Therefore, please routinely control the obstetrician so that the condition of the fetus can be monitored. In the meantime, make sure your nutritional intake is balanced and adequate rest.
Thus my explanation, hopefully it helps. Regards.
