Hello Doctor, I am 5 weeks pregnant. Today I been to the hospital for ultrasound but that doctor said that he is not able to see my baby in ultrasound. So he said that come after 2 weeks we will again do ultrasound. I am very afraid because this is my first baby. Please tell me all will be ok?

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Gestational sac usually grows at a rate of 1mm per day after 4 weeks of gestation. At 6 weeks yolk sac should be seen and many a times fetal pole with cardiac activity can also be seen. If this is not there and sac is irregular or you have a history of bleeding, it can be abnormal. Wait for a week to repeat the ultrasound and to confirm as sometimes it's normal in case of wrong dates or delayed conception.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
