Hi, I am pregnant and as per my records, my LMP was on July 24th 2015. According to that, I’m 7 weeks pregnant. My transvaginal sonography shows four weeks and six days. My gestation sac measures 8mm. Doctor doubts its small and not growing. No yolk and embryo seen yet.

  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Lag in ultrasound can be either due to delayed conception if you have a history of prolonged menstrual cycles especially and other can be abnormal development of embryo or missed abortion. I would suggest you to wait for 1 week and repeat the ultrasound to check for growth unless you start bleeding and expel the fetus. Till then continue taking folic acid tablets.

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