I had an irregular shaped gestational sac. At 8 weeks I had a scan which showed that the yolk sac measured 8 weeks but the fetal pole only measured 6 weeks but there was a heart beat. I had a repeat scan 2 weeks later sadly to find that the sac had collapsed and no heart beat. I have to go for a D and C tomorrow because my body as not rejected the pregnancy.Thus in my case a irregular shaped gestational sac was not a good sign. I also had a slightly irregular shaped gestational sac first noticed at a 6 week scan with a heartbeat of 118. I had bleading with this pregnancy as well that started as a light discharge and then became a steady period. I went to the E.R. at 8 weeks and the baby's heartbeat was strong at 150. The E.R. doctor said they could not tell where the bleading was coming from, but noted again that the ultrasound showed a slightly irregular shaped gestational sac and to follow up in 1 week. Two days later, I miscarried at home. After talking to several friends that are OBGYNs, any irregularity to the gestational sac will most likely lead to a miscarriage.
My understanding is that it depends on if there is a baby. Mostly if there is an irregular sac, it indicated that the baby is not developing within the sac - a condition known as blighted ovum. If this is so, then your pregnancy will definitely miscarry. BUT if you have an irregular sac, but the fetal pole and heartbeat are visible, there is a high chance the pregnancy will continue.
A single live fetal pole is referring to the baby in the stage when it is first visible inside the gestational sac. As for the intrauterine gestational sac, that is means the pregnancy is seen within the uterus and is not ectopic.
it disappears by the 81th gestational day
It usually appears after 4 weeks
about the size of a pea
Hi, Yes there can be. I am dealing with one now actually. I have a gestational sac in the uterus that is empty and no heartbeat. It can either be a blighten ovum or an eptopic
not with the naked eye.

No, you'll see only the yolk sac and the gestational sac which turns into the placenta.
I believe it means that they have only seen one sac--as in one embryo...not twins.
About 3 or 4 days after a missed period.
Around 5 weeks you can see the gestational sac.
