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.

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

User Avatar

it disappears by the 81th gestational day

It usually appears after 4 weeks

You will likely see the gestational sac and maybe the yolk sac.

What is a Blighted Ovum (Empty Gestational Sac)? A blighted ovum (empty gestational sac) occurs when a fertilized egg implants into the uterine wall, however, the fetus does not continue to develop past the sixth to eighth week of gestation. There is continued development of the placenta and amniotic sac which produces hCG (giving the positive pregnancy test). Most women either do not know they are pregnant or find out within the first trimester that they have a blighted ovum (empty gestational sac).

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.

At three weeks you have likely just implanted (assuming ovulation and conception at two weeks) and there would be no sac visible. According to some websites, it can be seen as early as 4 weeks. Personally speaking, I had an early ultrasound at 4 weeks and no sac was visible. A gestational sac and yolk sac were visible at 5.5 weeks.

About 3 or 4 days after a missed period.

Around 5 weeks you can see the gestational sac.

How many MM should a Gestational Sac be at 5 weeks and 3 days

User Avatar

That sounds perfectly normal. The gestational sac is all that is able to be picked up at this stage. The baby grows within it. By the fifth week, the location of the baby becomes obvious as does the fetal heart.

Im 5 weeks and 2 days. The gestational sac is measuring 1.11cm I also have no yolk yet. Everything Im reading up on is saying there should be a yolk BEFORE the gestational sac measures 16mm in order for it to be considered a viable pregnancy. 10mm = 1 cm so Im like 12 mm now or so. It says on average the yolk appears when the gestational sac is between 8mm- 10mm. Ask your doctor what the sac is measuring. Maybe we are just really early. I did see a post where a girl said she had only a gestational sac 2 weeks ago. She was measuring 4 weeks 5 days. They rescanned her 2 weeks later, she had a fetal pole and heartbeat and it measuring 8 weeks and 2 days. So I suppose theres hope. Im trying not to get too discouraged yet. Good luck and you can email me at amys_drop_box@yahoo.com if you would like. Id love to hear how everything turns out.

Wait until 25mm to be sure, but most likely yes because a yolk sac should be seen at 13mm.

The scrotum protects the oval-shaped testicle.

It is common not to see the fetal pole until 6 weeks. At 5 weeks you most likely see only a gestational sac and yolk sac.

User Avatar

Approximately at four weeks and three days after the last period. The gestational sac will be the first to be visible.

User Avatar

not necessarily, it just means that you are early and the gestational sac is the bag of waters the baby grows inside of. Never heard of that leading to miscarriage. As you get bigger, the bag will expand too. Hope this helped!!

The difference between club fungi and sac fungi is that sac fungi's spores are produced in sacs called asci. However, club fungi's spores are produced in a club-shaped structure called a basidium. -Last owner By Giudice27: The difference between sac and club fungi is that sac fungi is shaped as balls and has a color.

You can usually see the gestational sac at 5 and a half weeks.
