Hi ladies,

I am looking for some support, hopefully someone has some sucessfull stories too. I had my first u/s yesterday, the 17th of Aug. Doc told us we were 6w1d and i thought I was further along too. He found that my little bean's had a slow heart rate and that it also had an enlarged yolk sac measuring in at 6.18mm. Fetus (CRL) meaused at 5.01mm and gestational sac was 16.49mm. I am so anxious, they have told me to come back next friday the 24th.. I have had no pain or spotting. Can anyone tell me, can my baby survive this? I need answers so badly.

Cheers ladies.

I have no experience with this, hopefully someone will respond that does. But sorry you are going through this, after to so long, to think your long yearned for BFP is in jeopardy must be beyond stressful and scary. Try to keep hope, as you never know. Sometimes repeat u/s surprise us with a wonderful news. I am wishing that for you.

I'm so sorry you have to endure all this worry. It's so hard to finally get your BFP and then have to worry that it might not last. I too had an enlarged yolk sac on my first u/s. My OB said that an enlarged yolk sac can be a soft marker for miscarriage, but many pregnancies continue on to be healthy pregnancies. I'm almost 15 weeks, so the doc was right that an enlarged yolk sac may not always a bad sign. Baby did however have a heartbeat that was in the normal range. I really hope that you can get through this coming week without too much worry and that you get wonderful news on your repeat u/s.
