5 week ultrasound ?? Christine_Elizabeth Due August 12 (boy); 4 kids; 1 angel baby; St. Petersburg, FL, United States 7405 posts

Had an u/s this morning and the gestational sac was measuring 5w2d, about 10 days behind my LMP dates, which makes sense since I O about a week later than most women. Anyway, here's what we saw. Doc said the yolk sac was defined enough to measure yet, but he's going to do a repeat u/s in a week. Hoping to see a heartbeat by then. What did you ladies see at early 5 weeks? Anyone have an u/s they'd like to share?



This looks like a normal 5 week u/s right?

Yeah I see a little something inside the sac as well. What's a fetal pole??

OHHHHH I see what you mean. The side of the yolk sac is partially visible as a circle and then there is a thin thickening of the gest sac lining. That's the fetal pole?

LOL I know. I've just never been able to see it that early. You mean the tiny little area that looks like a slightly thickened part of the gest sac right? Just to the right of the yolk sac along the edge of the gest sac right?

Thank you. I hope we can see a heartbeat next week. DH is coming with me, so I really hope so.
