Seeing the sac

Hi! I had my blood draw this morning after a positive digital read and went to the doctor this morning. No results until tomorrow. But the doctor wanted to do a vaginal ultrasound to see if he could see the "sac" although he thought it was early. What is this sac? He said he was able to see it which is good but to wait until next week and he can see it better. He also said he could not say 100% that it didn't mean it was my period (I'm on day 46 of my cycle and had a positive digital) but of course that freaked me out. Has anyone had similar experiences?

Re: Seeing the sac

  • At the beginning of your pregnany (before you can see a fetus on the u/s) you can see the sac and a fetal pole. Up until about the end of 5 weeks or the beginning of 6 weeks that's about all you can see. At about 6 weeks, you should be able to see a small fetus with a HB.

  • We just had our first u/s today. We saw the gestational sac and the yolk sac and fetal pole, as well as, the heartbeat. I'm not sure which sac he was talking about since we saw two. :)
  • The blood test results came back perfect and the doctor wanted to wait until 8/4 for our first real visit with a repeat blood count check today. Of course I spotted a little again today and told the doctor and now he is sending me for an ultrasound tomorrow morning and then a visit with him right after. Kinda freaking out again after I felt better with the positive blood test the other day... oy...
