Gestational sac larger than embryo?

i had my first u/s today and my gs measured 7w3d while the fetal pole measured 6w3d.  anyone have this happen? the tech said not to worry about it, but i'm not a very good listener.  

Re: Gestational sac larger than embryo?

  • Hmm. I've actually never heard of that.

    I would think it's good that there IS a fetal pole though right?

    Try not to stress. I know that's easier said than done. Are they doing another u/s in a week or two?

  • i hope so?  i went to an independent u/s place, not my dr.'s office as they won't do one for another couple of weeks i think.

     the tech didn't worry about it at all and said sometimes that happens and they will just go by the crl.  still kinda strange though. 

  • OMG look who it is! I missed the intro.

    I'm not sure about your question but did they want to bring you back for another u.s?

    congrats to you!!

  • Wow I just had an ultrasound and my gest sac measured 7w3d and the fetal pole was 6w6d ! We saw and heard the heartbeat at 136 and the tech didn't seem concerned. I am waiting for a call back but the nurse assured me that if they though anything looked off they would call.  I am not sure what to think either but I was super excited to hear a healthy heartbeat :)  Let me know of any updates and I will do the same!
