Diagnosed with large yolk sac

Hey Ladies,

I'm from TTGP, but thought maybe some of you could help. 

I have a friend that is pregnant, but has just found out that the embryo has a large yolk sac >6mm. The baby has a HR, I am not sure if it is typical or not. She goes for a follow up appointment tomorrow to measure the yolk sac as well as the HR. I am doing as much data based research as I can, but was wondering if any of you had some anecdotal information or if you have been through the process of a successful or unsuccessful pregnancy with a large yolk sac. **TW Reason I am trying to find out as much info as I can for her, is because she will have to decide tomorrow if she wants to wait and possibly spontaneously abort or have a D/C. 

Thanks

Re: Diagnosed with large yolk sac

  • I don't understand if there isn't an issue currently why would she just D/C ? Wouldn't she want to give her pregnancy a chance? 
  • The issue is the large yolk sac. It has a high rate of chromosomal abnormalities and miscarriage rates. TW, she did end up miscarrying.
