Amniotic Bands

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,

I had my first scheduled ultrasound today at 16 wks. Everything else checked out fine...but I was told by the radiologist that I never formed an amniotic sac. I have amniotic bands instead. He told me it was something that needs to be monitored because as the baby grows, the bands can stretch and snap or the baby's limbs can become entangled.

just pregnant

hi, i have had 2 miscarries in the last 3 years. i have endometroitis. I did a test yesterday and am pregnant about 5 weeks. I went to the doctor today a new one and she is checking for every thing. I am scared that i will miscarry again, but it feels different this time. the other 2 times i never got sick. i feel sick all the time lately. I hope every thing is good and our baby is healthy.

Irregular Yolk Sac

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I went for my first ultrasound yesterday and I am about 7 weeks pregnant.

When I asked if everything looked ok the lab tech said yes but it is too early to really say. She showed me the heartbeat and sent the results to the doctor. I went home worry free.

Today I got a call from my doctor saying that I had an irregular yolk sac. She said something about it being thicker than normal. I asked her if I should be worried, and she told me to have another ultrasound.

Is there any more information you can give me about this?

Thanks

Dreams of Smoking

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I am seven weeks pregnant. I saw that you are a dream expert. Can you help me with a re-occurring dream I am troubled by? It happens now, and before my pregnancy, for years it has been a dream once or twice a week.

It's of me, chain smoking. I am not a smoker, never have been, and now that I'm pregnant I can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke.

So why do I dream of chain smoking? In my dreams I get an almost sexual pleasure from chain smoking.

Any dream interpretations would be cool and helpful!

Thanks

Gender?

Hello, we got this ultrasound shot yesterday at 16w6d. Can you determine gender from this shot? The cord is between the legs. We couldn't get a shot from underneath. I'm okay with either gender and have one of each, but I would just like to know if my intuition is right. Does this ultrasound picture give you a good enough shot to guess? Thanks!
