No Gestational Sac at 6.5 Weeks

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My wife is now just at 7.5 weeks pregnant. She had a trans vaginal ultrasound last Friday which would have been right at 6.5 weeks. We are absolutely sure that she got pregnant on Feb. 24 or 25th as I traveled a lot and we didn't see each other much other than then. I'm worried because when we went for her scan they didn't see anything at all.

Sex of Baby

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
I had a ultrasound and they said I'm having a girl but I'm carrying like I did with my son. With both my girls I carried real high this time real low. They said when they checked the sex of the baby there are two white streaks where they say the labia is. That there is no way it could be a boy. Is that true ? Do those white lines mean a girl?

Membrane Fusion

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hello, I would appreciate your advice, I had a 17 week ultrasound to have an amniocentesis done but the doctor couldn't do it as he said the "membranes had not fused yet" he did not explain anything.

Is this unusually late for them to fuse? i.e. I wondered if this could indicate a problem. I don't know how common this is. Thank you
