Miscarriage or Twins?

QUESTION

Hi,
According to my last menses I am supposed to be 6 weeks but when I went see my doctor the scan didn't show a heartbeat. All we saw was a large cyst and two dots.

My doctor said that the dates could be wrong as I was on clomid and it could have delayed ovulation. I might be only 4 weeks pregnant but he couldnt confirm anything because he said the dots were too small.

Twins are Different Sizes

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I found out via ultrasound on October 28th that I am pregnant with identical twins (in the same sack). On 10/28, the larger twin (twin A) was measuring 5 weeks 6 days with a faint heartbeat. Twin B was smaller (I don't know how much smaller), and no heartbeat was detectable. 5 days later, on November 2, I had a follow-up ultrasound b/c of bleeding. Twin A is now measuring 7 weeks 4 days, and twin B is measuring between 5 weeks 6 days and 6 weeks 1 day. No heartbeat for twin B yet.

Early Pregnancy Ultrasound Causing Confusion

QUESTION

Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
My boyfriend and I have been through hell the past few days. This past Thursday, we went in for our first ultrasound and the doctor said there was one gestational sac, but couldn't find the heartbeat. She said the I was either earlier that I thought, or I could be miscarrying. (I have very irregular periods, so she said I might have ovulated later, or something like that) So she set up another appointment for an ultrasound for four days later (today - Monday), and told me if I started to bleed to go to the E.R.

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
