Patient is 52 days pregnant. The fetal heart rate is 122 and there is a perisac bleeding seen in a transvaginal ultrasound. Also, her gynecologist said that the baby's growth is 1 week delayed. Is this pregnancy normal?
Hello Dr Priyanga, thanks for putting up this question here
first of all i am interested to know how someone can assess delays in growth of baby at such early stages and with which parameters ? And secondly , if gestational sac is seen along with heartbeat then in my view pregnancy is totally normal. at this stage only a follow up scan is recommended after a week or 2 to see how it progresses further .
For your further assistance you can check early miscarriages guidelines from RCPI online and it will clear further doubts ,if there are any
