Hello doctor,

My 8 weeks ultrasound showed an irregular gestational sack. It is mostly round but sort of pointed in one location. What does this mean?

Fetal pole 158, measuring 8 weeks and 1 day gestational age. Please explain.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

If fetal cardiac activity is present and pregnancy is 8 weeks on ultrasound. If you do not have any pain or bleeding per vaginal than there is more chance that with medicines pregnancy has more chance for growth.

Irregular gestational sac sometimes can be due to uterine contraction which can be present throughout pregnancy. If this is the case then there is more chance that pregnancy is good and there is more chance for growth. One more reason of irregular sac is also a sign of early abortion.

But we can do only these things. Do take complete bed rest. Do minimum activity. Take small frequent meals. Take micronized Progesterone for 2 to 4 times a day 200 mg, Folic acid tablet, and Thiamine or multivitamin tablet.

All these will be helpful for growing pregnancy. And repeat ultrasound after 10 to 15 days. Do drink more water.
