Hi Ladies sorry ive bee MIA - currently moving right now !
I have my second ultrasound on Saturday , my first ultrasound was over 2 weeks ago and during the ultrasound we found that I had PCOS and my pregnancy was not as far along as according to my LMP.But she said that I have ovulated late due to the PCOS so she put me at 4-5 weeks.
We could see the sac and the yolk sac and a little dot which she said was the baby. Just wondering how far along I could have actually been at that point as 4wks sounds early to see the yolk sac etc??
So when does the yolk sac appear as I thought it was in your 5th week?
Im so impaitent just want to find out how far along I roughly am!
By the 4th week, the yolk sac is fully functioning, but very small. It cannot be seen on transvaginal ultrasound until week 5. In early pregnancy, the gestational sac, yolk sac and fetal pole grow at nearly the same predictable rate for all pregnancies. Of course, there are factors which might not allow the yolk sac to be seen until a few days later. For example, we would see the yolk sac (or gestational sac or fetal pole) in a very thin woman earlier than we would see it in an obese woman. If the ultrasound beam must travel through more tissue to reach the area of interest, it would be harder to see.
"Between days 7-10 from fertilization implantation usually occurs. Implantation should occur within the uterus if it does not this is considered an ectopic pregnancy. The amniotic sac, umbilical cord and YOLK SAC are already beginning to form."
