Iam 5w 4d pregnant from my LMP, but according to the (Abdominal)ultrasound report, the gestational age is 6w 3d.. and G sac 16mm....with No Fetal pole.
And also seen some free fluid in the pelvis.
Is this common to have no fetal pole at the weeks i am....??
My Dr said that, the fetal node should be seen, by this time....and asked me to return after week for another ultrasound.
this is my first pregnancy...iam 26....

Hi Anonymous,

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

The Fetal Pole is normally seen as early as 5 1/2- 6 1/2 weeks. Although, your ultrasound is giving a date of 6w, 3d-- that is just an estimate...if you know the date of your LMP, that is the most accurate date to go by. Try to remain positive, development occurs extremely fast in the beginning of pregnancy, so one week will make the world of difference.

Take good care of yourself and keep us posted,
