Does seeing the yolk sac on an transva___al ultrasound mean that the pregnancy is progresssing the way it should?? Thanks for any help.

When I had my ultrasound, at 9 weeks, the sonographer pointed out the yolk sac to me. I'm 13 weeks pregnant now and everything appears to be going as it should. :o)

Not really. There should be something in it, too. How far along are you?

With all due respect to "..." there does not have to be something in the yolk sac. During development, the embryo leaves the yolk sac. The embryo/fetus continues to get nourishment from the sac until the placenta is formed and functional. Marie~ Did your ultrasound show a fetus? How far along are you?

Well, I had a m/c Feb. 28 and never got a period so I'm not sure how far along I am. When they did my hcg levels a week or 2 ago the nurse said probably 4-5 weeks, but the tech couldn't say anything about the u/s the doctor has to and he won't be able to look at it until Monday. But I'm guessing 5 weeks. thanks again!
