    Default Please help answer my question?

    On Monday I had a dating scan which made me 8 weeks pregnant. As for my ultrasound the sonographer was in such a hurry i was in there for like two minutes and i saw another blob exactly like the baby she was showing us on the screen and she was trying to tell me the other was a yolk sac.. Though you could only see the other when she moved the probe around on my belly it was at the back.. She didn't even check out the supposed yolk sac so I have no idea what it was. Also, when I got home I checked the picture the sonographer gave me of bubs and the yolk sac is clearly attached to bubs with a white ring around it with a black centre. The other that she was calling the supposed yolk sac clearly wasn't it and it was exactly the same size as bubs..

    Could someone pls tell me what think it might have been because I'm abit concerned and have to wait 3 weeks for my 12 week scan :-(

    No idea? Are you thinking it's another baby, is that why you're concerned?
    These early scans usually are pretty quick as theres not much to see yet. The 12week one will be better, I know its hard but you'll probably just have to wait and not stress.

    It's hard to tell and like pp it is hard to tell so early on. If you do want a second opinion you are entitled to one. Perhaps go to a different doctor and just play the I think I'm pregnant card again??? Fingers crossed all is ok with your bubs - 2 fingers crossed it might be twins???

    not sure where you are but ultrasounds before 12 weeks my Dr said were free so might as well get one to ease your worries.

    Thanks for your replies ladies..
    Well, if it's twins of course i want to know and ill be making an official complaint to the hospital where I had my dating scan done because that woman should not be giving patients half misread information all just because she was in a hurry and couldn't be bothered.. On the other hand if it wasn't another baby then I'm concerned as to what it actually might have been. I know I'm only just over 8 weeks but my belly has gotten heaps bigger quicker this time and I swear I can feel bubbles sometimes late at night. Do you think this is possible?
    I haven't been that well lately that's why I am trying to avoid going to docs and getting another scan done.. I'd rather hibernate at home with DD & DS that seems to make my life alot easier :-)

    Hi Mummy,
    What the sonographer said is correct. It is the yolk sac which "feeds" the baby until the placenta is formed. I had one with my 1st baby that was bigger than her and it was the shape of a heart/jellybean with a white ring. Don't stress.

    The sonographer is trained to see heart beats which she would have if the yolk sac was a baby.

    I agree she should have taken more time to explain this to you to save you the worry. Hope this helps put your mind at ease.

    The yolk sac will be gone by your 12 week scan.

    Enjoy your pregnancy

    The senographer should have given you a clearer explanation of whatever it is there. I would have another scan to check.

    The sonographer is not qualified to tell you much, especially if they're unsure. A doctor has to look at the ultrasound and write the results. Do you have the results?
