Ultrasound said 9 weeks and 3 days but the foetal pole only corresponds to 5 weeks 4 days
I am making enquiries for a friend who is pregnant, she has been told after an internal ultrasound that her pregnancy should be at 9 weeks and 3 days but the foetal pole only corresponds to 5 weeks 4 days. There is a heart rate of 94bpm. The doctor didn`t give her much information and she is worried, I`m just wondering if you know anything about this condition?
Thank you, Sam.
Early ultrasound scans can be a bit difficult to determine sometimes. A baby’s heart does not start beating until 6 weeks so I am not sure of this result. Ask your friend to contact the doctor again for a more comprehensive explanation.
