Question:Hello... I'm 6 weeks 2days pregnant.. Done with transvaginal scan yesterday.. Gestational sac and yolk sac is seen but no fetal pole or cardiac activity is visible.. Doctor suggested to repeat scan after 10 days.. I'm worried.. Is it common tat in early pregnancy scan heart beat is not visible??
Answer: Yes dear it is actually normal during pregnancy. Hence ur gynae told you to repeat the scan after 10 days so that the fetal heartbeat is clearly visible. Please do not worry as in ur case all others are clearly seen so the heartbeat will be soon visible. Hope it helps.
Question:Hello, I am 22 weeks pregnant and I got my u /s level-II done In which a 2.7 mm echogenic focus seen in left ventricle of foetal heart what is that, m so worried about it
Answer: Hello dear Echogenic intracardiac focus (EIF) is a small bright spot seen in the baby's heart on an ultrasound exam. This is thought to represent mineralization, or small deposits of calcium, in the muscle of the heart. EIFs are found in about 3–5% of normal pregnancies and cause no health problems. an echogenic focus is seen in the left ventricle of the heart. This is NOT a heart defect, it does NOT. change the function of the heart, and it does NOT cause heart disease. Usually the bright spot is a small calcium deposit and is a normal finding.
Many times an echogenic focus resolves itself. We had one with my freind daughter and it had disappeared on a follow up scan. it is a marker for chromosomal abnormalities(CA)... meaning that some babies with a CA show the echogenic focus, but not all babies with an echogenic focus have a CA.
My freind daughter had the same and now she is a healthy and happy little girl who will be 5 next week. She has no heart problems and no chromosomal abnormalities. Try not to worry. Just pray and have faith in God. If your doctor said you have nothing to worry about, dont worry at all. Dont stress yourself over it and always speak nothing but positive things about your babies health. Dont consume yourself down with negative thoughts but instead think positive about every aspect of your pregnancy and your baby.
