Answer: If you have a small or invisible gestational sac, it can mean a few things depending on your situation. Here are a few possible explanations:
Miscalculated Dates of Last Period
If your pregnancy is still in the very early stages and this is the first ultrasound, the pregnancy may be earlier than what you may have calculated by the date of your last period. It may be that you ovulated later in your cycle. Most cycles are 28 days with ovulation around day 14 of the cycle. Some women have longer cycles and ovulate later, which means the pregnancy may not be as advanced.
Your doctor may choose to follow you closely over the next few weeks to see if the sac and fetus are growing as they should and then give you a new due date based on ultrasound measurements.
The Pregnancy Is Not Advancing
While this is rare, it may be the first sign that the pregnancy is not advancing as it should. It doesn’t always mean you are going to have a miscarriage, but the doctor will continue to monitor your ultrasounds often to see if your pregnancy will continue.
There is an issue with “low progesterone levels” early in pregnancy and if the gestational sac measures small, the doctor can test for progesterone levels and treat it with replacement.

Question: Hello doctor, my LMP IS JAN 7. 2019. but am not sure about my conception date,but am sure its around jan 18th to jan 25th. Doctor suggested me to take abdominal U/Sscan on 21st feb(6weeks 4days) but the report said only yolk sac seen but ,NO fetal pole and cardiac activity seen.
So doctor did transvaginal scan on march 11th(9weeks 1day) still no cardiac activity.
Again on march 18th (10weeks1day) i underwent transvaginal scan where again NO cardiac activity but foetal pole is seen this time.
Doctor asked me to come on march 25th(11weeks 1day) now iam 10weeks 2days.
Im a thyroid patient for 2yrs. I was taking taking 50mcg eltroxin recently but after thyroid test on 12th march doctor now suggested me to add 12.5mcg along with my current dosage.
Is my baby really growing or a missed misscarriage? What to be done or i have to wait till march 25th?Please clarify on this.
Answer: Hello dear. If in the scan the growth was showing 10 weeks 2 days then that is a good sign and if the heartbeat have arrive then it means ur baby is growing. In case of no heartbeat it could have been a misscarriage. I would suggest stay positive and eat healthy. Ur gynae may keep testing ur thyroid levels to ensure it is in control. Hope it helps.
