This is a deformed gestational sac isn't it? I thought it was supposed to be pretty much perfectly round? I might be wrong but this is for a friend so input is appreciated. The image is what the doc says is 4 weeks and a half gestational sac but my friend is almost cirtainly closer to 5 weeks 5 days by her calculations of conception they are saying she conceived the 9th of this month and the last time she had intercourse was the 2nd of this month. I think her baby is not forming like it should be and she was apparently on birth control when she conceived and she also has numerous reproductive health issues and suffered a misscarriage before. :(

Honestly, she's far too early to make any kind of determination like that.
Her being not as far along as she things would just mean she ovulated at a different time then she thought she did.

Yeah imo from personal experience that looks nothing like my gestational sac at that age. I will see if I can find a picture.

ETA this was 6w2d from my LMP. I was on the pill too when I conceived. You can see the yolk sac and the begining of the fetal pole.

I had a deformed gestational sac and I mis-carrying because of it (or so I was told in the ER) Not to freak you out or anything, just telling you my personal experience. I was about 5 weeks too. I didn't know there was anything wrong until I started bleeding progressively and went to the ER where they did the ultrasound.

It could just be the angle of the wand that is making it look like that. A slight move to one side or the other could have produced a different picture. Did her OB say something was wrong?
