Irregular shape of sac
mama42 posted:
I am 42, we've been trying to get pregnant for a year, and finally we found out I'm pregnant two days ago! I went to the doctor yesterday to confirm the pregnancy and the doctor did a vaginal ultrasound and said that the sac looks suspicious but messures to 4W5D which is exactly what I am. He had zero bedside manners and said that I shouldnt have hight hopes (not going to see THAT doctor again), and that anyway 50% of women my age end their pregnancy in a misscarriage. I know I'm not the youngest girl to have a baby, but I just got married less than a year ago with husband #2 and I already have 2 kids of my own 16 & 13, which both were healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Basically I had 2 pregnancies in my lifetime and both were healthy (41 weeks 9lbs baby and 39weeks 8lbs baby).

I am so scared because of what the doctor said and although I've been reading a lot online about odd shapes to the sac and not necessarily does it have to do anything with misscarying the baby. I would like to get some advice.

I have another appointment next Monday with another doctor at that department and will be only 5weeks then, so obviously no heartbeat will be there yet, but perhaps a better looking sac?
