question re: blood clot in pg sac

jennny - October 4

Hi, I am writing a quesiton for my sister. She is in her 6th week of pregnancy, conceived naturally, but 100% sure of the conception date. Her hcg levels, which were measured twice were WNL. She had some heavy spotting/bleeding last weekend and since has had some stringy and brown discharge. She had an u/s apt today which showed a heartbeat and normal size baby and sac. However, there was something else inside the pregnancy sac, possibly a blood clot. This was 2 - 3 cm big (larger than the baby, but not attached to the baby). It was squishy and movable. They told her they had never seen something like this. It was not in the typical place a blood clot would be - not by the placenta. She asked if it was a twin that had died and they said no. What are your initial thoughts? Have you ever seen something similar? What would you estimate or guestimate her chances of having the baby survive b/c of this "thing" in there? Can blood clots that are inside a sac be absorbed? Thanks in advance!
Jenny

I am sorry, but I cannot even speculate as to what it might be. It may not be a bad idea to consult a maternal-fetal medicine specialist.
Good luck.
