My wife who is 38yo is 7 weeks pregnant with our second child. In our first u/s it was noted as "The Gestational Sac Size is slightly large". A single viable fetus was seen in the Uterus. The GS size was 32 x 21 mm corresponding to 8.4 weeks and the Fetal CRL is 5.1mm corresponding to 6.1 wks. Please let me have your opinions on this as we are concerned. Our GYN did seem a little worried about this development but also said that the measurements could level out.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the scan report is suspected to be abnormal, you should consider getting HCG levels tested to see if the levels are corresponding to the gestational age as per dates or as per the scan. A repeat scan can also be done after 2-4 weeks to re-confirm the findings. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of the treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any new/abnormal symptom immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
