SMALL SAC WITH LITTLE FLUID AROUND HEART

I just went to my doctors appointment and he said the ultrasound results said that the sac around the heart was smaller then normal and had a small amount of fluid, but he wouldn't say what exactly that means or how serious it is. Is this something i should be worried about???

Hi!
Though not very clear from your post, I assume you are talking about the baby's heart in early days. Well, this could be a normal finding if baby is 7 weeks or less. Wait until 10-11 weeks and repeat ultrasound. In all probability the heart would be fully developed by then. However, if the ultrasound was done later than 12-14 weeks, then please follow up with your gynecologist. There may be some abnormality.
Take care!
