irregular gestational sac shape

This isn't really a question, but a response. I had this question for the last few months - If the gestational sac is irregular shape, can whats inside be okay??? My gestational sac was irregular shape - not round, oval, peanut shaped or any of the other typical shapes - but very asymmetric and kind of squished on one side, just a weird shape. Anyways, it was originally called a blighted ovum and I scheduled a D and C. Then a yolk sac and fetal pole showed up inside - and a heartbeat. The heartbeat stayed strong for a few weeks and the fetus was growing. However, the sac never looked normal and I had a suspicion that something was wrong. So at 9 weeks I had an US and the baby had stopped growing a week earlier, and no heartbeat was seen. The irregular sac was a bad sign in my case and in general I think a pregnancy is more likely than not to be abnormal if any component of it, including the gestational sac, is abnormal. My prior pregnancy was totally normal and I looked at the sac in the one US image I have and it looked like a peanut with a point - so they can be a slightly weird shape and be fine, but if it is bizarre - like I would call by miscarriage sac - then its not a good sign. I gave the baby a chance even though I knew it would probably not make it, and I would encourage others to as well. But be prepared for it to not work out...
