Why aren’t there two white masses on my friends 7 week scan?

No one said anything as she was rushed in to see what was going on pregnancy wise.
She’s 7 weeks now.
Why are there two white masses?

It looks like the yolk sac and the fetal pole

Could be twins? Could be some sort of cysts? Hard to say. I had very early 6/7 week scans with dc1 years ago and he looked like Casper the ghost, sort of round head bit which tapered down. What was she told, is it a viable pregnancy?

I would agree with happy8 it looks like yolk sac and fetal pole.

Agree with Happy, my scan a about the same time looked similar.

The round one on the right looks like the yolk sac and the longer one on the left looks like the fetus.

I would agree with yolk sac and fetus, on my scan at 6 weeks + they were two distinct things

Yep, one is baby, one is the sac. The sac will disappear in a few weeks. All of my early scans have looked exactly the same.
