Note the flocculence in the amniotic fluid and the lack of form in these 54-day fetuses. By 54 days, limbs, head, abdominal organs, heart and ribs should be readily seen. This pregnancy felt normal on palpation. Although fetal size and shape appear normal, thorough examination revealed lack of fetal heart beats or movement. The amniotic fluid is also abnormally cloudy.
