Anyone had 12week scan and measure small?


Hi had my 12 week scan today and thought I was 12+2 but only measured 10 weeks. This is my 4th baby and I have always went for scan and there has been a few days of a difference but nothing as big as 2 weeks. Wondering if I've just got my dates totally wrong or if it could just be that it is a small baby to go back in 2 weeks for another scan.

Thanks
Xx

Are you positive on your dates? And was everything else ok - good heartbeat?

I know it would worry me some, but it could all be fine. I am measuring about half a week behind by LMP, but since I know I ovulated late I am actually right on. Maybe you ovulated later than you think? Plus ultrasounds can be off. My OB said he feels confident plus or minus 5 days. So lets say you ovulated 5 days later than you think, plus the scan was off by 4-5 days. That could account for most of that 2 week difference.

Thanks karoolia suppose when you think of it like that. Can't wait till next scan to get proper due date as they couldn't get it today. Everything else with baby was fine xx

I had quite a few scans this pregnancy because of previous losses and while mostly the measurements were consistent a couple were out, which worried me. I think scans generally aren't that accurate so I think most likely baby is totally fine

I think you're in good shape then! Baby may have been wiggling around a little too much too and thrown off the measurements. Try not to worry and hopefully your next scan will reassure you.

The next two weeks are going to drag in. she did mention baby's chin was on its chest so maybe that didn't help and had to get me to shake my hips to see if baby would move 😂 Roll on two weeks time x

My babies never seem to cooperate with being measured. Ive always been put ahead. So i think it can measure abit either side. If hb was good hopefully baba was just curled up abit xx

Yeah, when did you get bfp? If baby was measuring let's say AT LEAST 10 weeks, because we know it was minimum 10 plus however many days more it would've been if baby had been more straightened out, and heartbeat and all else looked fine, I'd say baby is hopefully probably ok because chromosomal things etc tend to have already happened before 10 weeks. But like one pp asked id be looking at when you'd got your bfp?

Sometimes scans can be off by quite a bit, hopefully your next scan will set your mind at ease.
