Cant stop worrying :(

I had a scan when i was 7 weeks pregnant to rule out ectopic. We saw a little bean with a heartbeat but the sonographer said that it was a week behind and measuring 6 weeks. She said to come back for another scan which is tommorow.

Tommorow im supposed to be 8 weeks and 3 days. Im terrified something is wrong. Im worried that it will measure small or theres something wrong. Im looking for some reassurance. Is it normal for them to measure a bit small sometimes? Should i be worried?

Mine was 4 days behind where I thought I should be. They didn't seem worried though and I haven't got anymore scans until 12 weeks now. Hope all well at your scan x

When I've had early scans in the past I've been told that because baby is so small measurements can be out by up to about a week. You could be out a day or two with your dates also which can make baby appear smaller. Good luck!

I was very fortunate and had a great outcome when I experienced a small baby. My little embryo measured 12 days small, and now she's a healthy 4 month old baby. She certainly didn't stay small, as she was born weighing 8 lb, 15 oz. I hope you have the same luck as I did.

I measured 8 days behind LMP. They base your pregnancy off of a 28 day cycle which very few people actually have, so it's way more common to measure behind than ahead at your first dating scan. I'm sure everything is fine!
