    hi all
    i went for my first scan today and was supposed to be 11+6 by my dates but was expecting them to change it a bit but when she saw the baby she asked how far i think i was then she told me i was only 7+5,

    i told her i cant be as i wouldnt of been pregnant when i did pregnancy test, i had 6 bfp but some were only faint,

    she told me i would of conceived around 5th nov but at that time i allready got my bfp,
    i asked if the baby had stopped growing and she said baby had heartbeat and looks the right sort of shape and didnt seam really bothered and said i would be rescanned in 5 weeks,

    i left there sobbing at instantly thought something was wrong so i rang the midwife up and told her what happened and she said we got to go by the scan date and said i could of been pregnant then lost the baby then fell straight away, but i had a little blood when i was a a week late and doctor said it was nothing to worry about and i thought it was implantation bleeding,

    i have booked a private scan for next tue to put my mind at rest and to make sure the baby is growing,

    i have been going out of my mind today with worry x x:cry:

    I am sure one way or another, like the other ladies said...you have a heartbeat at a good stage, so that is definately something to be happy about!! Although it would be totally sad if you did loose one and get pg straight away, either way, I hope you get the news you need at your next scan!!! (((HUGS)))

    i was thinking the same bubz isnt growing my oh said could you have lost one and got preg straight away..... but i havent had a period for 9 weeks so no how did i lose one

    try not to worry i think our bubz are in funny positions and they couldnt measure for sure

    at least you have a scan soon... do you mind me asking how much it cost??

    my partner thinks the same, i did have spotting when i was a week late but only a little so think that might of been it,

    the scan was £99 but will be worth evry penny x

    i cant really afford it but i want a second opinion with my date, the sonographer didnt seem to bothered about me being put back 4 weeks and a day but i think she was a jobs worth!!

    ill leave my ticker till next week and see what date they give me then ill change it,

    hey hun hope you dont mind me popping over from ttc when i was pg with my ds i went for my 12 week scan only to be told i was 9 weeks at the time i just believed her and thought wow i really have got my dates mixed up i wasnt 100% on my dates as he wasnt planned, so had to go back when i was 13 weeks turned out that i was just over 14 weeks when i went for my 20 week scan turns out i was 21 weeks so i was almost right all along perhaps the baby is a little bit small but will prob have a growth spurt and soon catch up to your dates! Hope your scan goes ok xx

    Honey I wouldn't worry about it (easier said than done), early scans just aren't that accurate.
    I know of a lady that had IVF so the conception date is 100% accurate and they still told her was like 7wks instead of 9wks:dohh: but then at her 12wks scan they said she was 14wks:dohh: so she gained her 2wks back.

    Try not to stress, it is also possible that you did loss and fall pregnant straight away, either way honey it will work out.

    Good luck with your scan :hugs:

    i think when baby is more than 10 weeks, there a chance sonographer might made mistake in measurement of CRL... it depends on the baby's condition... wait till next scan... sonographer will start measure BPD, HC & FL (Head, abdomen and Femur length), so will get a better measurement.. for my last pregnancy, i have that detailed measurement when i was 13 wk preg... as long as the baby is fine, nothing to worry....

    Yeah I think we forget that just because that is the measure they use to determine age it doesn't mean it necessarily fits all pregnancies. Growth spurts occur earlier or later and there is no sure-fast rule for that (even though they would have you believe differently). Like PP said you often make up that time at later scans. They probably are wrong, and either a) measured wrong (may be their fault or not) b) baby hits its milestones a little later at this stage but catches up between scans.
    Each pregnancy is different and unique. Growth occurs at their schedule NOT OURS lol! Try not to worry! I hope the scan next week gets you the reassurance you need!
