Measuring 2 1/2 weeks behind.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Good Morning,

 

According to my LMP and my positive HPT I was led to believe I am 9 weeks pregnant. I was having some brown spotting yesterday and the OB had me go in to get an ultrasound. Based on the ultrasound they said I am more at 6 1/2 weeks rather than 9 weeks. They did see the heartbeat, but did not tell me the rate or anything. I am just wondering if this is common, or something to be alarmed with.

I would be concerned. I've heard of this happening with impending miscarriage. I hope that isn't the case for you though. hug2.gif

Be prepared mentally for the possibility.

I'm measuring about one week behind but things looked good on the US. While there is a chance that something may be going on, it may also be a case of late ovulation or a longer cycle. It's not easy but try to stay positive for now. Are you having a follow up? The tech said they may need to do another US for dating since I was only about 6w 3d for this one and that is really early.
