I'm BFing DS and my period came back when he was 9 months. I had TWO periods and then a positive pregnancy test. I was not and did not keep a close track of the periods since we didn't care of we got pregnant again but they seemed pretty "regular" as far as cycle length goes.
So...here's the glitch...I had some EXTREMELY minor spotting. Like one or two drops of very watery pink. I mentioned it to my midwife and she wanted a test just to be sure. We are estimating I am just under 8 weeks right now based on when I can remember my last period. Today at the ultrasound the pregnancy measured only 5 weeks. Not a day more.
So...is it possible that this could be so far off (like maybe my cycle was longer than I remember and I ovulated SUPER late)? Or is it looking more like this is probably not a viable pregnancy?
I did have a miscarriage before DS and I am scared that this will be another one :(
Any experience you've had or feedback is helpful--thank you!

How long after your last period was the pregnancy test positive? Do you know?
It certainly seems possible that you could have ovulated late, particularly if you are still BFing or are under physiological or psychological stress (which you probably are with an infant).
I assume they will redo the ultrasound in a little while?
I recall that it took about three or four months after my cycles returned after having my son to get back to their normal rhythm. So, I think it's totally possible for you to have ovulated later than normal, especially if you weren't specifically tracking them.

I was on birth control when I got pregnant about 2 years ago and had my pregnancy dated. Since we weren't trying, I have no idea when my son was conceived, but I've tried to figure it out just out of curiosity. I used to mark my periods on a calendar and it would seem from the date they gave me that I ovulated 2 weeks after when I would have guessed I ovulated. At the time it didn't really concern me because I didn't even know how pregnancies were dated/calculated, but all I can say is that it can be off! ...and my son is now happy and healthy, so I don't think it's a cause for concern :)
Now that I'm post-pregnancy (presumably) ovulating, it's even more off whack so I wouldn't be surprised if it was 4-6 weeks off.
