I got there and the woman asked how far along i was. I told her almost 11 weeks. So she just did the abdominal ultrasound. She found the baby right away, but had a confused look on her face. She told me I wasn't 11 weeks. I sat and waited while she did her measurements. Then she turned the screen to me and let me see the lil bean. I could see the heart beating and I even saw her lil legs move. Then she told me I was all done and to have a nice day. I stopped her and asked her if I wasn't 11 weeks, how far along was I? She looked back at the screen and said I was 8 weeks and 4 days and due Janurary 25.
So that is why my midwife couldn't find the baby's heart rate at my first appt. While I am thrilled the baby is happy and healthy, I am a little disappointed to think that I'm not as far along as I thought I was.
