So, I'm pregnant! I was pregnant last month too, but miscarried at 5 weeks. I went in to see a miscarriage specialist yesterday (since that was m/c #5) and he did an ultrasound, and now I'm confused on my dates.
According to my chart
, I should be 6 weeks today (Tuesday). But the ultrasound tech said the embryo was 6 weeks, 6 days yesterday, so 7 weeks today--exactly one week further than what I thought.
I was under the impression that these things were only accurate to within a week, either way, and that's with an early ultrasound such as this. (I think the later ones they do around 20 weeks are only accurate to within 2 weeks plus or minus). But the tech and Dr. Branch (the m/c specialist) both seemed certain that the fancy technology they have would tell them the exact age of the embryo.
According the the u/s calculations, I would have ovulated on Tuesday, September 27th, or cycle day 16. I'm thinking it's possible
I O'd on Thursday, the 29th, and got pregnant from sex the Sunday before, but that's not likely at all, considering my cf was sticky on Sunday. (The day after is a ? because I couldn't tell the difference between cf and semen). But my temp went back down on Sunday. Of course, my temps went back down after I was pregnant for sure too, so I guess that's not such an accurate measure.
Anyway, it's hard to tell, but I'm still thinking my chart is right and I didn't O till Oct. 4th, and the u/s is just not perfectly accurate. What do you all think?
I know it's only a week's difference and the baby will come whenever it's ready, but I was excited to know the exact O date since I was charting! Unfortunately, my temps may not be very accurate towards the end, because, although I always temped at the same time, the amount of sleep I was getting varied greatly.
The other question I have is, when can you see a heartbeat on ultrasound? I was under the impression you could see it at 5 weeks, so no matter what I'd be able to see it, but someone else told me they thought it wasn't till after 6 weeks. I did see a hearbeat, so that might make a difference.
