They found something me in for another scan. I could have ovulated later and I know they didn't really measure the baby but I'm a mess. Hi everyone, by my calculations I should be 7 weeks & 3 days today, however, at the dating scan they told me that I'm measuring 5 weeks & 6 days How could this be? Has anyone else had a scan which seemed way off? They could see progress from my last scan and I now have a fetal pole but no.
Hi everyone I went for a private early pregnancy scan for a number of reasons today very complicated personal circumstances, my age, lack of any real pregnancy symptoms - and I'm just a worryer! I was very certain about my dates, as my boyfriend lives abroad it narrows down the possible conception date!
But when I had the scan she was adamant I was weeks. She saw a heartbeat and said all looked healthy and normal but she was certain about the dates. So - from the above do you think it's at all possible her dates are right? And if not, could it mean something's wrong and the baby isn't growing properly?
I will be doing everything I can to avoid induction this time round. Fri Jan 16, Im going for another scan on Tuesday as Im nine weeks with still no symptoms and the few Ive had have gone, I suppose if alls well then Ill have to be asking how they get their dates lol.
Or are the dates at this point inaccurate? For what it's worth, not sure if this makes a difference, but my cycle was always between days each month. Thanks for any help from anyone better at this whole pregnancy thing than me - or better mathematicians! Well when I had an early scan I would have said I was about 8 weeks but they said just 7 after early scan.

When I went for my 12 week scan they said then that I was more like 13 weeks and moved my date forward again in line with my original thoughts. They said at my 12 week scan its a much more accurate date wise than an early scan.
I went back a week later and they saw a hb. So yes, it can happen. Early scans are highly inaccurate as they are measuring something so small and just a little twitch can put things out. Agree with the above poster - wait for your dating scan - that will be the date to go from, and you will probably find it correlates with your own dates more then. I had a scan at what I believed to be 9 weeks to the day.

She was totally adamant and didn't say they was any room for error - even when I started giving TMI about see more having had sex on two nights since july 18th! Am just going o be reassured about heartbeat and be patient until oct 7th nhs scan. But the sperm can hang about for a few days and you can ovulate a little later than when you had sex So now due on the 10th and all my following scans have said the 10th so we will see!
I think you probably ovulated a few days later this month.

When you got the BFP was it a faint one or a dark line? Were you testing because you thought you were already late?
Early scans at that stage can be up to 5 days out. I had one at 6 weeks that was 3 days out, but by 9 weeks I had got those three days back again. So if the scan is 5 days out, and you ovulated a few days late, and those sperm were super long life swimmers that waited around, it is perfectly possible for your date to be about 10 days out. As to whether or not something is wrong, only time will tell that. For the moment the sonographer has given you no cause for concern and said that everything looks good on the scan.
Seeing a good heartbeat is always reassuring.

Have you got a re-scan booked? This is a very interesting thread! Everyone else seems to have had the opposite experience.
I thought I'd had click here period towards the end of July but they reckoned that must have been implantation. It was quite heavy. That seems like a big difference!
No no a 6 week peanut is barely visible and looks like a squiggly seahorse. An Could A Dating Scan Be Wrong Pregnancy week peanut is 3 times the size of a 6 weeker and looks like a little jelly baby with tiny little arms and a big head. Right, called the clinic as was getting in a right old pickle - having a bf who lives abroad makes you fairly certain on dates!
They've just click here - which wasn't explained last night, even when I questioned it - that they give a date as weeks since conception. Therefore measuring a peanut gestation of weeks ie since conception also equates to me being weeks pregnant - all ties up perfectly. Yay - glad you got it sorted!
As for my peanut Blimey, MNers sure know their stuff. Going by the scan dates I was pregnant 5 days before the first day of my last period 4th June. I know that my last period was definately not implantation bleeding as we didn't dtd until 15th June and it had been a good few months?
I've worked out my own due date by counting days Could A Dating Scan Be Wrong Pregnancy of gestation from conception from the earliest possible conception date and it comes out as 3 days after the scan date and 5 days before the first day of last period date so I reckon I'm going with that!
I've got my 16 week MW app on Tuesday so I'll ask her about it then as it's a bit confusing - I couldn't have been pregant before my period! Im going for another scan on Tuesday as Im nine weeks with still no symptoms and the few Ive had have gone, I suppose if alls well then Ill have to be asking how they get their dates lol.
