Melanie - March 11

Hi, today I have just had my first scan. According to my dates, I am 10 weeks pregnant. My last period was 28th Dec, I believe I concieved around the 12th Jan. I took a pregnancy test on the 28th Jan which was positive. The results of the scan show the baby to be only 5.2mm. I have been asked to go back next Friday for a further scan. I am devastated. Can the dates be wrong. I have had no bleeding or pain. Has anyone else experienced this or know of someone. Please can anyone give me something positive to hold on to. This will be the longest week of my life. Thanks

Try to be positive maybe your dates are wrong. Did your doctor check your hormone levels to see if they are lower than they should be? I had an ultrasound at about 6 weeks which measured 5 mm and then I had another at 8 weeks and it measured 13 mm. My doctor did 2 because I suffered a m/c in the past. Good Luck and try to think positive maybe you aren't as far along as you think.

the DR never can tell "exact" dates im on 3 and they told me they can be off by up to 3 wks so you could actually just be 7 wks dont worry your baby does its most growth in the last cpl of mths so everything could be perfectly fine

you can date pretty accurately based on your + hpt. if you got a + pg test then you must have conceived a min of 8 days before that...but usually it takes even longer to show up as a positive so more likely you conceived 10-14 days before you hpt. i am not sure what age a 5.2 mm baby corresponds to. i am sorry you're going thru this. my baby is dating 11 days behind. i am 7w3d and the baby is dating 5w5d. i realize i will probably m/c esp since the hb is only 89bpm. best wishes, melissa
