8 Weeks Measuring Small

teacherwoman - May 2

Hi - according to my LMP, I should be 8 wks 1 day (and I kept track of my mp). Today I had my 2nd u/s, and the bby is measuring at 7wk2days (almost a wk smaller!) The doc said it was within the normal range, but I was wondering who, if anyone, has experienced this? I was temping, so I can almost pinpoint when I o'd and when the bby implanted (if temping is accurate). The doc was going to change my due date from Dec. 10th to Dec. 17th, but decided to leave it since it was within the 10 day range. Anyone know why this might happen, and what affect this might have on my due date? I really don't want to deliver on Christmas!!! Thanks in advance!

Delivery dates are just a guess. It is really a two week period in which you might deliver. You really have no control over it either way. Many first time mothers deliver late (not all though, my daughter was 4 days ahead of her due date). So I say, all is normal.

Well, I can't help, but I can tell you that When I was supposed to be 7 wks 2 days, on ultrasound I measured 6 wks 4 days. I was also very confused because I was keeping close track of my cycles. I'm not sure if maybe the ultrasound isn't 100% accurate or what, but I wouldn't worry about delivering on christmas... lol if it happens it happens, I guess. :/ What better christmas present though? Good luck!

Delivery dates are an estimate. If you deliver on or about Christmas, get over it, there are worse things in life! lol. Anyway, if he saw the heartbeat, I think it should be fine.
