I went for a ultrasound yesterday and I am 9w3d but they said it looked like 7 weeks. I know for sure that I am 9w because I was charting my ovulation and I for sure know my last period was on Feb 19 and they only time me and my husband had s_x was on March 3. Could the baby be just small or is it a sign of a bigger problem?

Was it 7 weeks fetal age because you know that you are 2 weeks ahead of the baby, for instance I'm 8 weeks and my baby is 6weeks. Did they tell you that you are 7weeks but baby is really 5.I'm sorry if I didn't make sense.

I think you need to discuss this with your doctor and get another u/s asap to check the baby is still growing. I haven't had this but I have seen it can be a problem as the baby may have stopped developing - I hope this is not the case but you should get it checked out again. It's less of a problem if your cycles are more than 28 days as then you would ovulate late or if you aren't sure of dates. If the baby had a good heartbeat you have a better chance. Hope things work out.

Alexis - you made sense but they were not talking gestational age.

I had a doctors appt today to discuss the ultrasound report. The report said that based on size it was 7w1d the heart beat was 143, and the pregnancy appeared viable. I discussed with my doctor of what is called fetal growth retardation. He is sending me back for another u/s in 2 or 3 weeks to monitor the growth.
