Has anyone had this situation. I am 8 weeks pregnant but the ultrasound is showing that I am 61/2 weeks pregnant. I am scared. I just hope everything is ok. Please share your stories or input if you have experienced this. Thanks.

You are 8 weeks from your last period. Therefore you say 8 weeks. Your baby however is 6.5 weeks from conception. This by the way is how they will give you a due date. Nothing to worry about. We don't concieve on the first day of our last period it is just a stepping stone until we know when we concieved. Good luck to you.

I thought I was 8 wks tomorrow, but I will actually be 7 wks tomorrow. I ovulated later than normal. I had an u/s today and saw the baby and heard the heartbeat, 150 bpm. The doctor said everything was fine. Don't worry!

Nat - I has the same thing happen to me too. I was 9 weeks along my first Ultrasound, but the US put me at 8 weeks. I was a little worried. but they could still see a heartbeat, so the midwife said everything was normal. We did hear the heartbeat thro a doppler at 13 weeks (by LMP). I am 14 weeks and 2 days now, and I think I am doing fine. So do not worry. Lot of things interfere. If you have a tilted uterus, then that might be causing an interference in the ultrasound too.

I had my first appointment set at 8 weeks and when I had the ultrasound, I was barely at 6 weeks. They found a heart beat and said everything was fine. My doctor said mine was because I have irregular periods so the dates were off.
