during u/s she said the sacs looked good and saw heartbeat, but very concerned baby smaller than should be. She said maybe you were off with O date, which I couldn't be more that a day. She didn't say if implantation could affect it and I was too upset to ask. She said she was sorry, but with my age m/c chances were hi, (42) and I should come back in 1 wk to check again. So very worried should I prepare for the worst or still hope. ANY input GREATLY appreciated

my doctor said here was a week range of error per the measurements- so one week high or low- and that measurements are just averages.. i have also read of plenty of people who went and didn't see heartbeats to seeing them and sac being normal a week or so later.. try hanging in there- i know the waiting's hard..

I was in your boat. At 4 weeks nothing could be found, at 5 a sac, at 7 a pole and measuring 4-5 weeks and then at 8 weeks a baby and heart beat measuring 8 weeks. Now a healthy soccer player at 22 weeks.

I also had bleeding and cramping and I miscarried a twin. I think is you have faith and think positive you will be better off.

trena - we are in the same boat - I even had a fertility monitor so I know when we ovulated and conceived but when you think about it - the time to implantation can be anwhere from 6-12 days - that's an entire week long range and the baby doesn't start to make HCG or anything until he's implanted. That how I account for the week discrepancy. I wouldn't worry about it. Also when you consider sperm can live 5 days, if you ovulate late for some reason - even though you know what day you had s_x, if you don't release your egg for 5 more days, you could still conceive then and it would be 5 days later than you thought! It's just not an exact science. I'll say a prayer for you!!!
