I got my first positive pregnancy test 4 weeks ago which would have made me 8 weeks now. I started spotting so i had a scan and the baby has a heart beat but is only 6 week size. I know that you can be inaccurate with date but surely if i had a positive test 4 weeks ago i would be at least 7 weeks now cause it takes 2 weeks from conception to positive test...i'm confused. How is it possible as i would have had to have conceived on the day i got a positive pregnancy test!? Could the baby just be small (its def. grown in last 2 weeks as it could not be seen 2 weeks ago) any advise? I am being rescanned in 7 days

Try a due date calculator online...about.com has one, and babyzone does too. Put in the date of your LMP and it will tell you what week you're in.

thanks but i thought i should be 6 weeks ...they scanned and said 5 weeks so when i went back 2 weeks later for repeat scan i expected 7 weeks but they said baby was only 6 weeks...sooo strange and worrying!

Do you think its possible that because of the way your uterus lays, they couldn't get a good angle to get the correct measurement of the fetal. Don't worry, as long as you see the heartbeat, and the fetus is growing, should be fine.
