I just had my 1st ultrasound today. 2 sacs, one baby. Seems a twin implanted but nothing grew. Bean is measuring 6 weeks 4 days, one more day than my estimate. Heart rate is 117 bpm. The doctor said this is a lil slow and wants me back in 2 weeks for a repeat. I keep researching and see that 117 seems normal for bean's gestational age. What I figure is the doctor is still basing where I should be off LMP (which would have me at 7w2d). So I am slow based off LMP and I think the 2nd ultrasound will confirm that bean is exactly where I said it should be; 6.5 weeks. I read that some doctors want 2 ultrasounds to confirm the difference in gestational age between LMP and my later ovulation. Still, it doesn't seem fair they put that nervousness on me for 2 weeks. I think I will call the office tomorrow to confirm that the 117 is slow for 7w2d, not 6w4d.
