I am currently pregnant with my second child. I had been having "symptoms" so I went to my family doctor on March 26th for a pregnancy test. The test came back positive, so they asked me when my last period was and I said Feb 13, so they estimated that I was at 6 weeks pregnant at that time. After that appointment I had to find an OBGYN, I found one and had my first appointment yesterday, they did an ultra-sound and the ultra sound tech said that her measurements say that I was 6 weeks (which by the time of this appointment I should have been 9 weeks, according to my family docs estimation). The tech tried to get a heartbeat but couldnt get one. I've been freaking out since. I keep thinking the worse. I guess my question is, is there anyway my family doctor was wrong about when I got pregnant, would they really have been able to detect the pregnancy at 3 weeks (if the ultra sound tech is right)? Sound I be worried that they estimation is 3 weeks different and that there was no heartbeat? I don't go back till next monday and I am so scared, I lost my first pregnancy in miscarriage but carried my second to term (he arrived two weeks early) but Ive been a mess since leaving the appointment yesterday.....
I think they are counting from your lmp to me when I count from the time of your bfp it would make this week be more your 7th wk and what did you see on the u/s yesterday ?? Was there nothing in the sac,was there any Yolk,fetal pole ?
The baby was there just no heart beat and they said 6 weeks along, they want to redo the ultra sound next moday but I am just kinda scared that somethings wrong since my family doc said I was 6 weeks (3 weeks ago) and this tech said im 6 weeks now but my lmp was in feb so I'm all kinds of confused and scared.
Thank you for your reply mom2brendan. I hate to inform you that my baby isn't alive and I will most likely be having a D&C but will know more about what they are gonna do next week since the baby hasn't exited my body on its own yet...(after 5 weeks of being dead.) Thank you for your reply.
