Baby only measured 5w3d. The doc said the sac looks good but it is just too early. I know that it isn't too early! I know the exact day I ovulated!!! This is just awful, I can't go thru it again, and I just know that I will be!!
Please send lots of prayers this way to baby!!!! I really need them!!! I go back Oct 9th, and I just know it will be done by then!
I knew there was a chance this could happen again, but deep down I thought maybe things would be ok this time. Oh goodness, I need to just go and cry, thanks girls for listening!!
I am sorry you are going through this. It's so hard when you don't know for sure because you can't really get any peace and you alternate between hope and sadness. How far along do you think you are? Personally I feel there is always hope and maybe you are off on ovulation after all?
Keep us posted. We will be thinking of you, hoping right along with you that everything turn out fine.
With my Cora I was measuring 5 days behind, and I knew the day I O'd. My Dr. tried to convince me I O'd later than I thought I did but I know I didn't. I ended up having her 12 days early too (just sort of ignore the fact that I lost her for the moment, since it was a cord accident and losing her had nothing to do with her "health").
I'll be praying for you honey. Remember that babies are individuals too, and some can grow at slower rates, so just because s/he not measuring "average" doesn't mean s/he's not healthy. I was talking to the u/s tech with my "big" u/s because I was worried because at that point she was measuring another 3 days behind, and she said that u/s measurments can be as much as 2 weeks off as well. So don't give up hope, okay?
I posted to you in the May DDC, but wanted to add support here, too. Try to keep a little hope (faith like a grain of mustard seed). I measured small at my second u/s, first one where we could see a baby, and at the next u/s two weeks later baby was right on track. I'm not trying to create false hope, just don't want you to think everything is bleak. Keeping you in my prayers for as long as you need them.

Oh honey, hang in there. You never know what can happen. I've heard of babies measuring small early on and then being just fine later on. In any case, I'll be praying hard for you and your little bean.
Our C-section is scheduled for Feb 16th! Then we'll know whether Baby Bennett is a BOY or a GIRL!!!
I'm sorry you're going through this but try to stay positive until the next u/s -- like it was said we were told that early in pregnancy you can measure off by as much as 2 weeks so try to not give up hope. I know its really hard but we'll all be thinking about you -- sticky dust to you!

I also measured a week behind on my ultrasound [which had nothing to do with her turners syndrome] she was just a bit slow at growing, she measured fine on the second ultrasound, she would of been find if she hadnt of had Turners so hang in there and think positive
