:Waves: Hello ladies! My name is Kristin im the mother of two children and one on the way.. Oh and i think i lost my MIND!!!! After many MANY M/C .(ONE mc is just one to many BUT i was blessed with 4 angel babies!)
My LMP was 12/16/06 that would make me 6 weeks today? Right? WRONG i went to the ER last night due to some dischage (light yellow TMI i know lol) Well they give me an U/S and i was waiting and wanting to see my baby (seeing how everyone on my DDC is showing awesome u/s pics) well the tech tells me "your only 5/2 weeks" and "all i see is a yoke and sack" i said "so my baby is gone?" she said no that just means your too soon to see a baby.. I then said i SHOULD be almost 6 weeks.. going threw the MC fear and the wall of she is going to tell me i lost the baby (im nuts i know@@)
WELL im having no bleeding, they did a nice lookie lol and everything looks fine.. i just dont understand why everything is saying im only 5/2 weeks (yesterday) its not a HUGE deal but i have this gut fear when i go back friday for another US to make sure everything is fine.. im still going to just have a Sack and yoke and no baby..
I attempt to talk to my DDC club about things and they are all AWESOME ladies, but most dont know what a MC feels like kwim?And i feel like i bug them when i go on and on about the fear of a MC lol.. So a friend of mine tol dme about yall.. so i hope u dont mind me jumping in (im not always this nuts hahahaa)
I wouldn't worry too much if you're a few days off honey. You may not have ovulated when you though, or maybe you implanted late, or maybe your baby is just getting a slow headstart. Both my pregnancies I have measured behind what I should be (5 days w/Cora and 4 days w/Jelly).
You're not cramping or bleeding. I think you should be fine.
And besides...u/s aren't always completely accurate either!
i can understnad how that would make you feel really anxious!!!!!!! Chances are that you ovulated a little later than you thought, or that you had late implantation. Have they asked you go to in for another scan in a week or so???? (((hugs))) sending lots of positive vibes your way
i measured a few days behind. i think i have with every pregnacy that i ever had. it is completely normal to not measure exactly right on your due date. i think it is much more common to measure off a few days than to be exact. i bet your little one is doing great and you have a nice h/b when you go back.
I agree with the ladies, unless you know what day you ovulated then the ovulation day could have been a little later. I have long cycles myself so I have to go by my O day to get my correct edd. If I wasn't temping I wouldn't have known that I was where I am at.
When is your next u/s? I hope you get to see a lot more next time. Wishing u lots of hugs!

Welcome! You've come the to the right place! we've all pretty much been in your shoes. I've heard that it's normal to be off by a few days. I hope you have a good u/s in the coming weeks. Until then, try to enjoy this little peanut. No spotting is a great thing!
At my last u/s the baby was measuring 6 wks 1 day when I know when I ovulated and I was 6 wks 6 days...5 days off. The u/s sound tech said I was measuring just fine, that at this point in the pg. it is completely normal to measure up to one week behind to one week ahead and still be right on target. (((hugs)))
After having had 4 losses, and with the last one the baby measured 2 weeks behind for the first few u/s's before the doctor said the baby wasn't growing further and there was no heart beat....I truly do understand the fear of hearing that your baby is measuring a week behind. I started to panic at my last u/s on Wed. and the tech had to double reassure me.
