Is measuring 4 days behind a problem?
 
Hello ladies. When I went in for an u/s at 9 weeks 1 day, I measured 9 weeks 4 days. When I went in for an u/s at what should have been 11 weeks 4 days, I measured at exactly 11 weeks. How could I be measuring ahead at one facility and behind at another?

different technicians and equipment differences probably !
there is usually a window of a few days to almost a week that measurements can go either way...
I am sure it is nothing to worry about ;)

Ditto to the other girls...unless your dr says its a problems you are OK. what they are measuring is so small that its easy for the dates to be off a little bit.

NO !!! at my ultrasound at 11 weeks I was bdhind 4 days and they said that you can be up to 7 days difference and everything is ok. Sometimes it is just the way the baby is laying... At my next appointment evertyhing was measuaring right on time

Ditto to everyone else. I wouldn't worry about it unless the dr said that there was reason to be concerned.

I think everyone else has just about covered it all... :D

There are so many variables that go into an u/s...technician, machine, measuring technique, the formulas used for the averages, etc...

I bet you could go back to the first place and have 2 diff techs u/s you on the same machine and get diff results...

Think positive and remember you have all of us praying for you!!! :cheer:

Thanks ladies! The doc said that everything looked great so now I am feeling good.

Another thing that you need to remember, is that those measurements are AVERAGES! Your baby could be growing at a different rate than average.

I'm glad everything is okay!
