I have no advice for you as far as the heartbeat because I've never had an u/s that early. However, I too have read that the heart doesnt' start beating until some time in the second month.

As for the size. One thing to consider is that the "best" measurements are those taken at the 18-20 week ultrasound (as far as determining gestational age). However, that being said, at both my "early" (11 1/2 week) u/s and at the 18-20 week one, I was measuring 1 1/2 weeks younger. However, my periods are always extremely regular, so we (DH and I) really aren't sure which due date is right. I definitely wouldn't worry about the size issue just yet, especially since her periods are irregular.
