I don't know about the heartbeat, but when I went in for a u/s last week I was 6w6d from LMP, but the baby measured 6w0d. The u/s tech said it was nothing to worry about. I think it means I ovulated later than CD14, which is normal. Does that sound like it might have also happened for you?
I wish I knew more about the heartbeats. Ours was 133, but I have no idea what that means.
I hope everything turns out well.

From what I was told - h/b that early is all over in range, AND hard to read depending on the machine and tech, so I would not stress about that - yeah, not easy for us, I know.
At my 6 week u/s I measured small too, I was told it's not uncommon at all, and by 8 1/2 weeks, I was big, and at 20 weeks, I was right on. So I think every baby just grows a bit different.

At my first ultrasound with Cora, they moved my due date from May 9th to May 14th because she was measuring 5 days smaller than she should have been. But the Dr. said the machine couldn't read heartrate. However, at another ultrasound the tech did it, so I think he just didn't know how to check it. lol!

Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I think it's very common to be off a few days to a week at the first ultrasound unless you are using your ovulation date not last menstrual period date and you are sure when you ovulated. Not all of us ovulate on CD 14. As for the heartbeat, I think it tends to be very variable that early on. Unless your doctor is concerned, I wouldn't be (although I know this is easier said then done).

Good luck.

Yah, it's very common to be a little off on days... all it takes is a teeny twitch in the measuring and you could be a day or more off. As for the h/b, sounds ok to me. I understand your worries tho...

Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
