Seems like someone measured wrong at some point. When was your last menstrual period??

bee09 :  babe is so small at this point even a millimeter can make a difference.  They may have just mismeasured.

bee09 :  Hi! Same thing happened to me. I was so dissapointed when I learned that I was pushed back 2 weeks, as they couldn’t use my LMP since they said it was irregular, therefore, they went by the measurements. I am now 22 weeks along, and the past couple ultrasounds, the baby has been measuring a week ahead. I have no clue if I will make it to my due date, a part of me believes I am really 2 weeks ahead, but I changed OBGYN and she hasn’t disputed the new due date. But the baby is so far growing and has passed all tests for genetic abnormalities. In the scheme of things I’m not sure how important it will be if I measured 2 weeks behind. There’s not too much information out there!

bee09 :  I think they mismeasured.  Was it vaginal or abdominal.  I know those make a serious difference.

Scans, even in late pregnancy when baby is big can be off 10 to 15%. Heartbeat was good so it’s probably fine. I might get another scam at the same place and with the same tech as the first one to be sure.

Sounds like human error…especially since you went to two different places!

If it makes you feel any better, they thought my niece was 11lbs and in distress so they performed an emergency c-section on my SIL 20 days before her due date. Turned out she was only 9lbs and just REALLY chill in the womb…so then the doctor who performed the c-section started joking as to whether or not they should ‘put my niece back’. 

At your stage in the game, a strong heartbeat is what matters most. But by all means, get another scan to clear your mind 🙂

Different place, different equipment, different measurement. An embryo can’t shrink in size, that’s impossible. That’s a great strong heartbeat, there’s nothing to worry about 😀

Sounds like maybe they wrote a 6 instead of an 8.  Probably a silly mistake. FX!
