Just got back from our first prenatal appointment! We got to hear the baby’s heartbeat (136 beats per minute!!!) and see him/her. However, I thought I was 7.5 weeks along but it turns out I’m only 6 weeks 5 days along. The doctor thinks since it was my first month off birth control my ovulation was off a few days. Everything else looks good she said. Of course now I’m nervous something is wrong with the baby even though the Dr. said things are fine. Anyone else been through this?

@Bee27: I don’t go to the doctor until June 4 but I’ve been so nervous since finding out a few days ago that we are expecting. The baby is just SO SMALL now it makes me nervous!
Happy and healthy 9 months to you!

@Bee27: Congrats! I’m not an expert but I do think that just coming off bc can delay your period/ovulation. Based on my last period, I was 8w5d at my last appt, but based on how the baby was measuring, I was 8w. I know that my period was not a 28 day cycle and I know that I ovulated later based on my charting, so the dating made sense to me. Happy and healthy 9 months!

@Bee27: i had my first appointment today too ! i thought i was 9 weeks and turns out i am 11. if the doctor went from my last period i would be about 14 weeks. but thats not the case. which is good because i was in the hospital and they had my take a pregnancy test and it came back negative so i had a CT scan. but the nurse said that if the CT scan would have done anything i would miscarry or already would have. but everything went great today. due date 12-11-12.
