According to all the baby calculations and the receptionist at the dr’s office, I called on the day I found out I was pregnant..and she told me I was 5.5 weeks..making today 7.5 weeks… I knew this was probably a little off because my cycles arent totally regular…
Fast forward to today. I told my doctor about my cycles and she put me at about 6 weeks pregnant but ordered an early ultrasound to be sure…which put me at about 5 weeks pregnant….
SO in one hour I went from being more than halfway done with my first tri-mester to only being 5 weeks. haha. So frustrating I guess that it’s almost amusing.
Good news is they want me back for another ultrasound in 10 days so that will be fun 🙂

Your LMP is not always accurate to predict a due date because some women do not have normal 28 day cycles & ovulate later. For that reason, a dating ultrasound is more accurate to determine how far along you are. I know that can be frustrating, thinking you are further along than you really are, but it happems. Good luck! Congrats on the pregnancy!

@Rose120: so annoying! I remember I was the opposite. They moved my EDD from 10/19 to 10/12 after my anatomy scan so I moved up a week.
Have fun at your u/s in 10 days!

The exact same thing happened to me. After my dating us they told me i was only 6 weeks and i thought i was 7.5 weeks so I was soo annoyed that I had to do that week over again but it went so fast that i didnt even have time to think about it. Before you know it, you will be in your third trimester and almost done! 🙂

I have to say it’s sort of a relief to see this is normal! I went in today because I had light brown spotting this morning (which hasn’t happened since first wipe) and they measured my blood levels and those were good and then did an u/s to check in on the little pea (or so i thought) and they said instead of the 6 weeks 1 day I thought, the gestational sack was measuring 5 weeks 3 days! i’ve been in a panic since so it’s good to see that this can just happen 🙂
