It could just mean your cycle was a bit longer this month.  I went in at what I thought was close to 9 weeks and after the ultrasound they dated me at just over 7 weeks.  When I had my 20 week ultrasound she was growing on track with how she should be growing if I was 7 weeks at the first ultrasound so all has been fine.  They didn’t seem too worried during the first ultrasound, just said oh you must have ovulated later.  I didn’t have bleeding during pregnancy but I know other ladies have, you might want to ease up on the running or talk to your doctor a bit and do some less impact exercise until it stops.

For the record, the doctors go by the first day of your LMP (last menstrual period).  Then estimate when you ovulated by a forumla.  Most people ovulate around day 14 (I think).  THAT is what they go by.  

They had my daughter’s date off by a week or more.  She was a preemie and there was an argument about her being 4 weeks or 5 weeks premature due to the fact that the dr’s date said one thing, and the fact she had no eyebrows, eyelashes, or hair pointed towards a different date.  (They also got my son’s date wrong… but he was a week LATE, the little brat, 😉 lol)

So, yes, you could be 9 weeks or you could be around 4 weeks.  Without knowing exactly when you ovulated, it’s impossible to tell.  Unfortunately.  Doctors are not infallable, especially when it comes to the human body. 

Hope things clear up and everything goes smoothly for you from here on out!!!  and congrats!!!!!!!
