Pregnancy dating scan wrong
Mine are always a week behind from my dates, and i can pinpoint when we were trying, ovulating ect because all my pregnancies have been planned. I have given up trying to make rhyme or reason out of it all!mmmm thats quite a bit out isnt it i had a scan at my drs i was 8 1 and he said 8 5 although i know when i ovulated but we are still going by my lmp! but at least ur still preggers nicole xx When I went for my dating scan I thought I was 7 weeks and the size of the baby was 5.5!Nearly all scans after 10 weeks can be done through your tummy, and most units ask you to come with a full bladder.The sonographer will put some gel on your tummy and will move a small hand-held device (a transducer) over your skin to get views of your baby.The lady said not to completely disregard my dates as my baby may just be small.I had more bloods done and they came back at 64000 this week which puts me between 8-9 weeks which means my first thoughts were right!! Same thing with me - convinced I was 7 weeks but scan showed almost nothing, just a sac so was told only 5 weeks but even that was uncertain. Very frustrating but been told to sit tight for a few weeks & have another scan to get a more accurate date !!!However, some major problems can be seen at your dating scan, such as problems with your abdominal wall or with your baby's skull.
It's amazing to see the little blob with a heartbeat that will soon become your baby.This is because blood tests for Down syndrome are not very accurate if you are having more than one baby.Instead, you will be offered a nuchal translucency (NT) scan.I don't know, it seems a big discrepancy but if it has progressed it should be fine and heart beat is only around 6 weeks so if they are not concerned it sounds ok.
I have always found dates and scans very confusing.You probably know when your LMP was, but not when you actually conceived.
