Re: Worried after first appt
Was there a healthy heartbeat? That's the biggest battle right there!
Once you see the heartbeat, the likelihood of losing the baby decreases dramatically.
And then it goes way way down again once you hit 12 wks.
So, hang in there.
One week is really not THAT much to be off. You could have just mis-calculated your ovulation date. Or, your baby is developing slightly slower than "average". Or your bean implanted later.
There's any number of things that could have happened, and nearly all of them don't include losing your baby.
big hugs to you mama. Try to enjoy this exciting time!!
ETA: most mamas don't even see their babies until the 20 wk anatomy scan. So they wouldn't even know if their babies were on track or not early on in their pregnancies.
