Re: Baby measuring 2 wks behind :(

Based on LMP I was supposed to be 7 weeks at my first ultrasound where I measured exactly 6 with no heartbeat, and then 2 weeks later I measured 7w3d with a healthy heartbeat. I had just stopped charting but tended to O around CD19/CD20 so I could explain it.

Even with an exact conception date babies can take a week or more to finally implant and start producing hormones. It could explain the difference. Not that it will, but it may. The best answer will come from another ultrasound in 2 weeks. If the growth is appropriate (around 8 weeks) then everything should be okay. In the maentime I'll be praying for you and your baby and hoping for the best
