My baby is too small

Postby mountainbaby » Tue Mar 18, 2014 7:26 am

I have been TTC for over a year and got lucky last month. Yesterday I went for a private scan at what should have been 8 weeks. However my baby only measured 6 weeks and 4 days. Saw a heart beat but sometimes it was nice and fast and at other times slow. I was panicked but sonographer said I probably got my dates wrong. I know they weren't that wrong though.

Today I started spotting. Hoping it is cervix irritation from tv ultrasound but fearing the worst.

I'm so sorry! I know that this can be so worrisome. Did they schedule another ultrasound in the next week or two? If not, I would get them to schedule one for sooner than later. On the positive side, at lease there was a strong heartbeat sometimes! Maybe your baby was a late implanter and started growing a little late... praying for peace and a healthy baby!
