Behind in dates - a question for you ladies

Postby mamabear1 » Thu Jul 24, 2014 9:36 pm

Hi everyone,
I hope you don't mind me jumping in here to ask this question. I just thought you ladies might have an answer to my question since you're in your 2nd trimester.

By my calculations I am 7wks 2days today. I charted while TTC and did OPK's, temps etc so I am pretty confident on my dates. However, I had my dating scan the other day which put me 6days behind in my dates. (At the time of that scan I was 6wks 3 days by my dates - Dr put me at 5wks 2 days). Dr said my cycle might have been longer or I ovulated later. I just don't see how that could be as we didn't BD anywhere near the time scale he's suggesting.

Coupled with this, baby had a heart rate of 98 bpm at that first scan. At my 2nd scan 4days later it was "about 100" Dr said and baby had grown in line with the Dr's dates. There was also a bleed next to the gestational sac which my Google research tells me is a Subchorionic Hematoma. Dr told me it was bleeding from implantation and that he's not worried about it.

Also my progesterone has been low so I have been on increasing doses daily (currently on 300mg)

So, I am freaking out because of all the above. In my first pregnancy baby measured behind several days and it ended in miscarriage.
I have no cramping or spotting but I have no pregnancy symptoms either other than tiredness.

I know it's really early days, but I'm wondering if any of you have had experiences similar to this? I would really appreciate it if you could share what the outcome was. I am so worried that this pregnancy will end for me in the next few weeks.

Thank you all for reading and I wish you all the best in this next stage of you pregnancy.

Firstly congratulation on your pregnancy!! I understand how worrying this time can be especially if you have experienced loss before.
All I have to offer is that there are a number of reasons you Could be measuring behind at this stage of your pregnancy. You need to remember that mm makes a difference in days at this stage. My OBGYN has always stated scans can be out between 4-6 days early on. You may have also implanted late. So O'd when you thought but it just took a little longer for your bean to get comfy :)

The main thing I would take out of your story is that the dr is happy with the growth you have have between scans and that you aren't cramping or bleeding red blood. These are all positive signs.

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy :)

Thanks Lany for replying. I know I'm worrying too much....I just have to be patient and take one day at a time. I'm just not convinced my ob is happy with growth etc. He's a bit non-committal but I know he's happy I'm not cramping or bleeding.

I hope your pregnancy is going well.

Just for the benefit of anyone who comes across this post in the future - I lost the baby. No heartbeat was found at 7wks 2days (the adjusted date) or 8wks1day by my LMP.
