1st Ultrasound- small foetal size, OK? Should I worry?
I had my first ultrasound today, after a worrisome start to my first pregnancy…
There has been a lot of spotting, some clots early on, and I even had what I thought was my period about 2 weeks after conception (not implantation bleeding-it went on for 6 days.)
According to my dates, I should be about 8 weeks along (6 from conception). I saw a heartbeat today, but the ultrasound technician told me that the foetus was too small to be 8 weeks – only 1 centimetre (.5 inches) long. The heartbeat was 135. Is this a good sign?
I think my dates are accurate because I have been charting my BBT and the spike was 8 weeks ago and has stayed high since then.
My Dr. thought my HCG was high when I saw her 10 days ago, 20,500….
I’m not sure what to think. The heartbeat was a good sign, the gestational size was a bad sign. Can the foetal growth catch up?
What does this mean? Has anyone else had this experience? What were your results?
I can't see my Dr. for another week. Worry, worry, worry.
Thanks for any advice, or shared stories.
