Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

I had posted last month about the girl that is saying she is having my son's baby......He told her he wanted to go with her for her ultrasound but she went without him.....She gave him a copy of the picture and when we were looking at it, we didn't see a date of how far along she is.It did have the baby's weight in centimeters though.....there were some numbers with letters and we are not sure if that means how many weeks she is.This is so important because there is alot of doubt whether it is his or not...It is too bad that we have to wait 9 months till we know for sure. He really wanted to go with her so he could find out the pregnancy date but she didn't give him the chance...We know that won't prove whether or not he is the father but it will give him some idea of when she did conceive...There was the number 17 on the film......but he thinks she is 19 weeks right now...can you help us find out? Thanks ....bride527

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

I'm not sure if this will help, but when you are 19 weeks pregnant, you're baby is only 17 weeks, because you usually ovulate about 2 weeks after the first day of your last period. So if he is calculating by her menstrual period, the number 17 might correspond with the age of the baby. I don't know what the numbers actually mean, so it could be something completely different then the baby's age. Good Luck!

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

I have 4 U/S sound pictures starting from 7 weeks to 21 weeks and none of them show how many weeks the baby is. Also my last one the baby is measuring a week ahead and I know the exact day we did the deed. When you have been trying for 4 1/2 years you know the exact dates. So my point is you can't always go by the U/S because it measures the baby and sometimes you can just have a small baby or a big baby.

Good luck

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

If the date is right it was 17 weeks ago, we thought you add two weeks onto the date of conception? But anyway it does say 16.4CM on the ultrasound.Does that seem like a big baby? for 17 or 19 weeks????????
Any info will help.....We just wish he could have been there for the ultrasound........thanks to all her reply........bride 527

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture


Bless your hearts! What a difficult situation for all.


These are, of course, averages:

Gestational age Length (US) Weight (US) Length (cm) Mass (g)
(crown to rump) (crown to rump)
8 weeks 0.63 inch 0.04 ounce 1.6 cm 1 gram
9 weeks 0.90 inch 0.07 ounce 2.3 cm 2 grams
10 weeks 1.22 inch 0.14 ounce 3.1 cm 4 grams
11 weeks 1.61 inch 0.25 ounce 4.1 cm 7 grams
12 weeks 2.13 inches 0.49 ounce 5.4 cm 14 grams
13 weeks 2.91 inches 0.81 ounce 7.4 cm 23 grams
14 weeks 3.42 inches 1.52 ounce 8.7 cm 43 grams
15 weeks 3.98 inches 2.47 ounces 10.1 cm 70 grams
16 weeks 4.57 inches 3.53 ounces 11.6 cm 100 grams
17 weeks 5.12 inches 4.94 ounces 13 cm 140 grams
18 weeks 5.59 inches 6.70 ounces 14.2 cm 190 grams
19 weeks 6.02 inches 8.47 ounces 15.3 cm 240 grams
20 weeks 6.46 inches 10.58 ounces 16.4 cm 300 grams


Hope this helps by closely matching some numbers on the U/S picture.

Wishing you well - Barbara

p.s. When I saw this post, all the numbers [removed] longer properly spaced (like I had them) for some reason. When you read it, pretend the 5 columns are again properly spaced and aligned under the proper headings.

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

My SIL had her first scan in what was supposed to be her 12th week, but the scan revealed that she was only 10 weeks at the time. On her picture it says 10.0cm. If she is only 10 weeks then there is no way that the baby measures 10cm, we thought it might have something to do with how many weeks she is. We still dont know what it means. The only way you will know for sure if the baby is your sons is to wait untill the baby is born and do a dna test.

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

He definitely will be getting a DNA done after the baby is born. But it is unfortunate that we all have to be on this emotional roller coster for 9 months. Not knowing for sure, but I guess we will know soon enough and at least he will know for sure......He is thinking she may have already been pregnant when they "got together" that is why the age of the fetus is so important. Again, we know for sure that the ultrasound said 16.4 CM.....but that doesn't really tell us much......I appreciate all the replies, this is such a trying time for all concerned. Bride527

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

This must be very hard on you and your family, as well as for the woman involved. I'm curious, if after the baby is born, dna tests reveal that your son IS the father, what are his plans? Will they be married? Try living together? Or will he just be responsible for some financial assistance? I only ask because it seems like your family will spnd the next nine months keeping this woman at arm's length, and if does turn out to be your son's child won't there be some tension between the mother and your family?

What a difficult situation for everyone! Good luck getting through all this- my thoughts are with you!

Re: Week of Pregnancy on Ultrasound Picture

No they are not getting married and won't be living together. It was a one night stand....(stupid but the truth)........Yes we are definitely at arms length with this girl.....We can't get close to her till we know for sure......We know that we have to be careful what we say and do because if this child is his, i know i will want to be a part of his/her life...My son is planning on taking financial responsbility if it is his child...It is amazing how one careless night can change everyone's life forever..As far as I am concerned, neither one of them used their heads that night and now they have to face up to the consequences.....She having a baby with someone she doesn't even know and the same for him.....I know we will get throught this together , we are a very close family and there is alot of love . And alot of love to give this baby too.......
It is just the waiting that is so hard for all of us.......bride527
