I had my dating scan today and according to my dates I am 6+3 weeks, however the sonographer said the measurements were "very small" and put me at 5+3 weeks. We DID see a heartbeat, although "slow" according to the sonographer who reassured me this was normal so early on and not necessarily a sign of impending miscarriage.
I am feeling extremely confused, not to mention anxious, as I am SURE of when my last period was, and when this little one was actually conceived - but it does not match the results/dates on the scan! I also know 5+3 weeks is very early to be able to detect a heartbeat (which makes me think I'm further along than the scan suggests).
I know I should just try and relax and go back in a few weeks for a re-scan, but I can't help feeling a little anxious (particularly with the words "very small" being used a few times by the sonographer during the scan!). So now of course I have jumped to the conclusion that something MUST be wrong. Should I just get over it and be thankful I saw a heartbeat?! Has anyone else had a similar experience? What was the outcome?
Thanks for letting me vent!
