    Default bit confused here

    I had my last period on the 19th Feb, and have found out i'm pregnant.... but when I went for a scan the other day, the ob told me im only measuring 6.1 weeks.. how is this possible, when my period was so far back? im supposed to be 9.6 weeks, nearly 10! how can there be such a difference? I can understand being the two weeks either side, but nearly 4?

    Yeah it can be because you ovulated later than usual. How long are your cycles usually?

    I definately don't think I ovulated later than I thought.... I was sick with the flu and bronchitis and gastro one after the other... and was feeling really tired, and happened to do a pregnancy test about 2 weeks ago... with my first dd, they kept on changing the dates on me for some reason... they kept moving it back and forth by 2-3 weeks... and then with ds I concieved him on my last cycle of clomid, and he came at 36 weeks on the dot, and he weighed in at 3.4kg's... and everybody kept saying it's''' impossible'' that he was only 36 weeks at that weight, and that i would have been a month ahead... i don't understand how, when i was on clomid and was monitored... but this time, it just happened naturally... (definately wasn't trying)

    usually im 28-30 days cycle wise... but ob said to go back again in 2 weeks... for another scan... see how we go. i just feel slightly horrified, this morning sickness (all day sickness more like) is killing me! i can't stand it, it's so hard when you have 2 under 3.5 to look after... and i think what upset me more was that i thought i was more ahead weeks wise, and to be told im not and have this sickness feeling drag out longer, seems like everything is going to drag. 2nd trimester feels FOREVER away.

    I had a similar thing happen yesterday and my OB is sending me off to have some more blood tests... today and tomorrow as well as another scan.

    I was on the pill... and when my period didnt arrive after 3 days after it was supposed to I tested and got a BFP... I am certain about my dates because I was on the pill. Hoping my blood and new scan match up.

    My dates were all out of wack due to IUI, when i went into ob/gyn i thought i would be about 6 weeks along but turns out i was only 4... Still think i was right but will see when little man arrives in a few weeks
