Has anyone had experience with a dating scan being wrong? And I don't mean a day or two, more like a week.
This is what has happened. Although I don't have regular 28 day cycles, I do chart and watch my cervical mucous and record when we baby dance. I also often feel pain when I ovulated for. Couple of hours.
My last cycle, I predicted I ovulated on day 20 - I had ovulation pain, it was also my last day of stretchy mucous and it was also the last day we baby danced. So that would make my due date (I got pregnant) 31 march.
I had a dating scan today and dates showed as 6 weeks 3 days, whereas my dates show 7 weeks 1 day.
I am questioning whether the the dating scan is actually correct because according to dating scan -
- it could possibly mean sperm was living inside for 6 days (that's a while) before fertilization
- my cervical mucous was well and truly sticky and non existent around the dating scan ovulation date -day 26
- the other big thing is I got a positive pregnancy test at 3 weeks according to dating scan. I don't even know if that is possible! It would have had to implant then send out the hormone to be picked up...?
What do you think? Should I change my dates? Should I get a repeat scan later on? Should I just stick to my own dates?
This is my 3rd child and I've had dating scans for all my babies, and the others lined up with my own dates (by charting).
