I'm after a bit of advice or knowledge regarding the ultrasound I had today.
First let me give a bit of a background... My first pregnancy had quite rare circumstances. After being admitted to hospital in agonising pain it was found I was pregnant with twins, only one was in my uterus and one was an ectopic in my tube. The tube had ruptured and was removed, and I also have a healthy 6 year old daughter from that pregnancy.
So now I am pregnant again and obviously worried about more complications. I was sent today for an early scan to rule out another ectopic.
By my dates I put myself at 6 weeks, 2 days. My LMP was 24th December and according to the app I use I should have ovulated around the 7th January. DH and I have been trying to conceive for around 8 months and for my last cycle had somewhat 'given up' or were having a bit of a break from trying to conceive. We 'did the deed' (sorry tmi) only two times within that cycle, 31st December and 8th January. So looking at that we would think I conceived from that time on the 8th yes?
So in my scan today they said they really couldn't see much. From the external scan they said I must be very early, and based on the size of the sac I would be only 5 weeks 1 day. With the internal scan they changed that to 5 weeks 3 days and said they could see a heartbeat?
So this would put me as conceiving around 3 weeks ago in theory? Which based on what I have said above, would be basically impossible. Also I thought a heartbeat could only be seen after 6 weeks? I'm feeling really confused and a little defeated. I thought I'd be ecstatic to see it wasn't an ectopic but I still don't be good about this.
So I'm just wondering if anyone can give me some insight and clarification on this and help me understand it? What could make me, in a sense, a week behind? Am I just worrying too much? Any advice to save me from going crazy would be MUCH appreciated!!!
Oh I should also add that I have little to no symptoms. From around the time I found out I was pregnant I had b00bies that were absolute agony, I could have cried if anything touched them. But that has gone away in the last few days. I get some twinges and pinches and some aching in my abdomen, but other than that, nothing.
