    Default LMP & Dating Scan differences

    So went for a dating scan yesterday. According to LMP would be 7w 4d. Dating scan put it back to 5w 1d saw nothing but a sac.

    Ultrasound tech wasnt overly helpful and only spent a grand total of less than 10 minutes with us.

    My last AF was 6 days earlier than expected, and my cycles are around 28-31 days on average.

    When i look at the possible conception dates either would work, but would mean I got a + test around the same time as conception.

    Should i worry

    I would go to gp to discuss and organize another scan in a week

    I had a similar experience back in April. It didn't end well for me, but the sonographer had told me to prepare for it to go either way. He sent me off to get more bloods and I came back a week later for another scan. While my bloods were still rising (though not doubling), my follow up scan showed there was no heartbeat and the baby measured 5w still (same as previous week). I should have been 8/9 weeks by that point. Bhcg was rising because the placenta was still forming.

    I hope you end up with a more positive experience than I had, but if I were in your shoes I would be requesting a follow up scan next week. The week of waiting for me was hell I do hope you get a good result x

    Having prepared for the worst we got the best possible outcome. Just turns out my dates were off and now we have a nice healthy ultrasound with dates in the middle of the previous two
