If you are quite sure when you ovulated then completely ignore your LMP dates.
My first pregnancy I had just come off the pill and must not have ovulated until about 7 weeks after my last witdrawl bleed, so went for a dating scan thinking I was about 9 weeks only to be told they could see nothing. (I didn't realise how sensitive new HPTs were, my mum had been in my ear about HPTs never going positive until she was 3 months along with us.) All sorts of stress about ectopic and two scans later a sac measuring 4+5 could finally be seen, then a week later measuring 5+6 with a heartbeat visible. I was shocked that at my hospital booking appointment they still wanted my LMP despite the fact that it in no way related to my gestation.
For my other pregnancies I knew when I ovulated, and it was always around CD 20, so I just told them my LMP was later than it actually was (yes, I lied). That way there was never any confusion as it seems some health professionals insist on going by LMP and don't seem to believe that a woman can actually know when she ovulates.
So if you are 4+2 then it is too early to see anything but a corpus luteum (tick) and a thickened uterine lining (tick). The fact that there is no mention of fluid or swelling in your tubes is good. Hopefully a scan in a week will show a sac in the right place, then another scan a week or so later will show a heartbeat!
I did use one of those clearblues with conception indicators yesterday, last Monday it said 1-2, and yesterday it also said 1-2....so that makes me a bit concerned about levels not increasing but all these other posts are helping a lot
Even corrected for your late ovulation id be expecting to see a sac by this stage too. Sorry hun I hope you get some definite answers soon xx are you having your bloods repeated?
P.S. The bit where the report says "no adnexal mass or free fluid" means they looked at your tubes for an ectopic
She told me if my results tomorrow are under 1000 then she will wait before sending me for another ultrasound as you generally don't see anything with hcg under 1000.....I felt like yelling 'so why did you send me for one with a hcg of 45?!'
Had bloods taken on Monday, got results today and it has gone from 45 last Wednesday to 220. So a doubling time of 50 hours....still seems so low to me
Sounds good to me!!
50 hours is great
