    I wouldn't worry about your calculations being 2 days out from the scan. That's pretty close. Btw - tracking periods is good but when it come to how 'old' a baby is, forget periods and go by ovulation. Some women ovulate halfway between periods, some women a bit earlier or a bit later.

    A few days out here or there is totally normal. We're you tracking your cycles? You can't pinpoint ovulation to an exact time really unless you were doing a monitored cycle. Being 6w3d when you thought you were 6w5d is neither here nor there, it doesn't even mean you ovulated late necessarily.
