Counting from the first day of your last period, which is of course the usual way doctors count, you're 7 weeks today. If the person doing the ultrasound (was it a doctor?) said you are 5-6 weeks pregnant, possibly you ovulated late in your cycle, or maybe she was telling you a date based on presumed conception, rather than using the medical method of dating pregnancy. If this was a doctor talking to you, it would surprise me that she wouldn't count the medical way.
My midwife and doctor both said the same but the scan women said I was 5-6 weeks but my period was due 3rd July which made me 6 weeks 6 days as my cycle is 28 but I don't understand I thought the heart starts beating at 6 weeks and I seen it beat
