The ultrasound was done at the hospital the 1st time and at the off site medical center this time..the tech said everything looked good and my ob/ would get the report in a few days..the 4 chambers were seen and the heart is fine..
If the u/s were done at two different sites then I wouldn't worry too much since it was two different machines doing the measuring. That is not to say that it is wrong and your baby is not measuring 5 days behind, just to say that there could be room for error there. If there was anything to worry about, I am sure that the tech woudl have made sure that your dr got the report alot sooner than a few days. HOwever, I strongly beleive that if you are worried you should never hesitate to call your OB youself and discuss it with him/her. Just tell them what you noticed at the ultrasound and ask if you should be concerned.
I agree with Kassimom. My OB has told me a date range of 7 days that you have where u/s's can be off and especially if they were done at different places. I wouldn't worry, but if you're like me, call your OB and talk with them about it! And congratualtions!!!! How exciting!!!! When is your due date?
