As of right now the dates could be off, it is hard to get an exact measurement at that stage from what my dr told me. They did see a heartbeat so thats a good thing. I would get another opinion. Did they say it was a miscarriage? Lots of prayers!

If they saw a heartbeat then this would be a good sign and as mommyoftwo has said it could just be that your dates are a bit off.  It is quite common for our LMP date and the US date to be different by up to 2 weeks.  With all of my pregnancies I was given a due date 2 weeks later than that given by my LMP (last menstrual period).

Don't give up hope just yet.
