Fetal Pole One Week Behind

I had an US at 6w6d and I was able to see the yolk sac, the fetal pole and the heartbeat at 120 bmp!!! My question is that the fetal pole was measuring 5w6d (one week behind) should I be concerned with this? Your attention is appreciated

If the doctor didnt seem concerned then you shouldnt.. it is common for fetuses to measure between 4-7 days off ... it all depends when u actually concieved.. you may think u concieved on day but really concieved another since sperm lives in you for about 7 days after UPS... relax! enjoy ur pregnancy!!!

Even with IVF sometimes implantation takes longer and sometimes we have slow growers! I hope that everything turns out well for you and your beanie!
