I had my first ultrasound with my OB's office yesterday. According to my records I should have been 7 weeks 6 days pregnant. The ultrasound technician measured the baby and gestational sac as 5 weeks 6 days. There was a flutter of a heartbeat, but it was too weak to measure, yet (which is normal at 5w6d). The ultrasound technician was very hopeful, but I am not. I had a positive blood test when I was 4 weeks pregnant...I would have to have conceived that day for the baby to measure 5w6d.
I had an emergency room ultrasound when I was 4 weeks 6 days to rule out ectopic pregnancy (I have a history of it and was having discomfort in the right side of my abdomen). The technician there wouldn't let me see the screen or let me talk to the radiologist. After being there for almost 6 hours the ER doctor told me "the baby is in your uterus". I know at 4w6d they're unable to see an actual baby, but I'm assuming they saw a gestational sac. My OB's office was unable to locate these records to compare the info.
Has anyone ever had an early ultrasound measure so far behind and still result in a viable pregnancy?
As far as I know my uterus is not tilted.
