Addition to my question above...
I also meant to add that I have had no bleeding, cramps, etc. I have had pregnancy symptoms (consipation, headaches, skin breakout, sore and growing breasts, etc) other than NO nausea. I feel fine, other than my emotions. Any advise is helpful
I am not an expert, but you have a baby with a heartbeat...I've seen many posts where measurments were off -- could just be the way the tech or doc did it. And, it is so early in your pregnancy to be so definitive, especially with a strong hb.
As long as you are having no symptoms of m/c, I would continue to be monitored (HCG levels and U/S) until something is definitive -- either way.
Doctors can be wrong, HCG levels don't always double in the "normal" time, US can be inaccurate especially in the early weeks.
That being said, remember there is always a risk of m/c in any pregnancy and I imagine a specialist sees it more than a reg. ob, so perhaps they are a bit more skeptical.
Stay positive, pray and continue to monitor your progression. I wish you the best!
definitely stay positive until there's a reason not to. my HCG levels doubled in the beginning then only doubled every 6 days, yet things worked out.
Sounds like good news to me. Please keep us posted. Prayers to you for a healthy nine months and a perfect baby.
I wouldn't worry about the measurements at this time...it's common this early to be off a bit....with a strong and healthy hb....I'm so happy for you
My DD was supposedly measuring small late in my pregnancy...at 34 weeks or something like that...well I had a 8.2lb baby...not small to me...my privates didn't think she was small either...LOL
Anyway...don't worry about it....be glad you saw the hb....what a trooper you have in there..
GOOD LUCK AND MAY GOD WATCH OVER YOU.
The measurements do not matter. They are barely off.
My last baby I had a sono at 9 weeks. The baby measured a week behind and the sac measured several weeks behind. I was also told I would prob miscarry. I never had hcg's drawn so I don't know how they were going up.
I went on and carried a healthy baby girl. No problems at all.
I wouldn't worry yet. I swear they like to scare us for no reason sometimes. I worried myself sick for no reason.
