Just wondering if anybody has had something similar to this. I got my very faint bfp at only 9 dpo and we only dtd once so based on this I should be 10+6 today. Suppose if by some miracle I got my bfp at 6 dpo I could be 3 days behind that.
Today I had a private scan with ultrasound direct and the baby measured 9+6. He had a super strong heartbeat and was wiggling around. The sonographer wasn't concerned at all, he said the baby was lying on its side so it was difficult to get a measurement but at most it could be a couple of days more.
I'm just so confused. He was really confident everything is fine and said he would happily tell people if it was him but I can't help but feel worried about it. Am I being crazy?

Sorry don't know what your abbreviations mean.
What I do know is if the sonographer isn't worry you shouldn't be.
Up to 12 weeks development it is apparently easy to see the weekly changes in foetal development. After that it becomes more difficult, so they aren't used for dating after about 22 weeks but to check growth rate.
BTW sperm can live for up to 5 days inside a woman.

i understand you are worried but as the above comment sperm can live several days so even if you bd once the conception might have taken place later on.
also the scans are accurate up to a point. later on if you are measuring off by weeks this might be worrying. just now a week is within limits. if you have another scan right now with the same sonographer all measurements are gonna be different as the wee baby moves and is also tiny.
try to relax!! i was measuring 2 weeks ahead for the head and 2 week behind for femur length in my pregnancy.

Thank you so much for replying. The main reason I am co fused is that I got my positive test at 9 days past ovulation which is already mega early so another week just wouldn't be possible. I had a small bleed yesterday so have been worried, I'm off for another scan tomorrow just to ease my mind . I'm feeling positive just need to know he or she is still going strong. X

I get it now.
So, if the conception happened later you are wondering how could you get a positive test at 9dpo
How did you confirm ovulation?
I had a bleed when pregnant with my now 1 year old son at 4w at 7w and at 9w. So I was doing a lot of scans due to anxiety. baby was measuring differently in each one.
Also you calculate the gestation by last menstrual period, not by conception. When was your last period?
Good that you are having another scan. I'm sure everything will be fine!!
Keep me updated!!

I had a scan early and they said 7 weeks which I thought was a bit off and at my 12 week scan it jumped forward 6 days. They are hard to measure when so small which is why your 12 week scan is your dating scan.
I also had a bleed at 16 weeks and all was good so I'm sure all will be fine and everything crossed for you! 🤞🏻

Hi navi, just back from it now. Everything looks great thank goodness. Baby has grown. Was measuring as 10 weeks 2 days but the lady said it is so curled up, let's right up towards shoulders and was facing us so she said it was hard to measure and always measure a bit smaller when they are facing you. She said development wise she would put him closer to 11 weeks so I feel happy. To be honest I'm just happy he has grown since Tuesday and heart is still beating hard. Feel so much happier than i did after the other one and can't wait to tell our 2 boys tonight x
