Congrats on an ultrasound! As for the measuring small, I think that means as little is those stupid growth charts. I found during my last preg. ppl would measure small, then big and it would change throughout the pregnancy. I bet your baby will have a growth spurt in a day or so. Plus all babies are different sizes like all people all different sizes. And if you implanted later than you thought it could effect the size.

yay for ultrasound!! i hate when they say measuring small!! Both of my DDs are on the small side and i keep hearing it at all the drs. i have a heathly 5 year old who barely weighs 40 lbs so i really despise the growth charts, for pregnancy or for kids. you could have a growth spurt in a few days and then baby measures big then small again. so as long as baby is healthy and nothing is abnormal i think it is all ok!

I think their dates can always be a little funny. They told me today that I am 8 weeks, 1 day, but I don't see how that can be if that's technically before my last period. The heartbeat was the big deal for me too. Keep us posted about tomorrow!

Your fine. The measurements can be a little off. And yours is just off by a few days. My utrasound measurements were 2 1/2 weeks behind my calendar dates. I was really nervous, but the doctor said it was all just fine. I go back in next week for another U/S.
