Yesterday I had my first u/s appointment and it was…worrisome. We saw the baby’s heartbeat, but it is measuring 6 weeks, 3 days and I am 7 weeks, 0 days. I know people say the measurements can be off because of ovulation date, etc., but I KNOW when I ovulated and the conception date was confirmed by the two HCG blood tests at the beginning of the pregnancy. So…the baby should have measured 7 weeks, 0 days. This is how Will’s pregnancy looked at our first u/s as well. I am going back in two weeks (Monday, Feb 11th ) for a follow-up u/s to check for the baby’s growth. I was really hoping I’d feel better after this u/s, but I still feel like I am holding my breath, maybe even more now…..Nothing I can do, but wait and pray!
With Will's pregnancy, he measured behind by about 4 days at the 8 week u/s and then by 5 days at the 9 1/2 week u/s. At my 12 week nuchal fold scan, we found out he had Trisomy 18 and he passed away at 14 weeks. After all this happened, I read that babies with trisomy often are small on their dating sonograms. I'm so terrified that I am starting down the same path again...
