I was gonna guess the same as Ruth..... I bled for a week @5-6 weeks pregnant, so I'm thinking that May 20th wasn't AF at all??

Good luck and Congratulations!!!!!

Congrats! Those are great numbers! The timing is certainly wonky, no matter what way you look at it.

I think there are a couple of possibilities. The first is that you ovulated directly after your period. My sister did that, which is why they were a little surprised by their first child, haha!

Another is that you were actually pregnant last cycle and bled anyway. That happens more often than most of us realize.

The third is that you may have ovulated just before your period, when you had that spotting.

I would think the most likely to be that you ovulated right at the end of AF. One thing that happens as our systems start winding down is that things start to go a little wonky, including ovulating at funny times or not at all. The u/s will certainly give you a better idea. And once you have an EDD, then just change your LMP to what it should have been for their calculations. When I was on fertility meds years ago that is what I had to do or the dates would be off by 2 weeks or more!!!

A beta of 107 sounds like 14dpo, and most likely was between 12dpo and 16dpo. I suspect you either ovulated early, or the light bleeding you has was not AF at all but spotting, and you actually ovulated very late that cycle (meaning you didn't ovulate the previous cycle when you thought)
