    :( I found out that I am pregnant and we are so excited. I went to my dr. today for the first time and they were trying to see how far along I am. From the date of my last cycle I would be 6 1/2 weeks. They decided to do a scan on me to look at the baby. The doctor said from the look of the baby I would only be 5 1/2 weeks. The dr. said it could mean one of two things. One could be that I am just not as far along as they thought and the other could be that the embryo stopped developing and I will miscarry. I go back in 2 weeks for another scan to see whats happening.

    At first when he told me I was sure I was just a week earlier---logically it makes perfect sense. But then I started thinking and so now I am worried :(
    I ovulated a week later than I normally should have and my cycles are often times off by a week so that would make sense. I just pray that everything works out and the baby continues to develop normally. Pray for us please :)

    Oh, hanvan, you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine how worried you are, I'd probably be a wreck. Honestly, though, you probably just ovulated a little later than usual. I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. Keep us updated. :)

    Hi hanvan, I'll be praying for you... If you know you ovulated a week later, you probably don't have anything to worry about! The ovulation date is what really matters, because that's when the baby started developing. :) I'm going to PM you with more info. I had an early u/s last week to make sure things were okay so I understand the worry. I'm sorry you have to wait.

    Hanvan, I will keep you in my prayers. I'm sure it's becaus of your ovulation being at a different time. As advanced as we are technologically, exact due time is still hard to come up with. I will keep you and your little one in my prayers.

    I am going to try and call them to do some blood work. They can test the levels of HCG (I think thats what its called) on one day and retest again a few days later. If the levels are increasing then I am good...if they are flat lining or decreasing then its not good. I can get this done by this week-the not knowing is killing me.

    I called the dr. and they said my counts for Tuesday look really good and that this is very common. So I just need my counts to go up 70% tomorrow and things will be fine.
