Sorry, dating scan 2 weeks off this
Posted in Dating
Sadly, I had a rough estimate of how far along I was by conception date. When you do it once a month it makes it easier to remember, apparently. My ultrasound showed 5 wks, 6 days with a heartbeat of I know that conception date isn't accurate because it could be up to 5 days later than the date you did the deed. Anyone else have a similar experience with a good outcome? I have a history of miscarriages so I can't help but think this is a bad sign. I called the doctor this morning and talked his nurse.
A dating scan on july 14th though found the baby to be due march 11 which would have been 2 weeks later than Id thought. The EDD from the early dating scan is used - if the last menstrual period is not known or is unreliable, or the dating scan differs from the last menstrual period dating by more than 5 days. As the baby gets bigger, it starts to express its individual growth potential. The size of the baby correlates less and less with its age as time goes on. Same thing happened to me, I should be 10 weeks 5 days going on 11 weeks, and I was pushed back a week, now 9 weeks 5 days. Im still a little confused about my due date. It went from the 12th or 19th to the 20th.A I always marked my periods on the calendar to keep track, and doctor told me that instead of me getting my last period on 9/5/
Dating and viability What is a dating scan? Dating scans also reveal other important information such as: the number of fetuses and gestation sacs the presence of a heart beat the size of the fetus, from which the gestational age is estimated unusual features of the uterus such as the shape or the presence of fibroids How is it done?
For transvaginal ultrasound you can have an empty bladder When is it recommended? For example if you do not know when the first day of your last period, or the likely day of conception was have had irregular periods have had an unusual cycle because you recently stopped the oral contraceptive pill, or you recently had a miscarriage, or you are breast-feeding had some implantation bleeding which can be been confused with your last period date What can be seen?
This is presuming that the pregnancy is actually at this stage of development. Sometimes a trans-vaginal examination shows that your pregnancy is less advanced than expected. How accurate is the ultrasound examination? The earlier the ultrasound is done, the more accurate it is at estimating the baby's due date. Also the fetus cannot bend and twist too much yet, so the length of the body is fairly constant.

The scan or my dates - which should I believe? As the baby gets bigger, it starts to express its individual growth potential. The size of the baby correlates less and less with its age as time goes on.
We to said we didn't want the NT screening. All was perfect.
You can't see as much as you would at 12 weeks but the lady said to us that baby is very strong bang on dates and size so we could tell everyone as its unlikely anything would happen. We told everyone and it was a massive weight off our minds. Hope your scan goes well xxx.

If your first ultrasound gives you a due date that is more than weeks away from what was expected, there is a good chance that everything is still fine. You may have simply conceived earlier or later than you thought you did (which can happen if your cycle is at all irregular or if you remembered your last menstrual period date incorrectly).Author: Krissi Danielsson.

I do not understand this I guess maybe if you weren't keeping track of your periods and had guessed on a date, but for those of you who knew when you started your LMP and they told you you were wrong?! I knew mine for sure and I would be so upset if this happened to me.
Mar 27, "My due date got put back by 2 weeks at the 12 week scan. Original date given was 18 December but at the scan it was moved to 31 Dec. It just doesn't quite add up by my reckoning of when I think I ovulated and when I know we did the deed!" "I had an early scan at 8 weeks Author: Rachel Mostyn. My LMP was also 20th Mar so I had EDD 25th dec but my dating scan was 6 days behind so new EDD is 31st Dec. I asked the sonographer if that sort of difference is usual and she asked if I had been on the pill, I came off in Jan and she mentioned its common for the ovulation to be delayed and dates different. But two weeks is a fair bit more. Dates were off by a good 2 weeks but then she was born weeks early. between baby 1 and 2 they were regular but only had a couple cycles before we got pregnant. baby #2 dating was off by 4 weeks. Baby come 1 week early and pregnancy and baby were great.
The other thing is, why is the ultrasound measurement the main factor in determining gestational age? Isn't there some level of variability? Not all babies are born weighing and measuring the same, so they shouldn't be expected to be exactly the same size on day 56 for example of a day pregnancy.
Ugh, I'm so frustrated for all of you. I would get a second opinion, but maybe that's my own crazy hormones talking. Ha ha!
