Ghost & Others: How common is measuring a few days behind?

Postby EJ7997 » Sun Apr 08, 2012 9:40 pm

I am 6 weeks 3 days pregnant after a FET of 3 day embryos. My ultrasound revealed two sacs one measuring 6 weeks with heart rate of 134 and the other measuring 5 weeks 6 days with a heart rate of 98. So they are measuring only 1 day apart which I feel is normal but measuring 3 and 4 days behind considering I am suppose to be 6 weeks 3 days pregnant. My Dr seemed pleased and said measuring behind is common and nothing to worry about. My RE's office tends to 'sugarcoat' everything so I am coming here to get an honest second opinion. I understand this is a waiting game and we just need to wait and see... but if you have any other expert advise, thoughts on the matter, or experiences to share please reply. Thanks!

first of all congrats on seeing 2 heart beats...!

i was always measuring 3-5 days behind during my initial scans and i use to freak out and ask this same question in this board.. got many reassuring replies during that time. i think it is quite normal for the measurement to be a little off sometimes. but we ivf-ers never stop worrying...

i kept worrying for a long time.. but now i am breathing a little easy now that i started feeling our lil guy move..

good luck for a safe pregnancy..

Congratulations on the two heart beats!

It's pretty common to be a little behind the norms. Yes, it would be better if they were a little bigger. Like you said, it's a "wait and see". That is unfortunately very common, too. The two heartbeats are right on track with their measurements, by the way.

Try not to worry over it.
