Hi! I was excited for my u/s Monday and thought I was 7w5d by LMP. Ultrasound showed more like 6w1d and a slow heartbeat. So 10 days different. I don't know when I o'd so this could be possible, but I'm not terribly optimistic. I had an ob appointment today and she was able to look and see the heartbeat with her ultrasound machine although not measure it or tell us much more compared to two days prior. I go for a follow-up u/s in a week. Fingers crossed that baby is/keeps growing and looks fine in a week.
The time moves so slow in the beginning of pregnancy as it is, 'going back' is extra torture.
Anybody else have their dates changed at their first u/s? Looking for positive stories
Otherwise trying to keep busy and enjoy the holiday - Happy Thanksgiving!

I went to my first appointment thinking I was 8+2, but baby only measured 6+4, so my due date was moved back by 12 days. I went on to have a healthy and uneventful pregnancy, and he was born last Tuesday (a week early). I hope it turns out the same for you.
My second pregnancy should have been due 10/16, but my first ultrasound seemed like a late October date was more appropriate. The second ultrasound settled on 10/20 (between the LMP and 1st ultrasound date). Kid showed up two weeks early and looked like an earlier due date would have been correct. I think he was a late implanter.
With my first, my LMP due date (11/15), ovulation due date (11/22), and 1st u/s due date (11/21) spanned a week range. They used the u/s due date as the official one, but I went into labor closest to the least accurate (LMP) due date.
Thanks for all the positive stories - I went into my appointment today hopeful, but unfortunately, our ultrasound today showed no growth and no heartbeat. Missed miscarriage. Trying to figure out my options with my doctor's office and feeling sad. Not a good day.
