Today I went for my first prenatal appointment and now I am so, so confused.
Basically, the baby wasn't measuring where it should be for 8 weeks 4 days. It's measuring more like 5-ish weeks and has a heart rate of 80-86 BPM. The doctor said she saw everything she wanted to see, but it should be a lot further along if I ovulated when I think I did. Oh, and there was also three gestational sacks present. No fetal poles were visible yet, but she said it's still too early if I am 5 weeks. So, there's pretty much 3 different scenarios of what could be going on...
1) I had a weird cycle and I ovulated much later than I usually do, so I'm only 5 weeks along rather than 8 weeks along like my LMP suggests.
2.) I really am 8w4d along and it's not a viable pregnancy.
3.) I am 5 weeks along with multiples, which would explain me getting several positive pregnancy tests so early on due to elevated HCg levels.
She did a full blood panel (should get results tomorrow) and scheduled me to come back in 2 weeks. Basically I either have a baby that isn't growing right, a baby that's growing fine and just isn't as far along as I thought, or 2-3 babies.
Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? My head is spinning with all these crazy possibilities and I am trying to remain positive, but it's hard.
