Maybe someone can help me out lol I suck at math but I used a couple caculators trying to find out when I concieved. I thought I had all my dates on track, when I ovulated and when I could test blah blah blah. So I got my BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) Aug. 7 and my LMP was July 14th and i went for my first U/S (ultrasound) on Sep 10 and measured at 6 weeks 3 days. I'm currently 7 weeks. But that would mean by estimate I concieved around Aug 9th which makes no sense. Cause I tested August 7th...what am I mixing up here...I literally spotted the day I ovulated and had cramping as well. And then took my first test 8dpo on Aug.7
Re: Something isn't adding up
Sometimes you could be off several days, and sometimes the early scans show a slower developing fetus. Either is possible, and as long as your doctor isn't worried, you probably shouldn't be either. Good luck!

Also you may want to either change your SN or crop that pic, because right now i know your full name, your birthdate, and that you live in the Bay Area. I am willing to bet that i could find you on social media by googling you in under 10 minutes, so you should probably lock that down, because internet strangers can be crazy.

TLDR (short version)- as PPs have said- dates make sense within the realm of possibility. (According to this non-medically trained, yet well-read amateur ) You're measuring smaller- could be normal, could not be. Best to let your Dr know of your concerns and discuss with them.
Longer more detailed version:
According to your LMP- at the time of your +test you dated 3w3d pregnant. (Drs use LMP for dating because it's almost impossible to know when conception actually takes place.) So at your US, you would have been 7w+6 if you go with LMP dating. You measured 6W+3. There's a variety of reasons why you measured smaller. Later implantation = smaller embryo on US. Maybe the growth rate is a little off. Maybe the measurement done by the US tech was off (I don't know the margin of error associated with US measurements.) Maybe it's a combo of several factors. **TW** Or maybe- it's an non-viable embryo End TW**
Did they detect a heartbeat? Did they mention they were concerned about size? Did your Dr ask for a follow up US to see if the embryo is growing? Or were they not concerned? As pp have said, if it didn't bother your healthcare professionals, it's probably not worth worrying about at this point. Measurements can be off- EDD is only an estimation- not an exact science. No one here can substitute for a trained medical professional working on your specific case. If you are concerned, I would contact your OB's office.
