February 2013 Moms

already had my 1st sonogram

i thought i was about 10 weeks when i calculated from me last period, but i'm only actually 8 weeks and 3 days by measurement of the baby. . .its weird how i was 2 weeks off :( i was actually hoping i was further along than i thought. . .now i can't wait to know what it is! they told me they weren't going to order another ultrasound til i'm 21 weeks. . .i don't know if i can wait that long. is that normal to have them so far apart?

    It's completely normal for baby's measurements to be a bit off from your LMP (you probably just ovulated late).  It's also completely normal to not have another u/s until the anatomy scan at 16-20 weeks.  Some women have an NT scan between 11 and 14 weeks, which includes an ultrasound, but plenty of women only have a single u/s their entire pregnancy, and that takes place around 20 weeks.

    Totally normal on both accounts.  But I'm glad your u/s went well!! 

    This. Sounds perfectly normal - glad you had a good ultrasound!

    Yeah, my doctor's office does one u/s at 20 weeks.   Count yourself lucky you already got more than that.

    I am also measuring 5 days less than I should be...but I know that I am a "late ovulator."  I think every doctor is different with the ultrasounds.  I have had 3 so far (I am 9 weeks), and my next one will be 12 week ultra screen for downs syndrome.  My family thought there may be something wrong since I have had 3 ultrasounds already, but I think that is just the way my doctor is.
