8 weeks (according lmp) but sonogram measuring @5

hi everyone, just looking for comfort, advice or just venting. According to my lmp I should be 8 weeks but 1st sonogram measures @5. My doc (which I plan to switch) was not sympathetic at all. I understand what the outcome can be. However, I also know there could be a good ending. We took a blood test & my levels are 33,000 which doc thinks is an advanced pregnancy. I questioned if I was actually 8 weeks- maybe I ovulated later. Though I understand 3 weeks is a bigger gap to be incorrect- but a possibility! I am getting a 2nd opinion as my doc said after next sonogram she wants to schedule d&c if no change in growth.

  • What date did you get the bfp? and what date was your ultrasound?

    2012: Baby #1
    2014: Baby #2
    October 2015: missed miscarriage #2 at 11 weeks (trisomy 22)

  • Bfp March 23 & 1st sonogram April 18

  • when is the next appointment? I don't think you're wrong in wanting a second opinion but after over 4 weeks after bfp there's no growth he isn't wrong in giving you the information to set up a d&c. I'm sorry. I've been in a similar situation. fx for growth 
  • I'm sorry. If your bfp was March 23, you should be at least 7 weeks along.  It would be reasonable to schedule a d and c if the next scan shows no growth. I'm sorry to tell you this. Unfortunately, it is very common and probably caused by a genetic problem. I have had it happen twice.
