    So I thought I was 7 weeks... went for an early scan today to be told I'm most likely only 4 or 5 weeks. Got a positive digital test very early on. I've to go back in 10 days to be rescanned and see if the pregnancy is progressing. As today only a sac was visible... any one any words of comfort please? xo

    Dates could be wrong, definitely.
    I was measuring 7 weeks when I was 8 weeks at one point and then the next time, bubs was measuring as I originally thought.
    Unfortunately, the only thing to do is to carry on as normal, try to relax and stay calm and keep your fingers crossed for your little one. You still have a good chance that all is ok.
    One thing I have learned is that we must have faith in our babies. I was so anxious in the first part of my pregnancy and can be still now, but each time, my baby has shown me that it is stronger than my mind.
    I had a miscarriage and tried to have faith in my baby, but learnt that I didn't do anything wrong and my baby just wasn't meant for this world.
    It's such a time of feeling like you're in limbo between those first scans, but keep your fingers crossed (again!) and trust in your little bean.
    Hugs - it's ann annoying time, but whatever happens you will get through. Xx

    All babies grow at different rates until 12 weeks. That's why they don't date you until 12 weeks. I'm sure everything will be fine Hun :)

    I was behind what I thought I was. I've now had 3 scans and saw just a yolk sac, then a tiny dot with a heartbeat and then finally a jelly baby moving around.

    Good luck :) xx

    Keeping everything crossed for you that your dates are out!
    Like Slb says, dating scans are at 12 weeks as baby's grow at different rates but are bigger and more defined by this point.

    Yep. They grow at funny rates even up until later in preg. I think!
    All could be fine. They say up to two weeks can be normal. Xx
