    Hello, I did not knwo my LMP I just knew it was in June and I went for a dating scan and was told I was 10weeks pregnant. Is this very accurate and do all babies grow at the same rate in early pregnancy?

    Thanks.

    Hi Babs,

    When did you have your scan??? If they just told you, you were 10wks is it possible you could be wrong about your lmp. If in fact you had a lmp in June then you should be much further then 10wks My lmp was in July and I almost 16wks. It is possible that babies grow differently but not like that. How about blood testing to check the HCG levels, have you had any done?? That would be able to confirm the amount of weeks you are. Hope this is helped somewhat and made things more confusing. Let us know how things go.

    xoxo Ree

    I had my dating scan on the 18 Aug and they said I was 10 weeks and 2 days, my LMP was in June but not sure when, they said it would have been the 07 June and that would have made me 10 weeks and 2 days but I was just wondering are the early dating scans accurate and did anyone know there LMP and if so when they had a dating scan were they accurate to your dates within a week or so.

    Thanks

    I had a scan at 5 weeks and they gave me the due date of 12 Feb - I am now 23 weeks and my due date has only been changed by one day - to the 11th. I would say that early scans are pretty reliable, obviously there is always an expection but i would go by your scan date at the moment which i believe would make you 19+2 today?

    hope your feeling well otherwise - is this your first?

    Hiya Jessika, thanks for that, so did their dates agree with yours providing you knew when your LMP was? Yes is it my first, can you tell? I feel so anxious and worried about everything all the time, it feels weird to know that I'll have this little baby totally dependent on me, scary!!!

    i know how you feel - it's really scary but nice at the same time. I didnt know my LMP because i had been on depro and was very irregular - we worked it out to be 8th May, then concieved 20th to give EDD of 11 Feb 06. I really wouldnt worry too much - as long as your MW says all is fine with teh growth then you have nothing to worry about. Are you due a 20 wk scan soon? Get urself a ticker too they're fun to help count down!

    Hiya Jessika, I have my anomaly scan on the 09 Nov, by then I'll be 22 weeks and 1 day. Yeh, I'm sure it's all okay.

    Thanks for your help and support.

    Don't worry Jessika, I know that some hospitals don't tell you the measurements. Did you have a nuchal scan, I did at 13 weeks and 6 days and the CRL was 82mm

    no had the triple test instead as very low risk due to age. I had one scan at 5 weeks, one at 10 wks and one at 20 wks
