Post subject: Early Scan results
Well, there was a heartbeat. Phew! But much earlier than I thought - only 6 weeks size. The thing is, then, the dates don't add up! I'm 8 weeks on Friday if I go from the first day of my last period.
I thought it was going to be a vaginal scan so didn't invite my partner to save him the embarrassment. Feel a bit mean now.
At least I have a picture of my litttle blob.

Hiya, good to hear everythings well with the baby congrats. I believe theres a two week difference between your estimated due date and what the scan shows because although according to you you're 8 wks from the first day of last period you didnt actually conceive (become pregnant) until two weeks after your period as thats when your body released and egg an the scan shows the actual age of the baby two weeks after your period so you are both right in your ways, does it make sense hun or am i waffling lol!!!

My God I hadn't thought of that, thank-you so much!
He did ask me how many weeks I was, I said, what from the 1st day of my last period? He said yes.. but then I guess he's actually telling me how old the baby actually is... so it all makes sense...! Excuse me, thinking out loud. Yippee...
