Unhappy could i be farther along?

i had my period show up exactly 1 week early and last for less than 1 day. my period usually lasts 5 days and came every 30 days. i am pregnant and the doctors says that the ultrasound is right on my due date. can the ultrasound be wrong? i know for a fact that a period lasting that long when u normally last 5 days means the implantation time of a fertilized egg. please help me with this delema.

It could be implantation or just early spotting, which is quite common. Unless you're sure of your ovulation date (and you wouldn't be unless you were tracking temps and cervical fluid), I would go with the doctor's estimate based on the ultrasound.
