Oh my gosh you scared the snot out of me.. I thought you meant they were saying you weren't pregnant at all!! Sperm is supposed to last up to 8 days, so it's entirely possible that you could've conceived that late, although it would be weird. Please do stay with us, we like you and you'd only be off by one day anyway.

I'm glad everything was okay!!

I've often researched this sperm-life question and have always found that if there are very good conditions (ideal womb and vaginal environment, fertile CM, strong sperm, etc) sperm may be able to live for six to seven days, so you're definitely not out, and you're not leaving us!!

If the sonographer said the sac is good, then it's good hon. I know you have a tough 2 weeks ahead, but by then you will have solid answers. In the meantime take it as easy as possible, and make sure that that sac is getting all the fluid and nutrients it needs.

There is an Oct-Dec board, but we want you here with us hon. Here is where you belong

I won't change your EDD just yet either, once I've measured less than my EDD and another time more than my EDD, and there's absolutely no doubt at all when our miracle was conceived because it's an ICSI baby and an embryologist injected a sperm into each egg!!

Stay with us hon, we want you to stay. You belong here.

Try to stay positive. All we saw was a sac at first, I was positive about my dates but freaked out when they couldn't find a hb. Hopefully you will have a happy story too. The next week the baby looked great. Just had another us at 13 weeks and we are right on track. I'm sorry you are having to go through this.

sorry to hear your going through a stressful time. The ladies are right, you must stay on this board especially since you are happy here and we are all fantastic! lol
When I went for my first ultrasound with my first pg, they measured my baby a whole week less than I should have been as well. (and we did IVF so we knew the dates) At the next appt, I was right back on track? Don't know if the sonographer was off or what, it was weird but it happened and everything turned out fine. I am wishing positive news for you on your next appt!
