  • SO I had my first appointment today. I am only measuring 6 weeks 1 day even though I think I ought to be 7 weeks. I am trying not to be concerned about it. The doctor did say he thought he could see a heartbeat which is a positive. I wasn't completely sure what day I started my last period, and my periods were a little irregular rigth before I got pregnant, so I guess it makes sense that I could have ovulated a little later than mid cycle and I may have been off a day or two on my period as well. At least he's only making me wait 2 weeks until my next appointment. He said if I am still measuring behind at the next appointment, he'll adjust my due date.
