If there was anything to worry about I am sure the OB or U/S tech would have mentioned it.  Were you basing on your last missed period or from your ovulation?  
Thanks for your reply. i started counting form 1st day of my last period. n my period was always regular.

have you tried counting from your ovulation date to determine what the difference is?


I am guessing that they did see a sac and fetal pole?

if i count from ovulation day then it should be 6th week but its not so. As doc said he could not see the hands and legs budding out as it happens in 6th week of fetus. 

did he state any concern over the viablilty?

how did you determine what your ovulation date was?

i too have the same problem. Today i had ultrasound and the doc said i showing 6 weeks instead of 8 weeks. they told me to come for ultrasound next week to check for the growth. I 'am really worried please advice on this...
