Went to the ER...

Everything is fine, but I'm so confused! It all started this morning, I went to use the bathroom and there was blood on the TP. It was brown so I didn't think much of it, but 30 mins later I started cramping, went to the bathroom again and it was red. SO here I am thinking "ok, here we go". I called the Doc and told me to go to the ER. So I finally get seen have bloodwork done and an ultrasound....I got to see the HEARTBEAT!!!!!!!! So reaffirming. I am confused though because by ultrasound measurements the tech said I'm measuring 6 weeks 2 days. How can I be 2 weeks off from my calculations I should be 8 weeks 2 days. I took a HPT right at what I thought was 5 weeks, according to them that would have been 3 weeks, wouldn't that have been too early for an HPT? So confusing!!!!!!! So from LMP my due date is January 18th but according to ultrasound my due date is January 31st.

Could you have implanted really late? Someone said you can implant up to 10 days after O... I really don't know (but hey we can be due date buddies if you really are due 1/31!). I'm glad everything looks good...

Well, it is entirely possible that you got a BFP at 3 weeks. I have seen it here many times. Since you don't know when you Od, and if I recall it was during a rather stressful and busy time, it doesn't seem farfetched that you are not as far along as you thought.

You saw a heartbeat, that is wonderful! Try to find solace in the fact the right now baby is happy and healthy.

I had my bfp around 3 weeks...9dpo. I'm glad you saw the heartbeat. Did they tell you a cause for the bleeding (subchronic hemmorage?)

glad that everything is ok and you got to hear the hb! i don't think that figuring out a due date or even an ovulation date are exact sciences...there's always going to have to be some room for error. every woman's body is different, every baby and pregnancy is different...baby's going to show up when he or she is good and ready!

I got my BFP at 3 weeks. If it was really light I would imagine it was probably earlier than 5 weeks. Also every mother grows baby's at different rates and every baby grows at different rates. I wouldn't worry about the dates until you get your 20 week U/S. That has always been the most accurate U/S for dating for me.

Both of these. I got mine at 3 weeks too and it wasn't super light. I hope you get answers soon from your OB.

I am not really sure about the weeks, etc, but i got a BFP early as well.

My LMP was 3/27 & my bfp was on 4/24. I don't know how you calculate the weeks out of that, but I'm pretty sure that was early.

I'm so excited you got to see the hb Erin. I am happy your are both doing well.

Thanks ladies!! Yes, when all is said and done....SOOO happy to see that little heartbeat. Even if I am less far along than I thought I guess I just bought myself time!! Don't we all wish we could say that at times??!! LOL All in all, glad everything is okay. They did not say the reason for the bleeding just that it is common (because it was so little). They just said to rest and not do anything excessive and no DTD for 3 weeks (not a big deal for me, somewhat of a big deal for DF, lol). I had to change my ob appt till monday instead of today, so hopefully I will get more answers then.
