Dear Ms. Ultrasound,
Hello! Was hoping for your expert opinion regarding ultrasounds. Is it at all possible that a 9-week gestational age per ultrasound could be off by two weeks? (And I am not confused as to the "missing 2 weeks" in calculating gestational age.)
Basically, in mm or cm, how much bigger is an 11-week pregnancy compared to a 9-week pregnancy?
An early first trimester ultrasound will not be off two weeks. It may be off two days, but not two weeks!
If you are wondering about a conception date you might let me know the date of the ultrasound and how many weeks and days you were at the time of the ultrasound. If there are specific possible conception dates you are wondering about let me know those too. We then can scientifically go through possibilities.
