I went for a ultra sound today at 7 w 1 d and there was a yolk sac and I saw and heard the heartbeat. She never said anything about a fetal pole though is that normal? Maybe she just did not mension it?

If you saw heartbeat I'd say everything is ok.

That's exactly what the fetal pole is. So I'd say your good. So do you think now that you had your dates off?

If there was a heart beat then there was a fetal pole. They often only point out the fetal pole if there isn't a heart beat.

My date was off by 2 weeks but I went jan 25 baby was 5w1d and then went exactly 2 weeks later and baby was 7w1d so it's growing right on track.
