Possible missed miscarriage Mummy79 Japan 1 posts
26th Feb '13

Have been to see the dr today and had a scan. I thought myself to be 8 weeks based on LMP. Scan shows between 5-6 weeks. Dr says I may have suffered a missed miscarriage and have to go back in a week for another scan. If no changes then its evident I have. Can I have got pregnant before my next period was due (so after I ovulated but before the period) which would have made the drs dates correct? Can I have got a positive preganancy test within 2 weeks of ovulation and conception or is it more likely that this is a missed miscarriage? If it is, this is miscarriage number 4 and im devestated already - dread to think what the next week is going to be like waiting when I think I know in my heart of hearts that this is the end.

Ive gotten pregnant on my period before. Calculating how far along you are my your LMP isnt an exact science and can very easily be off due to late ovulation/implantation. The next u/s should show you everything you will need to know. Hoping your baby has grown and has a strong hb.

happened to me this pregnancy, I went in thinking I was almost 9 weeks along then the doctor told me I was only 8 weeks..turns out I ovulated late and I even got a positive test within a week and a half after conception...as long as you're feeling symptoms and your not bleeding don't worry too much until it's a definite yet on the missed miscarriage..did they see how high your hcg levels are?...

Yeah with this pregnancy they moved my due date back a week from my LMP due to ovulation. So it turns out I got a BFP around 7-9 dpo with very little hold. Pregnancy isnt always the same. Some babies take a little longer.
