Which dates are correct?

I am pregnant. I think I am about 9 weeks. The doctor did my ultrasound and says I am only 6weeks. I think that is wrong because I tested postive the first week of December, so if they are right it would of been too early to get a positive result. This is important to me because I have to have a cerclage. Now I am afraid they will move it to a later date and if the doctor is wrong that could be a very bad thing.


Dear Billie,

It depends on what, precisely, the doctor saw. At nine weeks, you should be able to see the baby and the heartbeat very easily. It is possible that the doctor only saw a sac without a baby. If the doctor did not see a baby, there are two possibilities: you could be not as far along as you thought, or you could be in the process of having a miscarriage (eventually leading to the actual miscarriage).

Talk to your doctor to clarify why he thinks you are only 6 weeks along. It he saw only the sac, you need to have another ultrasound to see if a baby is present.
