Hi Girls I had my first scan today at 8weeks and I'm a little worried about the size of the baby the nurse scanning me seemed to be more worried about something else she seen on the scan than the baby which turned out to be my cervix! I'm probably worrying for nothing but I would just like to put my mind at rest and I know a lot of girls get early scan so if you dont mind sharing the size of your babys at your scan it may help to relax me! Thanks x

Long time no talk :o0 Just checked my scan at 7wks 5d and sumobaby measured 1.41cm and had heartbeat of 149bpm. I know you told me earlier but what measurement did you have again today??

Wild Child-I had a scan at 9 weeks but as I did'nt get a pic I cant check the measurements. But the consultant just kept saying, "its very small, but that is normal", all he really wanted to check at that point was the heartbeat and that it was a single pregnancy. My hubbie says he did take measurements as he could see better and he said I was measuring right for 9 weeks. I then had a 12 week scan and could not believe the difference-a small but fully formed baby in there. Dont be worrying-you will see much more at future scans and a few weeks makes a big difference

Hey wildchild, that sounds right, our lo we lost was only measuring 4mm at 8 weeks!! This little one I think was 14mm at 7weeks 3 days so I'd say its all well, she would've told ya if something wasn't right.

Hi Wild Child. I had my first scan on Friday when i was 8wks 3days. Had a look at my scan picture and it has the following measurements: [B] x 1.7 G69 P100 DR4 EE3 FA1: 1.5 Not sure what they mean but my consultant seems to think they were bang on for my date. Hope this helps!
