First u/s

My DH came back early from work travel and got to go with me to the first u/s. I was nervous, but I'm glad he was there with me.
We saw one baby with a strong heartbeat. It was 138 bpm.
I am supposed to be 7 weeks pregnant and the baby was measuring 6 weeks 5 days. My RE was not worried.
I go back in another week before they will release me. I'm hoping the baby keeps growing. Two days is no big deal, but I still worry. My RE thought I should have been 7 weeks 1 day, but there is no way for them to know when I ovulated. Either way, he said unless it is a week difference they don't worry.
I'm kinda worried because my HCG was so high at 6 weeks pregnant and I only have one baby. I asked my RE and he just said it was kinda high, but he said 'well they will tell you with the triple screening'. I didn't like that answer. I really don't mind having a child with downs syndrome as my sister is mentally retarded, but I'm scared my peri won't do the cerclage if anything is wrong with the baby. I need to stop googling. :)
I'm worrying too much - I just need to take it -one step at a time.
I just love this baby so much and as we all do - want a great outcome.

I am sure the baby is fine. So glad you u/s went well. I measured two days behing at my first appt. Then a day ahead at my next. Then two days behind again at my third. It can change depending on angle of the baby. Congrats again.

You have every right to worry as that's all you've done since you lost your first baby. But take your own advice and take it one day at a time. I'll be praying for a positive outcome.
