Small 7 week measurements

Hi Alex
I don`t know if you can answer my question, but it doesn`t hurt to ask! I went for my first scan today, Im about 7wks, my doc was concern that the measurements were bit smaller than they should of been. But said it was certainly a viable fetous, as there was a heart beat.

What does this mean? I went for a bloodtest to check my hormones levels this arvy and another ultrasound in a week.
Thanks
Dee.

Answer: Hi Dee, Thank you for your enquiry. An ultrasound scan is checked on averages - your baby could be a bit smaller than average at 7 weeks. Try not to worry too much just yet and look after yourself. Unfortunately early pregnancy is a lot of `wait and see`. Best wishes, Alex.
