Praying for the best.

Just left an OB appointment and ultrasound with some disturbing news. I should be 9 weeks 5 days. The dr decided to do my first ultrasound today and said baby was looking more like 6 weeks. Said either we just weren't as far as long as he thought or the fetus stopped developing at 6 weeks. Uterus measures for a 9-10 week pregnancy. But he wasn't sure because he was doing it on a portable ultrasound. So he sent us to a nearby clinic with a better ultrasound machine. Technician did that ultrasound and got very serious at one point and quit talking to us. Told us that our dr would be calling us very soon to go over everything.

My dates of almost ten weeks should be more accurate. The first day of my last period was 3/21/2013.

Just waiting on dr to call. Hoping and praying for the best. But the technician doing the second ultrasound really worried me.

Has anyone had a similar situation happen?
