I think it's late ovulation. Unless your period has always been regular..
my period is not typical 28 days. usually it is longer and my bleeding is around 7 days.
my period is not really regular, so i went to have traditional chinese medicine.
i check with the traditional chinese medicine, she say the medicine she gave me is ok for my baby.
so now i just hope my baby grows.
hi Lee Lian,
You are not alone. Me exact same thing. Im just back from Gynae.
My gynae used the normal external scan, but cant see baby. End up she got to use the vaginal scan instead.
By right baby should be 7 week 4 days according to calculation. But doc scan is only 5 weeks, as per the actual size.
She gave me some hormones pills & folic acid.
I asked her if its still positive? Her reply: Baby is in correct position, there is no bleeding. Its a good sign.
She asked me to visit her 3 weeks later to see by then baby got heartbeat. Lets Pray!!

thanks for sharing with me. my dr didnt give me any hormones pills though. he only gave me folic acid, vitamins and milk powder.
my dr arrange me to go back next week for another checkup to see if my baby is growing.
he said if the baby is healthy, the baby should grow. and now i am very worried about my baby.
yes, let's pray that our baby are well.
dont worry girl.. there is really nothing much we can do really.. and worrying just makes things worse..
She mentioned dont carry heavy stuff, walking try to keep to 10-15mins, light house work only... dont go for those 3 hours long shopping..
Maybe its really late ovulation... and we just hope that everything is ok... update me when you see gynae next week ok? take care! =)
In the end, it's late ovulation. By calculating by date when your period comes might not be accurate. So, dont worry. Stop the Chinese medication since you r on western med. dont worry too much..
my period used to be very irregular so i went traditional chinese medicine to regulate my period. have not been on traditional chinese medicine for 2+weeks already.
and i asked my traditional chinese medicine, she said the medicine is harmless to my baby, so i dont have to worry.
yup, all i can do now is to eat my folic acid, vitamins and milk powder while i wait for the appoint next week.
thanks for sharing with me your experience
dont worry too much , since your period is irregular , it might be just late ovulation .. just rest more and dont stress yourself ..
wait for the 2nd checkup and see how it goes again .. take care !
