This is a discussion on measures of beby six weeks can be 18 mm? within the General Pregnancy Discussion forum, part of the Pregnancy Forum category; I've made love before six weeks with my girlfriend, and she claims it is pregnant. when there was a doctor ...
I've made love before six weeks with my girlfriend, and she claims it is pregnant. when there was a doctor visit. turned out it was six weeks but the baby was 18 mm size. I doubt. that babies can not have this degree after six weeks pregnant? do you think so??
i just checked my untrasound scans. when i was 6week pre, baby was 6mm and when 9 week preg, he was 31mm...
i agree with Ashbaby, every baby's growth is diffe so hard for us to tell which is the right size.
but since your gf can tell you the 'estimate' size, i think could be true? if you dont trust what she said, then can ask her to test usuing a kit and show you, or just acc her to her monthly checkup with her gynae.
you give me the impression that you are trying to find out is the baby yours
Why dont't you bring your gf to a gynae n see the scan for yourself?
If you had sex with her 6 weeks ago, then she can't be 6 weeks pregnant, she'd be minimum 8 weeks pregnant, because the pregnancy is counted from the first day of the last period and so by the time conception takes place, you're already 2 weeks in.
Up to 12 weeks gestation, all babies grow at the same rate which is why they do the 12 week scan as a dating scan.
From dating table used in UK from Robinson and Fleming - British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology:
6+6 days 8
From the same chart, 18mm corresponds to a pregnancy which dates at 8+3 days, so if you had sex with her 6 weeks ago, the dates match up and it's entirely possible that you're the father.
Welcome to responsibility.

you only ML with your gf once isit?? if before that there is, then of cos she have chances of being preg anot lahs.
why do you suspect the kid not yours?
your gf very loose n sleep arnd? if so, then you can only blame yourself for wanting to be her bf n bed her and NOT using protection.
every baby's growth is DIFFERENT, regardless of how many weeks or month the baby is. you ever seen each baby born with the same weight?? common sense PLS.
the only way you can find out whether the kid is yours is after the baby is born, do a DNA test.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
just to share on my own pregnancy.
my hubby and i tried on our very first time on 25 May (coz we did planning few months back that we wanted a Feb 2011 baby) as that was the planned date to start. n i missed my menses in June. i was preg. i had my first scan on 29 June. I was 5 weeks preg. it fits in on our first try.
so this shows, 1 time of unprotected sex can strike lottery too~ you may want to follow your gf to the doc visit the next time round and see how many week is the baby now. do your own count back and you should know if you did strike a lottery on your own. sizes differ from every pregnancy so do not determine the sizes to "whether it is yours anot". determine the weeks instead.
glad that you will want to take up this responsibility. but think twice, its not a game raising a child. its take lotsa effort,time,love,money and patience.
Delivered my girl on 03 Feb 2011 & my boy on 03 Jan 2013 =)
My pregnancy was unexpected too. So we married after we realize an quickly took our wedding photo before my stomach is obvious. I didn't want to take but my mum-in-law insisted maybe because it's tradition?
Whatever happens, things will resolve eventually. We were at a lost too. But after we told both of our parents, they were supportive. We used the hong Bao money given to us do check up and supplements, wedding photo, baby items, etc.
Right now, treat your future wife well. Before we had the courage to tell our parents, I pondered over abortion and it hurts my heart a lot just by the idea of it. I cried a lot too as I'm afraid my parents will force me into doing it. But I think I worried too much. They supported me after we assured them with our plans for the future
So I wish you all the best!!
just to add on, i had my scan 2 weeks ago.. the scan shows baby is 8weeks0day, its 17mm already. so to have 18mm, maybe baby is 6weeks6days? difficult to judge.
Where you all see the MM? from the scan sheet?
sigh good luck ts
TS might just really want to make sure that the baby is his ... Not saying that his gf is sleeping around or anything.. ( i got no evidence).. He just wants to make sure it's his otherwise, he might feel that it's unfair to him to be raising someone elses kid.
Just so TS can be sure that it's his.. Only he knows how many times they have had sex and within the timeline till gf got pregnant, how many days before dear daughter you have unprotected sex?
if you really want to be sure, you can do a DNA test when the baby is out. but...that is if she is planning to keep the baby. if she says the baby is yours, than be a gent and help her through the pregnancy..its the least you can do even if you have doubts...babies grow differently and like what everyone is saying, if you had unprotected sex with her 6 weeks ago, most likely the baby is yours if she is 8 weeks pregnant..if she is 6 weeks, than you might have made your baby 4weeks ago...
