6 weeks not seven ... spot the bubble


So, we got the scan and report this morning. It says bubble is measuring 6 weeks and 1 day. But the scan was actually done last Wednesday, when we would have technically been 6 weeks and 6 days. So we're five days behind. Does this matter?

The scan is so blurry and dark, and I can't see a thing except for a little blob between an x and a 1. Bubble measured 4.7mm last Wednesday and s/he is "a single live fetus in a well-defined gestational sac" and "fetal cardiac activity is well appreciated". How do these ultrasound docs find something so small? 

Anyway, can you see him/her? And which bit is the yolk sac?

Is it over to the right, or is it on the left. Nah their it is right in the middle. Fabulas to see your child right there in front of me. It's gonna be on hell of a photo that I am gonna produce at his/her's 21st.

I wonder if I could tell if it is a boy or a girl....

But really Uncle Nik is really so proud of you both and at 18 I am more than happy to teach your child how to drink Vodka if you like....

Congrats and well done to you both.

I wouldn't worry about the five days. Next scan should be consistent with the day count less the 5 days so it will all be good. The scan pic is exciting even tho who knows what we are looking at!

BTW

This anonymous dick-head came via the Mikes blog, to mine. Straight to the comments page. It's from Japan. So easy to track down these numbskulls with live feedjit, and site tracker. It will take just one email to your ISP telling them you are abusing people via the net and you'll have to get yourself another ISP. Is it worth it?
