I went to the doctors and he did an ultra sound, and measured the baby. He said the baby is around 8 weeks 3 days, but that would of made the first day of my last period on the 7th of december, and I know it was on the 2nd. Does that mean that my baby is growing slower than normal? Also I have put on abou 6 lbs since about a month ago. I was 119 on the 25th and now I am 125. Am I putting on too much weight?

Its All Okay
When I first had my ultrasound I thought it was with my period. The Dr. Told me in that case I got pregnant after I had my period, most commonly happens before and after your periods cause the egg is lower at that point and easier to get through to. Now about your weight mine has gone up and down. I went the first time I had lost 2 pounds, 2nd time, gained 10 pounds, went back and lost 4 pounds. All together I had only gained 4 pounds during my pregnany. I am now 15 weeks pregnant and 2 days. I know I have gained, but I wont know how much until the 5th on thursday. I will let you know.
