blastocyst transfer working, I am so happy but i do worry

Hello Smile
On 9th of November I had a blastocyst transfer and I am so happy as it worked... Smile According to internet calculator at first I thought that on 4th of December I was 6 weeks and 3 days, but scan reviled that I was 5 weeks and 6 days CRL 2.80 MM. I came back next week on the 11th of December thinking that I was 6 weeks and 6 days but I was told that I was 6 weeks and 3 days CRL 6.10 MM. It made me really confused as if baby was supposed to be older 7 days so why only 4 while one week passed. My doctor says that everything is fine and I should just relax but I do worry as I had 3 Miscarriages, 2 ectopic pregnancies, and 1 unsuccessful IVF... :\\
Should I be worried, and maybe with Ivf pregnancy its different. Could someone advise me please.

Thank you,

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your worries are understandable but gestational age is rough calculation of the age of the fetus. FIst trimester scans are more reliable if the cycles are not regular. SO what ever the scan says is reliable also plus minum one or two days is not big deal. What matters is that fetus is healthy and alive.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
