mmuha, Congratulations!

With two missed menstrual periods, both of you are obviously confused about when you conceived. He looked at your size and where the baby is and decided that it is about 5 weeks old. But you told him you missed two periods.

An ultra sound can make this much more accurate. So he wants to wait for that result to confirm his estimation before he gives you a due date. The most accurate ultra sound can be done in week 6, 7 and 8. That is why he wants to see you in 2 weeks time.

There are many reasons why you could have missed the first period and I am sure he just wants to make sure.

Were you planning a baby?

Best of luck!!
