Measuring small

Hello.  I am at 7 wks based on my LMP, but measured at 5 weeks 3 days with a heartbeat of 120.  I'm returning for another sonogram in 2 weeks.  My doctor was not concerned, but of course, I am.  (I was pregnant over the summer and miscarried at 8 weeks.  In that case, also measured small, but the heartbeat never rose above 90.)

Help?  Advice?

hi
i dont kno if u r aware that you r not actually pregnant 2 weeks after ur LMP so altho u think u r 7/8 weeks from LMP the conception would have been 2 weeks after that so
8 weeks gestation is 6 weeks fron conception, 9 weeks gestation is 7 weeks from conception and so on. i hope this makes sense altho a bit late for replying.
