  • If you haven't had any bleeding or serious pain I wouldn't worry too much.

  • Probably you ovulated later than you thought. Are you having any other symptoms? Are you getting your HCG levels checked??

  • I would ask to have your HCG levels checked to make sure they are doubling. I had a miscarriage just over 6 weeks. My HCG levels were high but they stopped doubling.

  • If your going by your last cycle then it could be off by a few days or even a week or so. Doctors go based off of your last period because most women do not know the day that they concieved. For example my last period was october 5th and if the doctors went by that my due date is off by a week and I know this because I hadnt had sex since Feb of 2010 until Oct 23rd so it would be impossible that I concieved before Oct 23rd. I wouldnt worry about it to much unless you are bleeding and have a lot of cramping like mentioned above.

  • thank you all for your help. the doctor did not mention HGC levels. yes I am having symptoms mostly nausea and tender breasts, and no heartbeats yet they said it was to soon.
