Ovulation date
I had a MC on the 30.04.2005 & went for a D & C on the 01.05.05 and my next period started on the 30.05.2005. I found out on the 28.06.05 that I was pregnant and went for my first scan on the 05.07.2005 and my second scan on the 19.07.05. The gynie asked me when was the first day of my lat period and he calculated from the 30.05.05 to that date and according to his caluculations I should be 7 weeks and 1 day pregnant but when he did the scan the scan said that I was exactly 6 weeks & 1 day pregnant. The gynie told me that the development of the fetus from the previous scan to this scan is normal but that's all he told me. Is it possible that I ovulated a week later than the normal 14 days or what could possible be the explanation for the 1 week diffirence in the gynie's calculation and the scan? I'm a little worried and would like some advice please!!!!

It is perfectly possible that you ovulated a week later than usual. I would suggest you go with the scan dates.
