Hi, I had an abdominal ultrasound on Friday 12/22 that showed a fetus with a heartbeat measuring 5 weeks 5 days. Today (12/28) I had another abdominal scan with a heart beat of 95bmp (3 measurements taken, one was as high as 101bpm) but was only measuring 5 weeks 6 days. is this cause for concern?

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap smear? Have you ever had an irregular pap?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
