I started testing 10dpo and the first line I had was quite dark so I could have been positive 9dpo but that puts the scan out just as much in the other direction.
Now I don't know if I should trust myself or the dating scan more.

Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines.If you know the date of the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP), or have already had your first ultrasound scan, you can use this tool.Please remember that the result will not necessarily be the day that your baby arrives. I recently found out I was pregnant and due to the fact thatmy previous pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, my OB wanted to see my right away.I was extremely nervous and scared because I had, had an ectopic pregnancy like 10 years ago.They didn't have a ultrasound tech to do it so my OBGYN performed the ultrasound. So she scheduled me to come back in two weeks from today. p/s this was an abdominal ultrasound I'm answering as an ultrasound tech of 12 years. So if you are under 6 weeks, it's less likely they will see baby. So that made me 6 1/2 weeks at the time and all they could see was a gestational sac. So the doctor told me to come back in a week later. I had a miscarriage on 9-6-10 (labor day) and I am constantly comparing this pregnancy to that one.
