A female asked:
Disclaimer

my lmp is 26-5-2017, but today my ultrasound shows gestational age of 5 weeks and 6 days... is it normal?

Yes it can be: normal - you may have been fertilized right before your menstrual period in June was due - so that would put the conception 5-6 weeks ago. I would not worry about the gestational age, be ecstatic for yourself and your partner and the wonderful child that is coming to this world. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
