Hi sandra;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the doctors calculation shows 7 weeks & the baby is 5 weeks then either it is a delayed conception or it could be a impending miscarriage.Please be patient & if possible repeat the ultrasound after 2 week when you have appointment then see if the baby shows improved growth it is a good thing if it does not then you may have miscarriage.If you worry it will affect the baby so be calm & hope for the best.
Take care.
