Do you have the right number of sts for all the sections? There should be 123 sts on your needle when you start the row. If you don't have that many, you missed some somewhere.

Ok. I'll count them...but if you "count" the row including the M1 how do you come up with 20 sts and not 23

I think you're confused. As you do the M1 sts, there will be 20 for the front, 23 for the sleeve, 37 for the back, 23 for 2nd sleeve, 20 for the other front. That will bring the total number to 123 (I meant that you would start the row with 103, sorry; then you do the 20 inc sts which brings the number to 123 when you're done.)

Here's the row, for others who want to jump in...

K6, M1, K5, M1, K5, M1,K1, pm (20 sts for front),
K1, M1, K6, M1, K5, M1, K6, M1, K1, pm (23 sts for sleeve),
K1, M1, (K6, M1) twice, K5, M1, (K6, M1) twice, K1, pm (37 sts for back),
K1, M1, K6, M1, K5, M1, K6, M1, K1, pm (23 sts for other sleeve),
K1, M1, K5, M1, K5, M1, K6 (20 sts for other front).

You're doing a kfb aren't you? That uses a st each time; a M1 is pick up the bar between two sts and knit it with a twist. If you're doing kfb, it's going to have to be k5, kfb, k4, kfb, k4, kfb, k1.

Your M1s only add one stitch, not two (in fact, M1 means "make one"). So 6+1+5+1+5+1+1 = 20 stitches.

You're brilliant, woman! I was trying to figure out how she got two stitches out of a M1, but I think you've hit the nail on the head.
