  • I would go by the Dr's date. They use all different things to determine that.

  • A due date is always off by at least a wek either way... and really, it doesn't matter that much. I'd go by the doctors date and the first u/s.

  • Go by the doc's. However, keep in mind that it REALLY doesn't matter. Your baby is going to come whenever he or she wants regardless of your due date. Be ready early (I'd be ready now, actually), but just know that your baby's birthday might be in March!

    My due date was August 20th, though by my period math it should have been the 27th...and THEN I measured two weeks ahead at every appointment, lol. My baby was born on the 25th and was much larger than anyone expected. I enjoyed every last day of my pregnancy (and life before baby) and didn't even think about the date. I hope I can do exactly the same thing next time. :)
