  • It's always possible but i really don't think a few weeks matter cause in the end some women have there babies two weeks early two weeks late it's just a waiting game.

  • Yes. They estimate based on baby's size on ultrasounds. Your due date is likely to change many times through your pregnancy...

  • possible yes, likely, i guess that depends on your circumstnces. Medical technology is pretty advanced these days and pretty good and at giving us an accurate date of gestation but stranger things have happened and some factors can come into play like irregular periods prior to pregnancy etc

  • yes. Doctors usually base an edd on a womans last period but that can be difficult because not all women have a regular cycle every month. so they usually say that you can deliver 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after your edd. Hope that helped.

  • My due date never changed, and I was SURE it was wrong, but my daughter was born just a few days before it. All this to say, of course the due date they give you could be wrong, because nothing that has to do with the body is ever right every time in the medical world. But most likely, it's pretty darn close!

  • yes, according to me I'm 28 weeks, according to them I'm 25 even though that's just not possible (unless my husband and I have magic sperm and eggs) and I'm currently measuring at 24 weeks.

    It's anybody's guess when I'm really due.

  • Yeah. My doctor told me I was due March 4th, but they changed it to Feb 25th! I'm about 33 weeks and I've dropped A LOT. I can't walk anymore without wanting to cry and I can forget about wearing matching shoes at work! lol
