  • I think it depends if the doctor decided to change your EDD....I Know my EDD changed at the ultrasound, but only by a few days.

  • well it started off at april 3rd then they changed it to march 29 but this was before the 2 week thing and they told me that they have to do c-sections 2 weeks before

  • Oh so they already changed it once. Have you seen them since this new U/S, they might change it again and then take the baby earlier, if they feel the baby is "older" then the first EDD. Is there any other reason the baby could be larger, like diabetes ?

    That would be cool if the baby is actually "older" then you thought and you got an earlier Csection !!!

  • ask for the blood date determination test - it's been around for years and gives a pretty accurate ages of the baby.

  • If they are doing a c-section because of his size, then why not wait til 40 weeks? Babies need enough time to grow and develop to be ready for the world outside of the womb.

  • My due date was moved up a month with my son because of the u/s and when he was born a week late, they said he looked 2 weeks early. I think that is a pretty big difference and shows how wrong u/s dating is.
