  • Yes,it happend to me recently.
    Due dates are only estimates and they can be off by as much at two weeks in either direction and your not actually over due until your two weeks past your due date.
    So do not worry,i'm sure your fine i wish you nad baby good health.

  • I am going through that right now. My last period was May 5th and so my due date should be Feb 9th but the doctor claims that i'm not due until March 7 which doesn't make sense to me. If that were the case then I would have conceived in the middle of june which I already knew I was PG the first week of june. At my last three appts. the baby is measuring 2 weeks further than she should. I've been having contractions and all of the signs of the last month of pregnancy that I did with my other two children. So yeah....I don't think the doctors always know. Just listen to your body.

  • A friend of mine that is pregnant her doc thinks they might be off by two weeks because the baby is measuring 1 lb heavier then he should be at this point and she does not have any medical issues like diabetes so its possible.

  • Mine wasnt that drastic. They told me that mine would be born on June 29th, then they said July 1st and she ended up coming out on the 4th of July <3
