Am I 12 weeks?

When I went to the doctor she told me based on my last period that I was 11 weeks and 1 day. But the baby measured 12 weeks. Am I actually 12 weeks or am I 11 weeks

  • Split the difference and make it 11 1/2
    The due date can be off by weeks in either direction

  • Does it really matter? You are only like 3 months pregnant. You have a lot of more months of pregnancy to go. Doctors never get it right any ways. They are guestmating anyways.

  • Early ultrasounds are pretty accurate as faras measurements and estimating the date of delivery. But it's only a week anyway, and due dates can be off by a couple of weeks in any direction.

  • It's all an estimate. Due date and measurements can be off two weeks in either direction. I wouldn't worry about it since you fall in the time frame.
