if by your LMP you had a due date of may 25th but the ultrasound gave you a due date of may 16th does that mean you measured 9 days bigger?

  • Yes but a difference of only nine days can later be lost in the total 280 days course of events. Good luck and congratulations.

  • keep in mind that ultrasounds can be wrong by up to 2 weeks

  • Yes. The US due date is usually more acurate than the LMP due date. Doctors initially go by the LMP in order to guestimate weekage. When they feel you are about 6-8 weeks, they'll do a confirmation US to measure the fetus to get a more acurate due date based on the baby's measurements. This due date is more accurate.

  • yes it happens with most women a due date is just a guess the ultra sound is more correct my due date was may 16 and when i had my ultra sound they said it looked like she was 6 days bigger and will be born on may 10th or sooner nothing too worry about
