Ultrasound due date

I was given a date based off of ultrasound not LMP so do I count back 38 weeks or 40 weeks from due date to determine when conception may have occured?

  • You count back 38 weeks from your due date. And your due date is an ESTIMATE...if you slept with two people in close proximity, you will not know for sure.

  • When I want t get my ultasounds to see hw everything was she told me that I was a week offf and I'm due 9~4~09 but when I ask my doctor he tld me he called her and told her to stop telling ppl that they are a week more or the date is not right. So you should talk to your doctor and see what he say about it

  • umm the 23rd one. if you got a period after you had sex with the first one then your oviously not pregnant by them!

  • you should always go by the first ultra sound for the date, and dont let a doctor tell you that your due date has changed. they are going by the size of the baby on the ulta sound... a baby can grow at different speeds, he or she can be under weight or over.. They told me 6 different due dates due to the fact that my baby was small.
