Those are based on the typical growth of a fetus who usually weighs and average of 7.5 lbs at birth and is about 20 inches. If you are a small person and so is the daddy your baby will probably be small too and then would show as being further behind then they actually are. Also you should factor in that you could have ovulated later than normal in your cycle and that too would make the dates different. I had been given a due date at the 6 week u/s and then at the 18 week one it was off by almost a whole week they still went by the first date because that is really the most accurate. If you don't like the doctor though change one thing you should always feel comfortable with is your ob. That is a must.
