Changing Due Date?!

According to my LMP I am due 10/25. The first ultrasound showed I was due 11/3. Another ultrasound further along showed 10/26. I am going with 10/26. SO I say I am 35w & 5d. I had an ultrasound on exactly 35w and it showed I was 35w & 5d then! What do you think? The week of 10/11, 10/18, 10/26, or 11/2? BTW this is our 1st!

  • doesnt really matter
    the 1st ultra sound the earliest would be more accurate
    the farther along you get the more it varies because of the growth of you rbaby
    babies grow differently
    at 36 weeks the ultra sound tol me I was 43 weeks along

    Your baby will come when it is ready due dates are just esttimates anyways.

  • I wouldnt stress too much, and I would go by the original due date.

  • It doesnt matter. The baby will be born whenever its ready (unless you induce) regardless of when you think it should be. I learned that with my 1st who was born at 42w 2d.

  • I would go with LMP, but that was most accurate for me. U/S's showed my due date as 6/5 and 6/6. By LMP my due date was 6/15, and I delivered 6/19.

  • i would say it doesnt really matter.. I was due 9/9 9/10 and 9/11 and delivered 9/20 so its whenever the baby feels like coming its nerve racking but first babies are usually always late..
