  • Yeah. I was way off with the day of my last period when I got pregnant. When I went for the ultra sound, they guy said "either your due date is way off or your baby is going to be huge." He changed the due date back three weeks. She came on the second one and was normal size.

  • the weight that they tell you is just estimated just like te due date is jut an estimate. usually they will tell you to either take off lb or add a lb to the baby.
