  • trust your doc... i was in the er last week for a minor car accident. I'm 15 weeks and the er tech said my baby was 4 1/2 inches and 4 ounces. I read my baby book and at 15 weeks the baby should be around 4 inches (which what she said for that may be alright) but only about 1 ounce. so she was not to accurate on her information.

  • ER anything is never as good. You pay more money for crappier service. Listen to your doctor. But I knew my LMP, and my doctors were telling me I was wrong by 2 weeks because the baby was measuring small. I was originally due April 4th, 2007, and my due date was changed to April 18th, daughter was born April 11th, 2007. One week later than I thought, and one week earlier than they though. My daughter is REALLY small for her age, as was I, so I consider her to have been born at exactly 41 weeks. She didn't want to come out even after she was induced.
