  • It would give you an estimate, by the baby's measurements.

  • Yes. They are most accurate between 8 and 12 weeks. After that they aren't so great at calculating a perfect due date, so take it with a grain of salt if you're farther along tahn that.

  • Yes, but it is not as accurate as the period measurement. But Dr's use the sonogram all the time to estimate due dates.

  • Yes, it can give you a VERY rough estimation. Ultrasounds are the most effective very early on.

  • They can be accurate. My ultrasound gave me an EDD that was only 1 day off from our actual date of conception EDD.
