  • The ultrasounds are never spot on. It's just a guess. It said I was 2 weeks further along with my son then I really was. same with my daughter but it said I was 2 weeks farther then I really was. I wouldn't worry. All ultrasounds do is guess when it comes to measurements

  • mine are all different by 3 weeks according to my lmp......so according to my u/s & my belly measurements they are a week different... & everyone says they can be two weeks off when guessing.. so i just stick to my later due date the doctors gave me, but still am expecting I could deliver 3 weeks before.

  • I'd stick with the LMP, but don't go inducing at 39 or 40 weeks if you don't go into labor. If your baby is measuring small, it may be too early.

  • Ask your doctor which one he is going with. Because that is what really matters.

  • my doctor says april 15 that would mean i was over a month off on my period, no possible way i could be wrong! I got my period june 3 i know for a fact because my sons second birthday was the june 4th!
