Hmmm?

When you get pregnant does the doctor go by your last period or your last NORMAL period?

  • They ask about your last period. However, if your cycles are weird, they'll usually do an ultrasound early on to get a gestational age. My due date has never been right just going by my last period, because my periods are never regular. I've always had to get an early ultrasound done to measure the baby for gestational age.
