  • Your doctor will tell you when you are due. But are you sure you didn't have an early miscarriage then get pregnant right after? Lots of women do that thinking it is their period.

  • If you were 6-8 weeks pregnant in December, you'd be due in July. I don't see how there could be such a huge discrepancy in dates though... I'd definitely get another opinion somewhere.

  • HCG tests are NOT a very accurate when it comes to predicting how far along you are. I woudl wait until you get an U/S to find out for sure.. you could have had a chemical pregnancy, early miscarriage and gotten pregnant again right away, because an Oct. 28th due date would mean you weren't pregnant at all mid. Dec.

  • HCG isn't what they go by. They go by your earliest ultrasound. The count is just typical of 6 to 8 weeks.

  • i did not get a positive result until February in 2002 with my second child she was born Oct 28 but was late , ultrasound is better then HCG

  • When was your last day of your period? Take that last day add 9 months and 7 days. It gives you an approximate due. I had my son the day after what was said to be my due date.

  • I had a chemical pregnancy before my dd. I had a pos. Hpt in the beginning of November but didn't have my daughter until end of aug.

  • I would have a long talk with your health care professional, that is too big a difference to just leave to chance. There is something going on.
