Im confussed?? Due Dates?

My doctor told me that i am due April 20th and that i was 16 weeks along well that would now make me 20 weeks along but if i really was 20 weeks along that would make my due date around the 13 right ?? Could he be wrong or does your due date just change a lot. i am just wondering because my ticker thing says i am gonna be 19 weeks tommorow but i really should be 20. its confusing me

  • With all three of my pregnanies my due date changed at least three times. The intial then baby measurments with the ultra sound then again with belly measurements.

  • Your doc may have misspoke with one of your numbers, so I would just ask him to clarify the dates again.

    Some doctors change due dates a lot. Remember: they're just an estimate, and really mean NOTHING. Your baby will come whenever he or she wants, be it six weeks "early" or two weeks "late". My due date didn't really line up with my period or times we would have conceived, so I kinda stopped pretending I had one and just tried to have everything ready from eight months on. Good luck!

  • This is a good thing to do. Write down all the dates your doctor tells you and when the baby really does come...well show doc how close they really were. Never thought to do that with mine...have fun.

  • Mine never changed i guess it depends on the doctor, ....

    I have heard alot of women state that theirs did change alot of times, during the pregnancys,

    I dont know,

    I would try and remember the last period you had ..and google an estimated due date calculator on your internet browser,

  • I am 21 1/2 weeks.... due April 3rd.

    Go with your earliest ultrasound

    I would trust a medical professional to a website ticker.
