If my dr says I'm 7 months (29 weeks) then how come on the due date calculator says an earlier date?

It says 2 weeks before my doctor says. When I was this far along with my 1st I didnt feel as much movement. Could I be 31 weeks instead of 29 weeks? Do you usually feel the baby move alot at this time? I feel like it gets tight on one side of my stomach maybe from running out of room from getting bigger?

  • You might have ovulated late in your cycle and your unltrasound date is more accurate. Or your baby might just be a little small and your LMP date is more accurate. I would go with whichever one gives you more time before somebody starts jumping up and down about inducing and have your bags packed a little early just in case. in other words, look up the definition of "Estimated" Due date and remember plus or minus 2 weeks.
