  • I think it is pretty common for them to be either bigger or smaller because your due date is usually just an estimated due date. My daughter was always measuring about a half a week to a week smaller than my due date, and so far @ my first ultrasound with this one I had the same thing.

  • Its easier to tell if you know the date of your last menstural period. Babies after 12 weeks start to measure differently but I dont know how they would between 6-8 weeks. I can imagine your frustration hun :(

  • well when i took the hpt i went to the local clinic and they told me based off my last period i was already 7weeks..the last day of my period was feb 5th which wld put conception about the 19th or so..we found out at the end of the mnth or the begging of march but when i calld my obs they put me at 4weeks??? and so when we went into the obs to have or 1st ultrasound the baby was spose to b 6weeks and like 4days or something and was already at 8weeks on the dot?? and we had or 21week ultrasound this fri and she was a day ahead again!!!!!!!!!!! its exciting that she could come earlier but scary at the same time.

  • With my daughter my due date changed 3 times. May 17th, May 23rd, then May 31st and she was born June 7th. With this one I knew pretty much when I conceived so my due date is more accurate. But they did an ultrasound 2 weeks ago and my baby is measuring 3 weeks ahead of what I am. I'm 37 weeks and he is now measuring 40 weeks. So we'll see.
