  • Ultrasounds are not always completely correct. Sometimes the size of the baby can throw them off. Also, YOUR size can throw them off. I was huge when I was pregnant and they thought I was full term when I was actually only 30 weeks pregnant. It's quite common for the due date to change when you get multiple ultrasounds.

  • i went with my first prego and it was 1-2 days different... so its just a guess anyway

  • It is very common for the due date to change with an ultrasound. When you first go to the dr you give them an estimate of your last period. Which isn't always correct. When they do the ultrasound, they actually measure the baby which can give them a more accurate due date.

  • this happened to me. But instead of just a week, mine was off by a month and a half!! it went from Feb. 14th to March 21st !! and then they changed it again to march 14th. all depends on how your baby is growing. I had my son March 11th... and he was 8lbs 1oz.....
