 I'm suppose to be 26 wks along with my little lady, and well I went in for a OB appointment today and the midwife measured me and I measured 30 wks and we've had this issue before with me measuring 2-3 wks farther along... So she had me get an Ultrasound to check how far along I was... The baby measures at 26 wks But the Midwife knows I have small babies, So the Midwifes measurment is 30 wks and my OB has kept me at 26 wks! So a independent nurse told me to keep both in mind!! THATS A WHOLE MONTHS difference!!! lol IDK who's to go with at this point so I'm confused!!! Which do u all think I should go with or should I just split the difference and go with 28 wks? LOL My DD looks great and everything looks fine and is there another way I can see how developed she is or is 4 wks too close to tell any difference!?

I always measured bigger too and my baby measured bigger too but he was perfect. I knew my lmp and was pretty sure of the date we conceived so I didn't worry too much. unless you have to have ac section, the best thing to do is wait for labor to happen on its own :-)

Yeah I have to have a c-section so I'm gonna go with my OB on this because he will be the one to deliver her! LOL

I measured 6 weeks ahead at one point, that measurement doesn't mean too much other than another check for if something is wrong. Go with the first given due date

I went 9 days past my due date and 3 different docs/midwives had estimated my son to be 7-8 lbs, he came out 5lb 9oz.... The midwife even told me that her estimate was just that and they weren't always very acurate.

Personally, my babies were always big, and I carried a lot of water, so I always measured farther along than what I actually was (37 weeks I was measuring well into the 40's) but my dr. always went with what the original growth ultrasound determined. Good luck this kind of confusion is never fun.

I would just be like either could be right you'll see when you have the baby

 hi and congratulations ... please keep in mind that an ultrasound and measuring is not always an accurate 100%. these come close to what is a supposed date. I would stay with date your obgyn gave you. Should you give birth a bit before or a bit after - no worries. As long as you are doing everything correct you will be fine. Enjoy your pregnancy. btw: I've worked in an OB/GYN office for many years the reason I stated what I stated. :-D

Your first ultrasound due date is the most accurate date you will get. I'd stick with the 26 weeks. This baby could be laying a weird way causing u to measure bigger, u could be carrying more fluid too. There's now telling.
