January 2013 Moms

Anyone else get a new EDD?

We had out a/s on Wednesday and found out we are having a baby girl and that everything looks great! YAY!! The tech said that she is measuring about 2 weeks ahead about 24 weeks instead of 22 and that she was going to change my due date. So now we are expecting on Jan 1 instead of Jan 11! We go back in 4 weeks to confirm (which is also fun because I didn't expect to see her again until she gets here). Did anyone else get a new due date after their a/s?

    Normally an u/s this late in pregnancy isnt very accurate for dating. Our LO was measuring a little over a week ahead and I begged to leave my EDD alone. I dont want to be forced to have an induction because they move my EDD up based on an u/s that is known to not be very accurate with dating....

    Congrats to my GP Sister from another mister Bruinsbabe!!

  • Do you have any reason to think your original due date was wrong? LMP, early dating u/s?

    I side eye doctors who change EDD based on just an u/s later in the pregnancy.

  • We also found out that we are measuring 2 weeks ahead, but my doctor does not believe in changing dates past the first tri.  As PP said, late US are not reliable for dating.

    This.  Ugh this drives me crazy.  Do not let them start talking induction come January 1.

    I agree with not changing bc my induction was pushed because they were flipping out about the "Date passing" when all things were looking great.  Just my opinion based on my experience.. 

  • I have no reason to believe me original due date is wrong. It was the u/s tech who changed the date and not my Dr. I plan on asking her about it at my next appointment in 3 weeks. I had thought about the induction thing, it is a concern to me and on that I will be asking about. I do not want to be induced and esp if there is a chance that im really only 38-40 weeks at the time and there is no actual reason. I would like LO to stay in there as long as possible to develop as much as she can (assuming there is no risk). Ive also wondered if my baby is just big! DH is 6'5" and was something like 21" and over 9 pounds when born. Thank you ladies for your input! I will definitely be talking to my Dr. about this!

  • I was measuring 8 days ahead and they left my due date the same.  I agree with the PP - I would not start talking induction until later.

  • I wish my OB did this. He goes by my LMP (1/12), when I know that I O'd a week late and my dating u/s at 6 weeks showed that the due date should be (1/17). I brought it up to him, but he still won't change it. I am so annoyed because I do NOT want to be induced.

  • My OB has my due date 1/13. MFM (who, I believe, refuse to believe my OB simply because he worked for a different hospital) has my dd at 1/18. I'm not delivering with MFM, so 1/13 it is. Though my RCS is scheduled for 12/28.

  • We also found out we were measuring a week ahead but our u/s technician said she's definitely not changing my due date. That normally means nothing at this stage and we know for sure when i conceived and when my LMP was.

    I also agree with this. Just don't let them talk you into an induction based off this new due date.

    YUP, THIS!!! Most Dr's will tell you that whatever is the earliest u/s you get, thats the date they'll keep. Once you get further along, things like genetics become a factor and can affect your EDD (bc if baby is going to be a big baby, its not going to change the gestation age of the fetus. he/she will just measure further ahead bc they are bigger than the average). When they are 6weeks old, a 6wk fetus looks exactly the same as any other 6wk fetus. So its VERY accurate. case in point...My son's RCS was my actual due date (my dr doesnt like to do the 1-2weeks ahead of time so that in the CHANCE of a miscalculation, baby doesnt get evicted too early). The day i went in for my RCS, i was already in active labor!!! Now THATS accurate lol.

  • My son was a big baby.  He was 9lb 13oz and 22" long when he was born.  My husband is 6'1" and I'm 5'8" and the OB took into account when doing the u/s that we are both tall.

    Definitely speak to the OB about that.

  • Did the u/s tech change your edd or did your dr? When I go to the u/s place, their records show Im a week ahead of what I am based on the measurments at the nt scan, but with my dr my edd didnt change and thats what matters.

    Like pp's said, I hope they dont try to induce you based on the new date.

    This exactly. Our LO measured a little over a week ahead, but I'm 100% positive about my O day. Thankfully, they did not want to change my EDD. DH is 6'1 and I'm 5'9. He was a 10 pounder, I was 7.6. I think we've just realized we're probably going to have a big baby.
