Due date?

I am measuring two weeks ahead of my due date and my lmp is the same as what I am measuring but hospital scan showed me to be 2 week less. Has this happened anyone else? Baby is also measuring 2 weeks ahead at 32 week growth scan.. Hospital won't go by my lmp because I was on the pill?

Re: Due date?

  • Um, what?

  • 2 weeks either way really doesn't make a hug difference. Few babies are actually born on their due dates. My date based on lmp is a week ahead of my ultrasound due date and last week I measured a week behind. I'm not worried because babies o their own thi

  • I measured 2 weeks ahead at my last growth u/s 9 weeks ago.  I haven't had one since.  I am measuring big at the OBs office, but he isn't concerned either.  Early u/s are the most accurate, so they are still sticking with that due date

  • I'm exactly the same. Based on my LMP I'm 2 weeks farther along, and I have been measuring ahead lately. I'm not too worried about it, though, because my doctor is inducing around 38 weeks for other reasons, so I feel like it will all work out in the end.

  • I thought that's how they give you a edd was by your last period. Unless they gave you and ultra sound at 89 weeks to figure it out.

  • Midwife won't go by my lmp because she said I would have had to been off the pill 3 months for them to go by that.. I know the 1st ultrasound is the most accurate as she explained there's a big difference between foetuses at an early age but just find it
  • Ya that's what midwife said just thought it was strange that by my dates and fundal height were two weeks ahead
