    Hello,

    my LMP was 4/29/13, so I should be (as of yesterday) 7wks, 3days. I went to my first OB appt yesterday and they said that I measured 8wks 5days...this would make my last period 4/20/13. I have an app that I keep track of all my periods, so I know I am correct on 4/29/13...so, now instead of my due date being 7/3/14, they moved me to 1/25/14...what date should I go by? I know its not a huge difference, but I like to be as accurate as possible.
    Me (31) DH (32) - DS 7/31/11 - DD 7/18/12 - BFP 3rd baby due 2/3/14

    Take the Poll

    Should I go off my LMP of 4/29 - due date 7/3/14 or what the doctor says - due date 1/25/14?
    • 7/3/14 (LMP 4/29/13)
    • 1/25/14 (which would make my LMP 4/20/13)

    after looking at the u/s again, it looks like the OB measured the baby wrong...instead of head to rump, she went a little further above the head..I wonder if that makes a difference...

    I wouldn't worry. There was one point during my second pregnancy when my DD was measuring a week ahead. The technician asked if I was sure about my last period date (I was since I was writing them down on a calendar) and if I had gotten any negatives before I got my positive (nope). The baby may have just had a growth spurt right before the ultrasound.

    They didn't change my due date so I would go off your due date based on your LMP of 4-29-13.

    due date 7/3/14 would make you like 14 months pregnant.
