    Help on Due Date...

    New here... I'm trying to figure out which due date I should go by. Last week I had my first ultrasound, which I have to say was the coolest thing ever! But anyways... at that time I thought I was at 12 weeks 2 days from the due date my doctor gave me based on my last period (EDD 1/9/13); however, during the ultrasound my baby measured at 13 weeks 4 days which gives me a due date of (12/31/12). Should I stick with the original date of January 9 or go by the ultrasound? My doctor wasn't at the ultrasound and I don't go back until January 27th to ask him.

    Thanks!!

    Hello and welcome. That is awesome on your first ultrasound. I am 21 weeks and I had my first ultrasound at 12 and another one at 20 and it is the coolest thing to see. Anyways I would go by the due date of the ultrasound. Of course no due date is right on but if the baby is measuring bigger than he or she is most likely farther along than you knew. When they go by your last period they predict you ovulated 2 weeks after but many women including myself ovulate early. For instance my due dat is November 16th with going by my last period but since we were trying to conceive I know I ovulated a week earlier than what I would have. If I were you I would go by the ultrasound due date. Good Luck!!
