Re: Due date changes...what do you trust?

I goby my LMP. I'm pretty confident about that. With my last pregnancy they said the baby measured 1 month too small according to a U/S and induced me early because evidently something was wrong with him . He turned out to be just fine. Almost 6 pounds.
U/S measurements are notorious for being off.
I'm also afraid of them putting the due date earlier, because with two pregnancies I was late (10days and 8 days).

I'd go by what they say. Early U/S are fairly accurate. LMP isn't so much - it just uses a basic 28 day cycle, and very few women actually have a 28 day cycle. Plus, we all ovulate at different times. LOL. Crazy stuff, I tell ya.

Well, late U/S measurements are. Early are actually quite accurate.

I think I would still go by the later date... just in case the u/s is right and your baby is not quite 34 weeks, you wouldn't want to birth at a hospital that is not equipped to help if your LO is born that early and needs the NICU. I'm sorry you're so worried! Just hold on until Tuesday!!

I think I would go by the early ultrasound, but then again I have no real idea. Luckily for me my LMP and my earliest ultrasound were only 1 day off.

I'd go by the ultrasound date especially since they did one at six weeks early ultrasounds are supposed to be pretty accurate. I always know my lmp but not necessarily when I o and I was breast-feeding when I got pg (both times) so I knew that I could have o'd early or later than normal.
