Don't know what my dd will be. Everytime I go in for an u/s they tell me I'm further ahead. First my due date was Aug 30 then the 23 now they saying maybe 21 and my family is like because he so low n very very active I will deliver early n I'm like early like how early? Ughh the whole month of August I'm gone be on pin n needle. My last two pregnancies I delievered exactly 6 days early, n since I have never really had labor pains I will be freaking out over every lil ache. I would like to know a round about time but I guess I will deal cause he will come when he wants too.

My doctor's office won't even change your due date unless you're measuring 2 weeks ahead.

DS measured 2 weeks ahead at some point, they did an u/s and turns out he wasnt that big afterall. Then he measured 1 week ahead for pretty much the rest of the pregnancy and was born at 7lb 14oz so not too big at all.

If I were you I'd stick closer with the due date from your original dating ultrasound- they say the original one is the most accurate. That way you're not on edge all month! lol

Yeah the first ultrasound is the most accurate for dating purposes. I'd probably stick with that date

Yup. I agree. After 12 weeks dating is so inaccurate AND measurements can be off by a pound in either direction.

Yep, my doctor won't change my due date either, even though this one has measured ahead the entire time.

Yeah the other ladies. The other ultrasounds aren't as accurate as the first. My doctor never changed my due date, even this time when I always measure ahead. DS came after his due date too
