    Lightbulb So confused, please help !

    Hey girls
    I need some help as I am completely confused!!
    Im not sure of my LMP but I'm pretty sure it's 28.7.12 so by LMP I am
    12 weeks and 3 days and my due date would be 4.5.13, on the day of me being 12 w and 3 days I had my nuchal translucency scan which told me I was actually 13 weeks and 2 days and my due date was 28.4.13 by ultrasound dates and EDD by ultrasound.
    Question is ??
    Do i go by my ultrasound dates and EDD as it seems to be more accurate as it scans baby and proper measurements and dating ???

    So confused as this is my first pregnancy :-/

    you should go with the scan dates, as you could have ovulated and implanted earlier then you expected :thumbup:

    No I don't think so. I'm pretty sure you only go by the the early dating scan U/S.

    I had one at 12 weeks and was measuring ahead too but my OB said it wasn't accurate for a dating scan only scans before 9 weeks were.

    Nope, most hospitals will go by LMP. 12 wk ultrasounds are not accurate for dating. Dating scans are normally done around 6-7 weeks. I measured ahead at 12 weeks, 20 weeks and 34 weeks and DD arrived 5 days late going off LMP dates!

    I am certain of my dates as I was charting my cycle at the time. I am 16 weeks now and had a scan at both 7 and 12 weeks - the 12 week one was less accurate.

    I believe babies grow at different rates so docs go off LMP

    My bubba was measuring 2 weeks ahead during the first 2 trimesters. I like you was so confused and was excited at the prospect at bubs coming a bit ealrier than planned but he did end up plateauing out somewhere towards the end of the 2nd trimester...he was and is still a very long baby.

    Might mean you are going to have a tall one like me

    At my NT scan I was measuring a week ahead as well but my earlier scan agreed with my LMP. We stuck with the LMP date. At the 20wks scan my measurements were tracking with LMP. So I probably would stick with your LMP. It confused me so much too when it happened to me.

    i think youve calculateed a week behind because my lmp was 27/07/2012 and im due on 3/05/2013 so the 13 and 2 days from your ultrasound sounds correct...
