They don't really have a lot to go off of when they're guessing a due date based on your belly's measurements, so it's not really an exact science. Not really surprising since the due date is just a guess even if you know exactly what day you conceived your baby on. It sounds like your belly is just bigger than what the doctor was expecting. Did she tell you a different due date? If you're measuring bigger, then your baby could be big, you could be further along than they originally thought, or you could be retaining extra water. A sonogram is a better way to tell since they can see the baby and tell how organs are developing etc. +/- two weeks isn't out of the realm of normal anyway. Lots of women have their babies that early/late. It sounds like you might want to be prepared to have the baby earlier than you expected, but I wouldn't set your mind on it yet. You'll be able to tell better as you get closer. Your cervix is going to be a better indicator. It has to soften and dilate before you can have the baby. And unless you're being induced or have a c-section you can't really plan too closely. I had one baby a day early and the other 10 days late. With the first I had no idea when she was conceived, so it was based on measurements and 1 sonogram at 16 weeks (she was 1 day early). The other I knew exactly (she was 10 days late). :)

She didn't tell me that I had a different due date that I just had a growth spout but my due date is Dec 15 so I had a feeling when she said that that I was going go early and this is my third so we will see and thanks so much you help me a lot
