I went in for my 22 week check-up. I am not very big have only gained about 12 lbs., but the doctor had me lay down to measure me. She gave me the due date that I have as Jan. 12th. Now after measuring me she said she thinks I could be 28 weeks pregnant. I am going in for another ultrasound in a week. But how is it possible for her to be that off. I thought I was due Jan. 9th to begin with based off my last period.

Yea. She chose the first due date based off an ultrasound too. It's just such a big difference. I also was only off my Birth Control for a month after finding out I was pregnant. My first child I was also on BC when I got pregnant.

It's really all an estimate. You may have fallen pregnant and still had a period. That could cause the dates to be that far out.
