I dont remember if I had my period in June, but Im almost certain I didnt...My period is always irregular and my doctors have came up with a due date of March 29th 2013...When I went the the hospital for spotting on August 17th they told me I was 7 weeks 5 days..but a few days later on August 22nd, I saw my OB and she said I was 9 weeks...Also just 2 days ago I saw my OB again and they told me I was 12 weeks...I would like to know what my due date is



Also if they say Im 12 weeks, do they really mean 10 weeks or 14?

Well I heard that the earliest time you see a doctor..what ever date they give you is most accurate..is that true?

Generally the earliest date is most accurate and the earliest ultrasound is the most accurate :)

Was these guesses from ultrasounds or was it from your lmp? I say ultrasounds are way more accurate then your lmp.

Okay....well Iv came to figure out I was wrong about me not having my period in June....I did have one and the day I started it was June 18th....I looked up a conception calendar and it says I conceived July 2nd and that my due date is March 25th....does that sounds right to you?

Well, just remember when you get to the end and you are totally fed up that there could be any number of discrepancies with your due date. So on that basis, don't be surprised if you come earlier than they say, but it could also be right at the expected time. At the end of the day, a difference in estimates of a couple of weeks won't make a huge difference. Bubs will tell you when he/she is ready :)

See thats what I think....I think Im at least 2 weeks more than what they're telling me....but Im not so sure, but Iv heard hospital sonograms are more reliable then you doctors sonograms, but Im also not so sure about all that now either....

But I do appreciate it and Il definitely go with the flow and il definitely keep avoiding the stress.

There's really never a way of knowing for sure. I was given so many different dates right through my pregnancy with my youngest, as much as 2 months difference, simply because she was a really small baby. She ended up born full term as a 5lb baby, which is why it confused the heck out of them. I knew exactly when I conceived her, so I stuck with that date.



Symptoms come and go. Don't worry if you don't have them right now. They checked the baby a couple of days ago, and its fine :) Just go with the flow, look after yourself, and it will happen when it happens!

Yeah...I just would really love to know for sure, but I guess there is not real way of knowing....Another thing I was curious about was if it's normal that Iv lost all my symptoms 3 weeks ago

Yeah, that could add up to a very late cycle pregnancy, and it depends on the length of your cycle. There are so many factors - that's why it is only an estimate. If an ultrasound showed 12 weeks, that's what you should use. Measurements and milestones are most accurate in the first trimester on a week by week basis, so it would be pretty close.

Taylor, if you are 12 weeks pregnant, your period MAY have been more towards the end of May. It just depends on when within your cycle you conceived. It could have happened towards the end of your cycle, which is why your baby is showing as 12 weeks.

At 12 weeks, ultrasounds are pretty accurate. Just remember that a due date is only an Estaimated Delivery Date. It isn't an exact science. Very few babies are actually born on the due date given to them. All those dates you have given seem to add up. If you had the ultrasound and they told you 12 weeks, go with that.
