I was given a EDD of 9/11 by the date of my first day of last period, then we did an ultrasound and was given a due date of 10/25.

That's more then a month difference in due dates. At this time I am measuring too big for the 10/25 date and my Dr thinks I am gestational diabetic because of it. Could it be that the first date was more accurate then the one done by ultrasound?

Im 5'10 and starting weight was 200 lbs so I dont think its because there isnt a lot of room inside me. I have had people ask me if I was due at any time because how big I am right now and they all seemed shocked to learn I according to 10/25 still have 2 months left. The way I am feeling tho is like how I felt with my other two pregnancies.



I missed my period and went in for the test. So I couldnt have been that far a long when they did both the EED and Ultrasound. They both happened in the same week.

If the first ultrasound was done pretty early (like 8 or 9 weeks) it's going to be the accurate one. I know that with my firstborn the EDD based on my period put me at 16 weeks when I had the ultrasound, but the ultrasound showed only 9 weeks. (I felt very good about that, since I'd been charting and that's basically what I expected and was worried that the doctor wouldn't believe me, possibly induce way too early, etc)



With this pregnancy, I hadn't been charting so had no idea how far along I was, but thought maybe 6 weeks. The ultrasound showed 10 weeks, and now I'm 30 weeks and measuring right for that time frame. (this time the EDD based on my period and the due date from the ultrasound were only 3 days apart)



All that said, if I were you I'd get everything ready, just in case! I think it's normal to be uncomfortable at this stage already, even though you still have a ways to go. If you are short or really thin, the baby has nowhere to go but to stick out, so maybe that's why you're measuring so big? My cousin's wife is really small and petite, and when she gets pregnant she looks as big at 4 months as I do at 7 months! I'm tall, long-waisted, and broad across the shoulders, ribs, and hips, so the baby has lots of room to relax among my liver and kidneys and such, but on her, she doesn't have that much room to spare so the baby needs to be out there in front of her right away.

How many weeks were you when you had the ultrasound? And how many weeks were you when your doctor worked out your EDD? How many weeks after your last period did you find out you were pregnant? I find it odd that there is about 6 weeks between these estimates, and I'd have to go by the earlier date, but it depends on when you tested pregnant, etc. Ultrasounds aren't always accurate.

10/25 was the first ultrasound date given. My concern tho is I already feel as if she is quicken. I'm having trouble walking, pain in my pelvic bone, and I'm having more feelings of nails scraping my cervic and feeling of kicks and movements below my pelvic bone.
