Okay, so I am 20 weeks and 1 day now. But I went to my ob and they told me I was due on December 18 but recently I went to the hospital and was told my due date was December 15, which one would be more accurate?

It's perfectly apprpriate to give birth two weeks either side of the due date, it's only three days difference. My guess, and take this a my being silly, you'll have the baby on 16, december, right at midnight.
Really, it doesn't make that much difference, you could end up having a Christmas baby, which wouldn't be a bad thing.

3 days isn't going to change. And besides, less than 5% of women actually give birth on their due date. You could go at 38 weeks or 42 weeks and still have a healthy, normal sized baby that's born 'on time'.
