Anyone know how accurate the sonograms are for actual due dates when done around 20 weeks?

My tech said taht based on the babies size I am only 18 weeks, not 20, but everything I have read says taht 9 oz is normal for a 20 week fetus. I am just a bit confused. Plus she couldn't get a good pic of the heart, and gave us crappy pics of the baby. I have always had great techs before.

This is my 4th baby. The first 3 were all pretty random as well. It just made me worry. The others were all estimated to be bigger. I know when i had my last period. based on the tech it was the 23rd of dec and i know that it was the 9th. Maybe she was just new or something. Just wanted a few opinions. Thank you all so much.

On my first at 12 weeks she was coming in at 16-17 weeks but my dates were perfect and she came two days before my due date.On my second i had my first scan at 19weeks 4days and it matched perfect to the scan dates.She came overdue at 41weeks.

my tech said i was due the 24th of august and i ended up going into labor on the 13th of august. which was 2 weeks early with my first son. They also said that i was farther along bc of how big the baby was but my son was 9 lbs and 3 ozs when born. so i had a big baby.hope this helps.

Well they do measure the baby but babies are always different sizes, so honestly your estimated due date is just that ...and estimate. I always tell moms not to rely to heavily on it.. its usually with in a few weeks..Unless you know exactly when you ovulated and convieved you really wont ever know the exact date... even then everyone gestates for a different amount of time..

Your baby will come when its good and ready. The due date is just an aprox date.

The pics might not have been the best, but if that's what their measurements say, you are probably around 19 or 20 weeks.
