I had tons of ultrasounds when I had my daughter (there were a few complications) and every single time, the estimated due date was different. So was the estimated size at birth.

Generally, the earlier the ultrasound, the more accurate, simply because the growth markers are so much more distinguishable, but it can also depend on your technician. And after all, it IS only an estimate. Two weeks either way is not that unusual.

Probably somewhere between the two ultrasound dates. All dates are just estimates. Ultrasounds are just guesses there is a margin of error, so it will probably be around the two dates you got. I had a friend that needed a lot of ultrasounds each ultrasound gave her a different due date.
