Could my babygirl be older than my ultrasound states?

During the first 2-3 months of my pregnancy I was a heavy cigarette & marijuana smoker, unaware that I was pregnant because of irregular periods. I've only had one ultrasound done where they told me that my baby which I thought was 25 weeks old was really 23weeks and 6days old. Could my heavy smoking during the first months have caused her to be smaller but she is really older & my due date is closer?

We can not tell you if your child is older or not because none of us here are doctors or techs that run the machines. What I can tell you is that more likely its a guess because to be honest no one doctor has ever been able to tell a woman when she first conceived and what the due date is going to be. Even the way they tell you to figure it out yourself if you know when your last menstral cycle was etc is only a guess and if you are not a regular person then it makes it that much harder. Also when they measure you at the monthly checkups, those measurements are a average and guess as well as to how far along you are. Smoking can cause some issues in the first months of pregnancy but I can not tell you if it did or not. And usign Marijuana is not good for a baby either.
