Confused About Dates

Confused - November 20

Hi, according to my LMP I am 11 weeks today, but when i went for my scan they took 5 days of me, which would mean that I am 11 weeks on Friday coming... Do i now go from the scan dates or stick to my LMP.

I am having the opposite problem. According to my LMP I am ten weeks today. According to my ultrasound I am 10 wks 4 days. Don't know the answer.

I wouldn't worry to much at this early stage, a 4-5 days difference is quite normal as unborn babies all develop at different rates, no babies are ever the same, with my first child they took a 6 days off me at my 12 week scan but i was sure of my lmp so i just kept quiet and knew i was right, at my 20 week scan they gave me the 6 days back and said my babies growth was just a little slower in the beginning, it will even itself out over the 9 months.

I am in the same boat as you and was told that as long as the scan shows the baby is +/- one week of your LMP, they won't change your dates. Since you are in that range, I'd go with whichever you feel better about. I'm sticking with my LMP b/c it's easier for me since that's how I've been thinking since the beginning.

When you are given a due date by the doctor...it's only an approximate day. Normally a healthy baby will be born two weeks before or after that date. Babies develop at different speeds so just go by your LMP.
