Well, my last post said I was due on March 20 (based on my LMP), but I had an ultrasound yesterday and the doctor said I'm only 6 weeks along based on the size. This is totally possible because my cycles are very irregular. So the new due date is April 5. Has anyone had the same thing happen? Also, we saw the heartbeat, and she said that once there is a heartbeat, the survival rate is 95%! I guess the first trimester thing is conservative.

I don't know about if my due date is right or not!! I haven't gotten an ultrasound and am not supposed to get one until between 18-20 weeks!! Hopefully, if anything, the due date will be sooner than expected but I think it is about right. I can see how this would happen with irregular periods though. I've always had a regular cycle. Sorry, I guess I am not much of a help!!

Well when I went to the doctor they said I was due about March 26. But my ultrasound is saying March 20. So they said they are gonna go with my period.

Well, on the bottom... as you can see... I'm like 37 weeks and still not too sure about my due date. I have very irregular periods and my grandfather passed away right before it should've been time for my period and I was so upset that I really don't remember when my last period was... I do know that when I found out I was just pregnant enough to barely show in a blood test (it didn't show in a urine test or HPT)! And so they guessed Sept. 6 as my due date, then when I had my ultrasound they told me they thought I was a week earlier than they had guessed putting me due around August 31. So I really have NO IDEA when to expect my little girl to be here!

Most people in fact only 5 % of all preggos deliver on their due date. Due dates never seems to be right. the only way to be really really sure is to know exactly when your last period started and ended and keep track of 3 previous periods so they can get an accurate avergae cycle. Most women don't do that.

As you get closer to the time your doctor will know whether or not your due date is accurate. Each time he/she measures the size of your uterus it should be the size of how many weeks along you are. Unless you are having a big big baby and then it can be off. :D
