The nurse at my dr office wrote on my proof of pregnancy letter my last period was 4/15 and it was actually 3/21, and then she says that when they did first ultrasound tech measured baby small...i said ok well whered u get 4/15 from just assuming, no either ur new tech measured wrong, or maybe baby is smaller but my period was last here def in march, so shes like I believe u im gonna ask about this, since my dr was out of the office she said she'll call me back...but im worried about this...because im further along then they are saying, when I thought they were going my the march date, they done made up a date in april...they didnt get that info from me!!
I would definitely be concerned, too. That's almost a months difference between 03/21 and 04/15! I would stick to your guns and let them now that your last period was 03/21 and you are such-&-such weeks along. Even if baby was measuring a bit small, it would be by like a week or something, not 3! It would make me nervous if my doctor's office was functioning like that, just nonchalantly putting dates down for women and stuff....
Yeah, if they can't get it straightened out I would definitely start interviewing other OB/GYNs. I wouldn't want them caring for me during pregnancy and labor if they are that disorganized and dependent on technology. If a tech measured your baby THAT far behind, I would have expected a 2nd ultrasound or something to confirm...not them just making up a new date.
Ok.so friday I talk to my dr myself and he said that regardless they go by the measurements on ultrasound, and I said ok well wat does that have to do with changing my dates of my period, he gonna say well that doesnt matter because we're always going by measurements! Ummm im not feeling that response
