Will the Doc move up my Due Date? - Open Forum-

Hello Ladies! I am wondering if any of you have been in the same situation and if you due date moved. I am due on May 9th, my DS is measuring 1 week bigger. I see my Doctor on Tuesday, do you think he would move my due date to May 2nd, or just keep it where it is?

My baby boy is measuring too big too....first the u/s tech said two weeks, then she changed it to about a week ahead. She said the doc most likely won't change my due date because 1. boys are bigger 2. both my DH and I are large (tall and "big boned"). I go back to doc next week so we'll see what he says...prolly get on me about what I'm eating...lol. :) Wishing you the best!

Thanks everyone! I think it was just wishful thinking lol. Any ideas on how to make the last stretch fly by? I had 4 friends and family just give birth within the last 10 days (ALL BOYS).. crazy I know :P

he may want to move it up, but at 34 weeks my dd measured 37, and the doc kept the due date the same

early u/s dates are more accurate. unlikely he will change your due date this late in the game. and what is a week when due dates can be off by 2...happpy pregnancy.

Dr.'s will usually keep the original due date.

At my early u/s DD measured 5 days early and doc said he does not change unless it is more than 1 week, Just knowing my due date was 5 days earlier could make me feel much better!!!!!  I am Due May 22.
