Conception date

I just got back from the hospital and they measured my baby and said Im 9 weeks and 3 days, but this date is 3 days off. I tracked my period and when I had sex so I think my calender on my phone is more accurate than when they measured my baby.

Has anyone ever has this issues and of so what date did you go by ?

My doctors say I am due March 6th but I know the one time my husband and I had unprotected sex wastwo days before the conception date they have.  They prefer going by their ultrasounds than us lol.  But it is ok that 3 day difference wont hurt baby :-)

During my last pregnancy they gave me a due date 10 days earlier than my conception date. I didn't say anything till it was time to have my baby and they wanted to induce...I wanted her to come naturally. My doctor went with me and I went into labor exactly 10 days after my due date...
