anyone ever had a wrong due date?

Someone told me that when you get an ultrasound the doctor may tell you you're not as far along as you think. You know you're supposed to count from your last period. That's disappointing . I'm suppose to be 8 weeks. I have an appt next week but I'll be devastated if they say no you're only 6 weeks.

Why would you be devastated to be a couple weeks behind what you thought?

When my cousin was pregnant with twins they were a month off.she was further along then they expected. Even the ultrasounds were mixed dates. All they could tell her was be prepared because they couldn't get the dates right

I had my estimated due date change with my first 3 times. It didn't change when I conceived just when they estimated he would be born. Based on first day of lmp he was due 26 June, then at i think it was his 20wk scan they said 19 June, then due to complications he was born a month before that. One were another we knew we would have a baby within the 42wks. Good luck!

I feel my due date is off by 2 weeks.  Going from last pd. I should be 32 weeks. But my dr. Is saying I'm only 30. And it's been like this since the beginning.  I was only worried about it at 28 weeks Cuz i needed to get a rhogham injection and those are suppose to take place at 28 weeks which if i was right i would of actual been 30 weeks. But just know when ur baby is ready.. he or she is ready. No matter what dr. Says. Just keep positive!

I was given July 19 then July 10th here it is the 12th and still waiting or her to make her arrival. The dates are just estimates 42 weeks is a full term pregnancy but the baby could come anywhere between 37-42 weeks and still they consider them full term because they can survive on their own outside the womb from the point. Not sure why they give exact dates :(

I got three different due dates with my son, November 5, October 30 and October 23. He made his appearance on October 20 and based on his placenta he was close to two weeks overdue! So they aren't always exact.

With this little one I have received two due dates; July 13th and July 16th so we shall see:)

I am 13 weeks my doctor gave me a due date of 1/19 but when I had a sono at 11 weeks they said I measured 4 days ahead and estimated due date 1/15 not much of a difference but its exciting knowing u could be further than you think....being earlier would be fine to because at least there is a beautiful baby growing in there :)

I had different due dates as well, I have no clue what was being counted at all. I remember getting the date Aug 28th and just used that. Come to find out thats the most accurate time. Once your baby get bigger the dates will change more.

With my first going from my last period I was due August 14th but when they did the ultrasound my due date changed to August 26th, with my second going from my last period I was due October 7th but when they did the ultrasound my due date changed to October 17th, and then with this baby he measured right at my due date from my last period so my due date has stayed August 30th this whole time
