HOW CAN MY DATES CHANGE?
According to my LMP, I am now 18 weeks. My Gynae's scans also say the same according to the measurements. Yesterday I went for a 4-D scan and the lady said I'm 16 weeks and two days and that it can only be off by a few days, not two weeks. This is confusing me as I feel like I'm going backwards. Can this be wrong because if it's correct then I found out I was pregnant at 3 weeks (instead of 5) and first felt movement at 12 weeks (instead of 14 weeks). I am concerned as I'll have to have a caeser as I did with my first one and I'd hate to have it too early, or too late and go into labour first. Surely every baby can't measure exactly the same right throughout pregnancy? Doesn't make sense. Please help! Thank you.

Go with your dates and your doctor's scans.
