Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Do we go by the ultra sound or our due date on our weekly changes??

5 answers
My due date is 5/18/2011 & I go up a week on wednesday of each week, but when I went in for my ultrasound they made it seem like it is actually Sunday according to the ultra sound. What should I go by Sunday or Wednesday or is it impossible to know exactly??

Go by the due date your doctor uses.  Your ultrasound dates can vary depending on how your baby is growing.  My first ultrasound my baby was tracking 3 days ahead, my latest ultrasound it was tracking 6 days ahead, but my doctor still uses my initial due date.  They told me unless my ultrasound shows a difference of 2 weeks they'll go by the due date they gave me.  And really due dates are just an estimated date of arrival for your baby.  It could come earlier, or later, don't hold yourself to the due date. 
Lissiemel is right.  :)I've got 3 due dates. lol The first one is from my LMP (Dec 5), then the second one is from my 9w u/s (Nov 29) and the third is from my 20w u/s (Dec 3)!  When people ask when I'm due, I tell them the last week of November/first week of December. :P
Mrs. C - how are you?  Is everything going okay?

Hi Lissie!  I'm doing well, thank you for asking. :)  The doctor said it was just Braxton Hicks.How are you? ^^
