My midwife said they shouldn't go with the gestation from the second scan because it isn't reliable, but because no-one from gynecology recorded the gestation, she has to go by the measurements at the next scan. So my due date was march 5th, and is now Feb 28th.
That's a joke! Total bureaucracy. They CAN change your due date manually on the system, and they should do it based on your earlier scan. At the end of pregnancy that week could potentially matter! They could be talking about inducing you when you know you're barely overdue yet etc... ridiculous!
That's what I'm thinking too, but she insisted she can't change it because theres no paperwork from the first scan. I don't really like my midwife tbh, but not sure who I need to speak to about not having to see her any more 🙈

I can't stand the midwife I saw at 16 weeks but I'm hopeful that I won't see her again. I remember with my son there were so many on the "team" I was assigned to that I never saw the same midwife twice.
But you 100% have the right to request to be seen by someone else, if you do have to see her again I'd ring the maternity ward if I were you and just ask what you'd need to do to ask not to be seen by that midwife.

I didn't see the same midwife twice with my daughter, but my GP surgery have their own designated midwife Apparently, so it'll be here at every appointment. The thought of her doing a sweep etc if I go overdue doesn't sit well with me at all. I'll give my maternity unit a call and she what the advise

No they went by my last bleeding which was January 7th but it was very light like not even 2 days. And at the 22 week ultrasound they said they was just gonna go by my January 7th bleeding and that I was due October 14th. But my last normal bleeding was December 3rd and I had intercourse December 11-13th and I was wondering if maybe I got pregnant from sex then... BUT if I did then I would be 42-43 weeks pregnant right now and not 38 weeks

Were you measuring roughly in the right percentiles for 22 weeks? I think yes, they would've noticed if you'd been four weeks out and you're probably 38 weeks now since that lines up with (1) the bleed (even though it was light) (2) the 22 week ultrasound and (3) your fundal height now. Can't you talk to a doctor about this and explain your concerns though?

Itís unlikely to be measuring 36cm for fundal height and be 43-44 weeks pregnant. Itís unlikely in general that you wouldnít have gone into labor by 43 weeks. If youíre that worried, you should call and get an Appt.

And they didn't give out percentiles at my appointment. I called back and ask what they were and the woman said that "no percentiles were noted" soooooo idk? At the end of the scan the dr just said everything looked fine and I could leave.

What country are you in?
How come you didn't get a first trimester dating scan?
