    At my 12 week dating scan they said our baby is due on June 16th. We went for one of those 4D scans last week when i was 28 weeks exactly but they said he was measurig at 29 weeks 4 days, giving him a due date of June 5th. It was a private clinic not at the hospital where the other scans and they said to me to keep with the due date i was given by the midwife, but now im really confused. Could he just be a bit bigger than the average baby at this stage or could i be due sooner than i think? Has anyone else had this and if you have, which date was more accurate?

    Thanks

    12 week scans are accurate because at that age they grow so much per day/week, after 14 weeks I think they just grow how they feel!

    If my 28 hospital growth scan changed my due date then I'll be 4 weeks overdue now haha!

    The most accurate to your actual due date is scans from 6-14 weeks. After that, they aren't as accurate, usually ranging from 2-4 weeks off from your actual due date.

    Go with your original due date as dates can vary later on. I had a scan at 30 weeks (in hospital) and my baby is measuring nearly 34 weeks, yet the hospital won't change my due date. I have just been told he will be big xx
