    Im unsure what to stick with really .. so im hoping to just get advice off other people what there either doing or think is right to do :shrug:

    My midwife estimated i was due on the 24th january
    then at my first scan they estimated 22nd january
    so thats only 2 days i spose so not a big difference but nice to know a certain date that you can think is your due date if people understand me lol

    But i have my 20week scan on friday..
    so do they change your date again here ? :shrug:
    if so im guessing it can only go forward as my dating scan would be what bubs was at 12weeks ..

    what do i do keep my dating scan date 22nd january
    or if they change it at 20week scan should i go with that one ? hmm

    My baby's estimated age changed from the first scan at 8 weeks (March 15) to the second scan at 11 weeks (March 13). It was also a 2 day difference. My midwife said, they just keep the EDD from the first scan because it's not much difference.
    My ticker below is based on my OV date (Mar 17), which I personally use because I consider it more accurate. If I based it on my EDD from the first scan, I'd be 12 weeks today.
    I believe the 'dating' is less accurate at the 20 week scan anyway, so they won't change the date.

    Hello Darling,

    I would go with the date of your 12 week scan...Midwifes date is just based on LMP which isnt always right.

    If it changes alot and 20 week scan then change it but otherwise i would definately go with 22nd jan!!!

    Hope your doing well....bet your soooo excited about your scan??? ive still got 2 weeks to wait!!!!

    My EDD was changed by a week at my 12 week scan....I had no idea when I concieved but they dated me 13+3, due on 20th December, my midwife had guessed (from my limited info!) at my booking appointment.

    I had my 20week scan & it didn't go well (LO was bein a bugger & not moving) and the sonographer couldn't be bothered tbh! Everything was fine in terms of size. I doubt very much they'll ever change your EDD after the 12w scan.

    At my second anomoly scan (at 23weeks) LO was sized at 25week!! I have to go back for growth scans every month......but am still doubting they'll change my date!! I have a strong feeling the LO will be here before the 20th Dec but I'll just have to wait & see.

    and i cant wait :)! its going slow though everyday is like a big wait haha im so impaitent its unreal! but i feel for you 2 more weeks! itll fly by though like iv said it always goes slow when its couple days from it :p
    hope your well Jox :)

    Hi, even then if the dating scan is BIGGER they dont always change it, like my dates differ about 10 days according to LMP and Scan I just decided to relax and go with what eva.... lol.... thus baby is big for dates...

    I use the scan date as my predictor but am actually a week ahead... enjoy trying to work this out...

    I think my best bet is to stay with my 12week scan i know my 20week scan isnt going to go well either i was furious at my 12week scan as i didnt have a clue what was going to happen and i was nervous and she didnt explain nothing to me i feelt lost :( and if i have the same sonographer i wont be happy she was just snobby and didnt care as it was near the end of her day :mad: i just hope baby is moving this time so i see more and if babys not moving they will let me walk about for 5mins or drink more like leaflet says you can do .. but my mum is going with me this time and she wont let them get away with anything :p just want to see baby moving and not have a rubbish experiance really and i wana have a high % what bubs is boy or girl so im hoping for a nice view lol!

    was your scan at Kings Mill??? our sonographer was lovely, lady in about her early 30's, spoke to her quite abit as she was on about the fact she had been trying herself for nearly a year...im hoping to get the same woman and maybe she will have had her BFP!!!

    i think they just keep it at the due date of your 12 week scan not too sure, my EDD was 21st of jan then i went for my scan date and was told baby is 13+3 but then the woman worked my date out wrong and said i was due on the 19th but if baby was 13+3 im due on 17th but it on all my notes now that im due on the 19th BUT IM BLOODY NOT HAHA so im keepin it as 17th cause silly cow couldnt even work it out properly lol x x

    i will send you my number on private message so we can keep in touch.

    I just cant wait to start putting stuff in babys room. said we will wait till about 32 weeks to do all that tho. will get room decorated before then tho. got our pram and i love it but it is at MIL's so dont reallly get chance to see it!!! got some clothes but not too many. everyone keeps saying 'dont buy too much coz other people will buy for you' and im just thinking its my child, i will buy what i like!!

    xxx

    Weve decided with number 2 that we will find out what s/he is and just have the surprise this time.

    I cant even think about the room yet :( as i still live at home with my dad.. but hes on about moving further into nottingham end cause of work and my sister goes uni down there so its all better so i have to wait to see what he decides to do which is annoying as i dont want to be rushing :(

    and all my bits and bobs are all at my mums appartment but my room there is really big and can store everything in there til iv sorted my self out at home id go live there but apparently land lord only allows 2 people in the place even though it can fit 3 cause theres double bed room and another double bed room its annoying lol.. and my family have all told me the same about dot buy too much baby will only grow out of it all and youll have wasted money lol and then family will buy you lots of stuff aswel lol

    and that sounds actually better surprise to start with then 2nd baby find out cause then you can keep stuff from 1st baby if its same gender .. but ah well second wont be coming yet for me lol
