    Does this happen often? And does it mean the 12 and 20 week scans were wrong or just that the baby is big so will be making an exit earlier? Aaand if the date is moved two weeks forward are you considered overdue two weeks after the new date or two weeks after the original date?

    I've never heard of them changing your due date after your dating scan.

    They say the earlier the scan, the more accurate. A scan at 8 weeks is much more accurate than a 20 week or later scan.

    I have never heard anyone having date changed.

    I had scan at 8 wks and the dating scan at 12wks - they went with the 8wks scan date.
