|12-8-2010 - Resetting Dates
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Turns out that my due date will remain 23 December (instead of adjusted date of 13 December). I am not annoyed by this at all. I expected it, to be honest. I knew all along that baby measuring ahead did not mean the due date will change. Yesterday at the scan I talked with my gyne about this and have to agree with his logic: if you are taller than another person it does not mean you are older . LOL.
I have been wondering about this. Even though baby has been measuring ahead all the time, did this mean everything else is growing 'faster'? Answer is no. I know this is logical and that I skipped ahead on my own, but it becomes so confusing when dates are different at scans than where you are in relation to your LMP or due date.
After much consideration I have decided to set my due date back on all my tickers to the original due date. Instead of changing the progress (in weeks) on my blogs I already wrote, I will just update the headings with the LMP at that point. The emotions relating to the progress won't change, but it does mean I will be celebrating a few weeks for the 2nd time.
The reality is that I will be 'set back' with 10 days (deducting the 10 days with which baby was ahead) to 21 weeks.

- Thursday, 12 Aug I think you are right to do this. Hopefully you won't go overdue now ;-) lol x utopianite
- Thursday, 12 Aug I've set my ticker for 21 weeks (even though according to my lmp I'm due the 13th or 14th). I haven't had a dating scan yet but don't trust those anyway. Towards the end you'll be happier if you don't go "over" your date. The baby will come whenever he's ready, regardless of your edd. :-) As long as you're pretty sure of when you got pregnant, go by that and not what the doctor says. :-) Sounds like you may be having a decent sized little man!

- Thursday, 12 Aug I had the same problem. They won't usually change the dates because the early scans are most accurate since all babies grow at different rates. I measured 2-3 weeks bigger everytime I went to the doctor. I had an elective induction at 39.1 weeks pregnant and my son was 8.11 lbs. So he just was a big baby all along. Maybe you will be having a big ol' baby too!!!!
