Is there a possibility where doctors can get how far along you are wrong?

— An ultrasound is the best estimate.

— Usually an ultrasound in the first trimester is the most accurate. But yes they definitely can get it wrong because due dates are just estimates anyway. All babies grow at different rates and no 2 pregnancies are the same.

— See that's what's weird. Very first ultrasound I was given 7 weeks and December 22nd as my due date. When I went to my OBGYN three weeks later she said I'm 10 weeks And my due date is January 4th. But this Friday I'll be 20 weeks which is the halfpoint of pregnancy, which would mean that my due date is off or how far along I am.

— That helps alot, thank you!
