Not necessarily: Your due date is just an estimate and denotes when your baby's gestational age at 40w0d. Your baby's gestational age is best determined by 1) conception date if it was an IVF pregnancy or 2) ultrasound in the first trimester that is consistent with the date of your last menstrual period. If it was by a first trimester ultrasound consistent with LMP, at most it would be off by a couple of days.
