Isn't a 12 wk u/s accurate within 5-7 days? Don't the fetus measurements vary slightly and would show a difference of 11 days?

Since you are uncertain of your LMP then you use your ultrasound date as your gestational age on that day. You can then use a pregnancy wheel or an "app" that will calculate your due date. Congratulations and good luck. ...Read more
