How accurate are late dating scans

Published: 30.06.2017

The sonographer actually said that my GP was naughty, and that everyone should have a dating scan regardless of knowing their lmp dates etc. Pregnancy — screening tests. And why does he wake so early?

I've just been for my 12 week scan and they have told me I am 15 weeks pregnant. Early scans make measuring very difficult as baby is so tiny.

Most dating scans are done with a trans-abdominal transducer and a fullish bladder. I don't think they can get it spot on even if they claim that environmental factors don't apply before 14 weeks, and every baby is exactly the same length on a specific day of pregnancy.

During the course of the pregnancy, every mother should have at least two scans. I have read lots of different views so am confused.

I'm 38 weeks and getting an ultrasound to see how big my baby is. How accurate is this?

How accurate are dating scans? I just hope baby is developing okay. Sonographer seemed very good and was from a reputable clinic so I think she knew her stuff but said it can be give or take 7 days.

The pregnancy dating scan.
