Answer: You must follow your scan date. In your ultra sound it is mentioned about weeks and also known as gestational count. Gestational count are more accurate than lmp because lmp indicates a pregnancy on any day during entire month Whereas the gestational count is done and driven by your babys growth. Always a +/- of 7 days is considered when estimating EDD. Take care.

Question: Hi.. According to LMP gestational age is 7 weeks and 3 days. But according to EP scan, gestational age is 7 weeks 5 days. Is this normal?
Answer: Most of the times the gestational age and scan age differs.It is quite normal. Most of us doesn't remember LMP exact date. Sometimes the ovulation starts internally and we got LMP after or before 2 days. So this may leads to difference in age. Need not worry about this. As soon as you are stepping towards 9th month the EDD will change.
