Thanks for writing in.

A difference of 2 weeks or 15 days in dates between ultrasound scan and last menstrual period calculations is within normal range. This is acceptable and your future ultrasound dates will be more accurate.

Any growth problem in fetus will be assessed from your present ultrasound pregnancy dates.

A difference in dates exceeding 8 weeks or two months is something that needs to be double confirmed.

Hope this helps.

The Ultrasound EDD is more important than how we calculate by Naegle's formula. I think you should not be worried at this point. You are progressing very well. Stay with positive attitude. Regular mild exercise and good diet are very important. Please follow up with your treating Obstetrician ( Doctor ).
