Best Answer

If you are in the early stages of pregnancy &-8 weeks it will only be off by a day or two. By twelve weeks may be 3 days, 18/20 weeks 4-5 days. From then on it becomes more difficult as babies end up different sizes. Not at an early stage. Are you further on than you thought or not as far on as you thought? Give a few more details and I can tell you a bit more.

Well I had an ultrasound at 13 weeks and it was not very accurate. and it will not be able to tell the sex of your baby. Oh by the way, depending on what kind of insurance you have and what hospital you are at you may not get another ultrasound. An ultrasound at 7 weeks is extremely accurate, within 2-3 days. At 13 weeks it will be accurate within about 5 days. It can certainly not be off by a month.

If someone has an ultrasound and it indicates 7 weeks pregnant from conception date is it possible for the ultrasound to be off by 4 weeks and be 11 weeks pregnant?

No it is not possible to be 11 weeks instead of 7 weeks pregnant. Ultrasound is reliable for dating within a 2 week error. So it is possible for you to be 4 weeks or 9 weeks but not 11 weeks. However dating is usually based on the last menstrual period unless there hasn't been one.

Had an ultrasound scan and the result was 7 weeks 1 day at this stage in the pregnancy could the scan prediction be as much as 3 weeks out meaning that i would have been 10 weeks 1 day?

At 7 weeks it's basically impossible for the ultrasound to be that far off. It's normal to be 3-5 days off max.

How off can an ultrasound be that estimated your last menstrual period the same at eight weeks and twelve weeks?

I think this is what you mean. For example. On 28th December the ultrasound said you were 8 weeks pregnant, then on 25th January it said you were 12 weeks pregnant. This would be accurate to within 4-5 days each time.

Can a ultrasound be ten weeks off if you think your 12 weeks and ultrasound reads your 22 weeks?

Ultrasounds are fairly accurate - a fetus at 12 weeks is very small. A 22 week fetus is fairly large. They measure how big bones are, and the distance around the head. There is no mistaking a 12 weeker for a 22 weeker.
