If a scan showed you were 28 weeks pregnant but when you went to the hospital they said you felt 30-32 weeks pregnant could the scan prediction be wrong?

Ultrasound predictions of how far along someone is get worse and worse the longer the person is pregnant. An ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant could be 2 weeks off (either more or less); by the end of pregnancy, they can be as many as three weeks off. The best ultrasounds to get to predict due dates are those done in the first trimester (first three months). In this case, having an ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant and a physician predicting 30 could be about the same thing. "Feeling" 30-32 weeks pregnant also isn't the best predictor either, as different physicians and nurses may estimate differently. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

For how long? It could be nothing or it could be dangerous. You really need to get to the docs or hospital.

Yes, you could be. Go to the doctor and ask them to do a test because it's more reliable

You cant test a prediction. Only because a prediction is something you think that is going to happen so you couldnt test a prediction UNLESS your using science

Prediction means : A statement of what could happen in the future Prediction means : A conclusion trough a process of logical thinking

If you did the first test with the first urine in the morning and the second later in the day, you may be pregnant. Take another test with the first urine in the morning when the hormones are more concentrated.

Yes you could be pregnant if you had sex without BC - See link for gender prediction. Good Luck.

I had my uterus out in 2000 and my ovaries out in 2011 and recently went to hospital sick and week. When they did a blood test it came back positive for pregnancy. It was not high but still showed pregnant. It has been about 3 and 1/2 since I was released from hospital and still feel sick and week, what could cause this positive test and is my weakness related to this

I took a home pregnancy test and the control line didn't show up but the positive line did so could i be pregnant? I haven' had a period since June 25,2009.

Hi, It is possible to be pregnant and have a negative urine pregnancy test. It is also possible you could be pregnant with a negative blood test providing that the blood test was performed too early. This could also be why the ultrasound showed signs of pregnancy. Also if you miscarried recently without you knowing, it is possible the ultrasound picked up the sac minur the embryo. If a embryo is picked up on the ultrasound then you're pregnant hun.

could it be ectopic, though the scan should have picked up abnormalities. See your doctor.

Showing signs? Meaning cramping? or spotting? Was the first period normal? If you had unprotected sex than yes you "could" be pregnant. Stress from thinking your pregnant can also bring such symptoms.

YES.... U CAN STILL BE PREGNANT... JUST CUZ THE PREGNANCY HORMONE IS NOT PRESENT YET DOES NOT MEAN THAT U ARE NOT PREGNANT... U MAY BE VERY EARLY IN PREGNANCY AND THIS IS WHY IT HAS NOT SHOWED A POSITIVE RESULT... THE BEST TEST TO HAVE IS A BLOOD TEST... U NEVER KNOW... U COULD BE PREGNANT AND NOT KNOW IT... SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE... MY 1ST PREGNANCY ID DID NOT KNOW I WAS PREGNANT UNTIL I WAS 91/2 WEEKS PREGNANT... I WAS STILL GETTING MY MONTHLY CYCLE BUT WAS SICK... WENT TO THE HOSPITAL THINKING I HAD A STOMACH FLU AND CAME OUT W/ THE DIAGNOSIS OF BEING 91/2 WEEKSA PREGNANT... SO SEE... ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.... YES.... U CAN STILL BE PREGNANT...

.....When i found out i was pregnant with my 3rd child i had a test done at the doctors that showed up negative, i then got transfered to the hospital for an xray on my chest but because i said their was a possibility that i could be pregnant i had to then get a re test, the test came back very faintly positive i asked if you could get a false positive they said no, u can get false negatives tho because when youre in very early stages of pregnancy it is sometimes to early to detect....

Your belly could be sticking out and may not be pregnant, only way to be sure if to do a check up. If you are concerned with cost, purchase a cheap tester to find out if you are. If you want to be more sure, you can visit a hospital and do a test there.

What prediction could you make about your future rolls.

Tenet means a principle or an opinion. This is not a prediction or an amusement, although it could be used in a humorous context.

Take another pregnancy test. I suggest buying one that is easier to read this time (a digital one) that says 'pregnant' or 'not pregnant'

User Avatar

An inference is a conclusion which can be about anything; it could be a prediction of something that you expect to happen in the future, but it could also be your interpretation of something that happened in the past. I might infer that the reason why you are eating a lot of food at lunch because you did not eat breakfast. That is not a prediction.
