The earlier it is the more accurate it is whether from conception or from LMP, but if you say 12 weeks you mean from LMP.

Because an ultrasound at 7 weeks and one at 18 weeks use different methods for estimating gestational age, they have different levels of accuracy. In general, a skilled sonographer's 7 week ultrasound is more accurate for dating than a skilled sonographer's 18 week ultrasound. Talk with your health care provider for information specific to your situation.

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.

Is pregnancy normal if you've had an ultrasound at 3 wks and see no gestational sac?

At three weeks you have likely just implanted (assuming ovulation and conception at two weeks) and there would be no sac visible. According to some websites, it can be seen as early as 4 weeks. Personally speaking, I had an early ultrasound at 4 weeks and no sac was visible. A gestational sac and yolk sac were visible at 5.5 weeks.

Does gaedd on an ultrasound indicate the time from conception to the date of the ultrasound?

No. Gestational age is measured from the woman's last period. Even if she doesn't know when this was, the gestational age is time from conception plus 2 weeks. For example, a 'gaedd 19 weeks' will give you a due date 21 weeks in the future. You are 17(+ 1 day) weeks from conception. 19(+ 1 day) weeks from your notional last period and 21 (- 1 day) weeks until your EDD.

GA is gestational age which is how far pregnant you are. LMP is last menstrual period, which is the date of the first day. EDD is estimated dte of delivery (40 weeks from the LMP) The EDD may be changed if the ultrasound gestational age differs from the age by LMP by a lot.

Very irregular menstrual cycle your first day of lmp was aug 28 2005 today on October 13 2006 you are currently 41.5 weeks pregnant according to an us done at 9.2 weeks how accurate was that date?

A baby grows at a very precise rate in the first 12 weeks. A very accurate date can be given as long as you have an ultrasound under 12 weeks. If your ultrasound was at 9.2 weeks, I would consider this accurate.

Can the due date estimated from an ultrasound be off by four weeks?

It depends on when your U/S was done. I had an U/S to date my last pregnancy, because I was not having periods due to birth control. My baby was small for gestational age and so the U/S showed him due later than he actually was. BY over 3 weeks. An ultrasound done before 12 weeks is accurate to within 2 or 3 days. After that it becomes less and less accurate as your pregnancy progresses as obviously some babies grow bigger and faster than others.

When did you conceive Not sure of first day of LMP but last day was 21407 ultrasound done today 32107 says 5 weeks gestational age?

Because of the way that gestational ages are calculated, a pregnancy called "5 weeks gestational age" was conceived during sex that happened about three weeks ago, so you probably conceived around the first of March. That date makes sense with your best guess of your LMP date as well.

Is ultrasound scanning accurate enough to reveal a baby's sex at 17 weeks?

they normally wait until 20 weeks, so I don't know how accurate it would be at 17 weeks. I would suggest getting another scan at 25 weeks if you get one at 17 weeks

You were 16 weeks pregnant your ultrasound said that the baby size was 18 weeks which one should you do by?

The ultrasound dating has excellent and precise estimation of gestation especially if done in the first trimester (first 12 weeks). After 12 weeks, its accuracy goes down. However, compared to dating according to menstrual cycle, the ultrasound would be more accurate.
