I'm beginning to wonder... based on my first ultrasound at 8 weeks they set the due date 11/3. but based on LMP it would be 11/13. I know that 10 days shouldn't make that big a difference, but right now the only measurements that are right on to the 11/3 date is his femur. Is it possible that maybe his leg is just extra long and that the 11/3 isn't reliable? Right now, based on his other measurements, he would be only in the 19%ile and his head is about 2 1/2 weeks behind (1%ile). However, if you go by the 11/13 date then the measurements are better except for the fact that he has freakishly long legs. Personally, I like this scenario better.
I'm just worried that if they set the c/s by the 11/3 date, then he'll be born too early. I'd rather he bake as long as possible and fatten up!! The drs seem inclined to go with the 11/3 date since the first u/s is supposed to be very reliable, but if it is based on the femur measurement, then it could be wrong right?
(They want to schedule the c/s around 37 weeks.)
PS I have to schedule a c/s since he has spina bifida and will need surgery.
