my date from midwife was 30th september - scan date 21st october!!!i had 2 days spotting in january which midwife thought was an implantation bleed not an af - but scan revealed it was an af!
go with the scan date - i was given due date of 29th july with dd but scan date of 7th aug - dd induced on 22nd july and born 24th july but midwives reckon she was a bit earlier than expected so go with scan please!
My midwife gave me a date based on my last period and although my 12 week scan said I was at least one week AHEAD she says she can't change it now on my paperwork(and that first babies are late anyway). Apart from being irrationally miffed that baby's due date is now August instead of July, I'm worried that they'll let the baby get 'overcooked' if I'm late (e.g. if I'm one week late 'officially' I'll already be 2.5 weeks late according to the scan. I don't understand why they can't just change the paperwork.
...and does anybody know if it's bad for the baby to 'stay in too long' (apart from me being uncomfortable)?
I have had the same, according to my period dates the baby is due on 5 June but at the 12 weeks scan they said I was 5 days ahead, which would make it 31st May. They didn't change the due date - when I asked at my last scan at 32 weeks, the sonographer said they don't change the due date because 'women are very protective of their period dates'! Well I am not!, who I am to interfere with nature, I just want to know when my baby is due! It makes me feel better to go by the scan dates as I believe they are more accurate. I have the same concerns as you though Rochwen, that if the baby is overdue, that they will leave it too long to induce me!
