Apparently, a scan at around 12 weeks is the most accurate for dating purposes. When did the hospital say your next scan is?

EDD is 40 weeks from 14 days before conception...

They won't give a due date until you are 8 weeks pregnant - or at least this is the policy in my local hospital.

So hopefully they'll calculate your due date at next scan appointment.

I had a couple of early scans as like you was bf and no periods - gained an extra couple of weeks if that makes sense. So at first scan they said 4-5 weeks and at the scan 2 weeks later i was suddenly 8 weeks. Second scan dates matched my 12 week scan. Does that make any sense at all?

If you're between 5 and 6 weeks now then I make you due around christmas (i.e. 34-35 weeks from now). But as traceybath says dates may well change with future scans...
