There can be several reasons why your ultrasound may show a different gestational age than what you expected. It is important to remember that ultrasounds are not always 100% accurate in determining gestational age. Factors such as the position of the baby, maternal factors, and technical errors can contribute to discrepancies in the measurements. Additionally, if your due date was determined based on your last menstrual period (LMP), it is possible that there was an error in calculating the due date. In some cases, a growth restriction or other complications may also affect the baby's size and development. It is recommended to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider who can provide further evaluation and guidance based on your specific situation.
