I doubt they would change your due date based on a later ultrasound. The further along you get, the more variance in size of the baby compared to others at the same stage of pregnancy. Usually the early ultrasounds are pretty accurate. I went in for my first ultrasound when I was 9 weeks and they estimated me at 9 weeks and 5 days cause of what the baby was measuring.

When I went in for my 2nd ultrasound at 17 weeks, the doctors told me again that the baby was measuring about 6 days ahead of what week I was actually currently in. But I know for a fact that my DB was the same way and measured bigger gestational wise than what he was supposed to be. My doctor told me that the baby has to measure 10 days ahead of what the baby is supposed to be measuring gestational wise at the time based on your LMP in order for them to change the EDD. I asked my dr at my last appt if my edd would change if baby measured big or small at my us next month.

She said an early us is much more accurate than a 20 wk us, more accurate than lmp.
