Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for posting! Your due date as estimated by your LMP and your due date as estimated by the ultrasound are both estimates. They are only a week apart, so usually if the ultrasound is less than 10 days apart from the date given by your doctor then the date remains the same. As far as we have come in technology, the further along you are in pregnancy, the less accurate the ultrasound becomes. 

Your due date is still February 26 but considering that most women don't give birth on their actual due date, it is a good idea to have everything ready within the next few weeks. Congratulations!
