Well, my baby is 2.5 weeks ahead of the lmp according to the scan and my dr says that the baby is a bit bigger than the average for his age. Even if you got pregnant right after your last period the delivery is supposed to start at 38 weeks. Good luck!

At 38w the scan for gestational age is really inaccurate. Like the pp said he's probably larger than most babies. You're doctor should still go by the original date you were given.

Math wise, if your last missed period were 35 weeks ago, there is no way you would have been pregnant 38 weeks ago. Babies come when they are ready and (since this seems to be a common misconception) a large baby isn't necessarily harder to deliver than a smaller one. Head circumference and shoulder size is more important.
