Re: the scan report says the baby is 38 weeks, but as per the lmp the baby is 35 weeks,what to do.
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.
