Is it possible I was 44-46 pregnant when I gave birth, I put my last period around the 17th Nov 2011, and gave birth 23rd Sept 2012. I had three scans, one at 8 weeks, one at 13 weeks and one at 20 weeks. Nothing got mentioned about being further along then I was.
Are the measurements accurate when scanned? Especially on your dating scan?

Well I originally decided on a termination, at the abortion clinic I got dated at 7 weeks 2 days, this was the 9th Feb 2012, I had told them that my last period was approx 16th Dec 2011 but thinking back the last time i bled was approx 17th Nov 2011. Would he have just gone on what date I gave or the measurement of the fetus? I also told the midwife 16th Dec thats when the due date was given. The reason I ask is because im in a long term relationship but slept with another guy around the 5th Nov 2011, I bled around the 17th but got told that could have been implantation bleeding, in that case my period should have been approx 14 days before is that right? That puts the last period at 21st Oct 2011. As pregnancy is counted from that date 21st Oct-23rd Sept is nearly 11 months and cant possibly be the other guys can it?

At the abortion clinic they would have gone by your given date & the size of the embryo they scanned (I thought myself about 9wks but got told I was 7-8wks when I went for an abortion back in my teenage years).
To have given birth in Sept you would have conceived late Nov/early Dec (i.e. my Sept 2011 daughter I know I conceived 1st Dec 2010, she was due 10th Sept but arrived 7days late on 17th Sept 2011).
In theory if you last bled 17th Nov 2011 you should have been due towards the end of August (24th would have been your original date but that could have moved forward or backward at your dating scan). So you may have possibly given birth 42-43wks into term (technically the limit before induction). If your last period was the date you gave your MW (16th Dec) then you would have given birth pretty much spot on your due date.

A girl is claiming that my boyfriend is her 5 year old son's father. We have been together for 10 years but at the time we were separated. We got back together the beginning of December, her baby was born September 30th. He denies it because the dates don't add up, but she claims to have held the baby for 44 weeks due to the baby having lung problems. I cant seem to find any lung problems for a full term baby but is this possible?

Doubt it but I'm no midwife! Solve the problem and get a DNA test!
