    Good evening no bleeding and spotting will not reduce pregnancy date it is possibly an error from the machine you did the scan the 2nd time it Ll depends on how they calibrate it. But to be sure I'll advise you seek a 3rd opinion by redoing the scan some where else| [a good scan centre] apart from the 1sr 2 places then compare.

    thank you very much Dr Modupe so has my instinct been telling me . cos after testing the result of the scan to my Dr he said it is possible d baby stopped growing which I rebuke. Although I have appointment to see him on Tuesday so that he can scan me himself.

    OK you redoing the scan will be better & I also hope the baby hasn't stopped growing as your Dr mentioned because it is a possible cause too. But have faith my dear & make sure you go on your appointment date & be reexamined
