Hello Bubu,
Normal gestation of a baby is 37-42 weeks. So your baby could arrive anytime between those dates despite the due date being normally calculated for delivery at 40 weeks.

Your gynaecologist would have taken measurements during a scan which will allow them to calculate a due date. Therefore I would suggest you go with your gynaecologists most recent information.

Best regards
