i thought that LMP was always the most accurate.

Well the sperm can take up to a week to take hold, so I would go by the measurements. Once you have an ultrasound if they give you an early one, they will be able to tell more accurately, since the changes are significant between day to day development. Then I would go by that day. If they don't give you an u/s it's still kind of a guessing game between those two dates.

When was your LMP?

an early ultrasound measurement is typically the most accurate - it should correlate to your LMP within a few days

Maybe you ovulated later. I would go by the measurements if everything looks healthy.

They always say LMP is the most accurate. I would go by that. By your LMP your due date is June 8th.
