Hi there, I think I will hopefully become a person who works on this site soon because I know a good amount about pregnancy, conception, and birth. So I am gonna try to answer your question now:

FIrst of all, it is normal to sometimes measure ahead or behind. Usually, most women measure 0-2 weeks ahead, or behind. On December 31st, you were about 23 weeks pregnant. Measuring 26 weeks could mean a bigger baby, or it could mean a lot of other things.

The important question to ask yourself is, who else did you have sex with around the time you conceived this baby? Did you have sex with more than one person in the month of July or August? If there was only ONE person in those 2 months, it is probably their child; although only a paternity test can truly confirm that.

Best of Luck,
Shelly, SN
