Help.. can scans be wrong

Hi all I'm not sure if this is the right post but just needed some advice from mums who have had babies born in August. I'll start from bringing on October 23 I was sexually assaulted I didn't take anything nor did I report it I took a pregnancy test 7 days later which said negative. I met my now partner 1st of November didn't have sex till 8th November had a light 3 day bleed November 11th or 12th and I had a light 3 day bleed in December the 8th. January the first came I didn't have any period cramping like I usually do so I decided to test on a clear blue didgital which said pregnant 1-2 weeks I made a appointment to take a wee sample in to doctors I was busy with work so it was near the end of January and it came back negative but I had 3 positives so I asked why and they said it could be to early to pick up hcg. I booked a appointment with a midwife and she asked me my last period I told her December put it was light and lasted only 3 days she still went off that I told her what happened in October and she reassured me it would have nothing to do with that and booked me a dating scan for march the 3rd I went to this and they dated me 12+ 5 and due date September 8th had a 20 week one and nothing was. Hangs just wanted to keep a eye on babies growth so had two extra scans was measuring on the 10th centile line was due to have a 3rd scan but went into labour on 18th August and baby was born 19th weighing 5lb 12 nothing was really said just baby looked fine and was a good weight. Now do you think it could be from the 23rd I've done every possible conception and due date and even implantation calculators which are all give me a due date from the 17th to 22nd of July with sperm lasting 7 days and conceiving on 30th October I can't afford a DNA I'm only part time and just about make it through on my wage. But it's really making me ill that's I've been to doctors a couple of times. I just can't understand it if it was from October it just means my 12 week scan I was actually 18+ and my 20 week scan I was actually 26 weeks. There's in no doubt in my mind given the situation I would of had a abortion which hurts me to say now having my baby. Can there be that wrong they was even going to let me go to the 8th septmer witch I didn't but that would of made me 46+ weeks. Now I don't know what to believe was the 8th of September my actual due date and baby was 3week early or was my due date July and baby was born at 44 weeks pleas someone help...

There are so many typos in your post it's a little hard to understand what you are saying,  but if you were given a due date of Sept. 8 based on a sonogram,  and had your baby Aug. 18 at 5 lbs 12 ounces,  it does make sense that your due date of Sept. 8 was correct.  And that would make your likely conception date Dec. 15.
I'm getting help for the sexual assault but I just wanted to make sure that October 23rd could have nothing to do with the Baby due date 8 Sep but born 18th August. Had 5 scan in all they would of told me if they'd pick it up?? If I work it out from my period in October 10-13 it would of made 44+ gestation when baby was born. Thanks for reply
Do you think that there's any connection with all the dates.. 23rd October. Due date 8 th sept born 18th
