If you were charting, and got pregnant...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
And you were sure of your due date based on when you ovulated, how long was your pregnancy?

Just curious. Since due dates are calculated based on LMP I'm wondering if they would be any different among charting ladies.

I'll start: 37 weeks 2 days, spontaneous labor.

39 weeks even, spontaneous labor.

40 Weeks 2 days

40 weeks exactly both times! Labor started around 11pm night of my due date each time, and both were born in the early morning.

37w 3 days, 38 weeks

41 weeks 5 days (induction)

 

However, DD was also acynclitic and posterior and rather large, so I'm sure that's what delayed things.

39 weeks, 5 days for me.

Counting from 2 weeks before O, it was 42 weeks (went into labor at 41w5d, had him just after midnight 28 hours later). So glad I knew my O date and wasn't going off LMP or I'd be 42w5d and really impatient. As it was I did drink 1oz of castor oil.

We also counted from O minus 2 weeks since I have long cycles.

DD1: 38w2d
DD2: 37w even

38 weeks, 6 days (+2 weeks would be 40 weeks 6 days)

37w5d

and

40w4d

Wow, what a variety! (Of course)

I guess I did mean to add two weeks so you're counting as if from LMP. Not sure if that was clear. So like, if you were actually only pregnant for 37 weeks from ovulation, you would respond, "39 weeks"

Sorry I misunderstood.

 

 

37w5d by ovulation, 38 weeks by actual LMP

 

40w4d by ovulation, 44 weeks by actual LMP

36w 2d from Ovulation

I was definitely irregular, due to my petite size, it took us three months of actively trying to get pregnant, but I seemed to ovulate the same time no mater what, which was almost every 35 days and she came the day I knew she would :)

*i would also keep track of when we were "trying" which also helped once I knew I was pregnant, as I was able to calculate it that way.

post #19 of 27

40 weeks even for my first two.

41 even with my third (but we had a lot of stress right at 40 weeks)

41+5 with my fourth (but she was tangled in her cord and couldn't engage...)

35 weeks and 3 days, spontaneous labour.
