Finally scheduled my first appointment for June 20th. I know that I am 6w4d because I was tracking my cycle and I know when I ovulated. BUT, according to my LMP, I am actually 7w4d. This always happens to me because I have a long cycle. The OB never wants to base the due date on my information though and I always get a little nervous about getting to 41weeks and being pressured to be induced, although that hasn't happened yet. I mean, I always go past 41 weeks but I've never been pressured to be induced. Anyway! My Doctor is going to do an ultrasound to determine the due date. I don't usually get an early ultrasound, but if this helps give me a more accurate due date, then I won't have to worry about the threat of induction as much. And I can't help but be excited about seeing that little heart beat. :)
The only way I can think of dealing with the due date dilemma is to fudge on your LMP date. I have long cycles, too. I know when I ovulated, so I just gave the date that was 2 weeks before that. It wasn't very big of a difference in dates for me, but last time I went over by 4 days, and I got funny looks after I got past that 40 week mark. Why don't they get that it's just an estimate?
