EDD--Who would you believe?

Traditional healer-type MW or CNM?

 

I know, it all depends but here's my situation: my due date officially is in 3.5 weeks. This is based on a solid FF chart and an U/S. My MW's (all CNMs) are telling me they think I'll keep baby in for a while longer. However, the traditional healer-type MW has been saying all along the end of May. Today I went in and she said maybe the 1st of June (so in one week).

 

Obviously, I know baby is coming soon and whether it is in one week or 3.5 weeks only God knows. However, I think it is interesting they differ so much in their opinions. My homeopath, btw, agrees more or less with the traditional MW on the date.

 

So what do you all think?

Your FF chart points to the later date?

I'd be interested in seeing your chart... why is the traditional MW saying early June? Any specific reason? I'd tend to go with the later date, just so I didn't get my hopes up and get frustrated if it didn't happen earlier.

Yes, my FF chart points to the later date. I will be fine if it is a later date I guess I just want to be prepared for anything!

 

The trad. MW is just basing her opinion on her observation of me. She has 45 yrs of experience so I guess I would say I value her opinion but I'm not set on it.

 

I have been feeling for quite some time that I might go earlier, but I know better than to totally go with my "intuition" (thought I was having twins at one point).....
