Because my LMP was November 18th, and so far my due date according to that is wrong as I'm still pregnant joy.gif

I think LMP is a pretty inaccurate way to date. It assumes you O on day 14. I think one of my kids was conceived with an O on day 23. Could you imagine how screwed up my dates would be by LMP for that!?

Either way though, you're only 40 +5 with an edd of 8/24. That's still totally in the range of normal. If you're having a hospital birth though, I'd always go with the later EDD. it will save you hastle in the end.

I was two days early with my son, anyway. How did you know you ovulated late did early ultrasound show that as well?

I use FAM, so I'm always charting.

Due dates are just guess dates. I think it's less than 5% of babies that are born on it, so still being pregnant does not verify anything for sure. Ultrasound does not tell you the date of ovulation; it only estimates gestational age based on fetal measurements.

Yep! The only way to really know when you o'd is to chart or some women use OPKs.  And like it's been said before, you don't know how long sperm survived, even if you have sex the day before you O,  you don't know that it was a sperm from that encounter that fertilized your egg.
