Don't know when I'm due?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone
My name is Michaelle and I'm new here. We just found out on friday that we are preggo with #3. Can anyone tell me how to figure out what my due date is. My last period was May 19. I usually have a 30-32 day cycle instead of 28 days.( i don't know if that makes a difference or not).
Pleases help I can't wait to know and I will not have a prenatal visit for another 3-4 weeks.
thanks in advance,
Michaelle

One of the sites posted in the "web-site swap" thread on this due date club had an EDD calculator. Dom't remember which one it was, sorry, but check there...

Oh, and congratulations!

My best guess is Feb 27th.

Take the 1st day of you last period (May 19) add 7 days (May 26) minus 3 months (Feb 26) add 2-4 days to account for having longer cycles (Feb 28-Mar 1)
HTH!

Normally, I use that method too (+ 7 days, - 3 months) but I've found that it gives slightly goofy results when dealing with February. To check, I add 38 weeks to the most likely ovulation day (probably May 19+ 16 days or so in her case= June 4th)

Congratulations!

I went to: http://www.tryingtoconceive.com/eddc.htm and put in your last period as May 23 (a "normal" period is 28 days, so since yours could be as much as 32 days, I added four days to May 19).

According to the calculator, you're due on February 27th! Congrats, mama!

March 1st sounds like a good time to have a baby :LOL
I'm so excited I don't know what to do first. I need to interview midwives (I'm planning a homebirth after 2 c/s).
I'm scared and giddy all at once. If it wasn't for morning sickness I would probably be doing jumping jacks.
