So if there is anyone here who likes to analyze dates like I do, please feel free to give some thought on when I conceived. Just for fun
Unfortunately, I don't really have a chart to look at, just some dates.
The ultrasound tech was in-training, which was a little frustrating. The date she gave can't be right... it's off at least 2-4 days in either direction.
So here is the story. My normal bbt is 96.3-97.1, leaning heavily toward 96.3. I never had a real post partum period... just some super-light spotting April 28 and 29th.
May 11: DTD
May 13: 98.6
May 14: 97.1 (didn't temp again, figured the high temp before had been due to having a couple drinks before bed)
May 19: DTD
May 20: 98.6 (and stayed high, so I knew I had o'ed at some point)
May 23,24: Negative Preg. Tests
May 29: Positive Test
I had assumed, based on the negative tests, that I conceived after dtd on the 19th, but acknowledged the slight chance that I could have conceived from dtd May 11th. I don't know why I had the low temp that week though, unless it was implantation. I always thought implantation happened later than 2-3 days post ovulation.
According to todays measurements, I conceived 5 days earlier than I thought. My OB said the u/s can be off a whole week in either direction and she doesn't put much stock in due dates anyways. However, I am a VBACer and those few days can be really important in the end.
I am starting to think that I DID conceive from the May 11 BD... possibly a couple days later.
Thankfully, my OB wrote down my due date as being on the later side rather than the earlier side, so I am comfortable with that. Still, it moved my date from the Feb 9th that I originally thought, to Feb 4.
I totally don't expect anyone to actually sit down and analyze this
But it helps me to write it out, and I am a chart nerd
