And you were sure of your due date based on when you ovulated, how long was your pregnancy?

Just curious. Since due dates are calculated based on LMP I'm wondering if they would be any different among charting ladies.

I'll start: 37 weeks 2 days, spontaneous labor.

40 weeks exactly both times! Labor started around 11pm night of my due date each time, and both were born in the early morning.

41 weeks 5 days (induction)

 

However, DD was also acynclitic and posterior and rather large, so I'm sure that's what delayed things.

Counting from 2 weeks before O, it was 42 weeks (went into labor at 41w5d, had him just after midnight 28 hours later). So glad I knew my O date and wasn't going off LMP or I'd be 42w5d and really impatient. As it was I did drink 1oz of castor oil.

Wow, what a variety! (Of course)

I guess I did mean to add two weeks so you're counting as if from LMP. Not sure if that was clear. So like, if you were actually only pregnant for 37 weeks from ovulation, you would respond, "39 weeks"

Sorry I misunderstood.

 

 

37w5d by ovulation, 38 weeks by actual LMP

 

40w4d by ovulation, 44 weeks by actual LMP

I was definitely irregular, due to my petite size, it took us three months of actively trying to get pregnant, but I seemed to ovulate the same time no mater what, which was almost every 35 days and she came the day I knew she would :)

*i would also keep track of when we were "trying" which also helped once I knew I was pregnant, as I was able to calculate it that way.

40 weeks even for my first two.

41 even with my third (but we had a lot of stress right at 40 weeks)

41+5 with my fourth (but she was tangled in her cord and couldn't engage...)

I used my O date because I O late (around day 18-21) so LMP would skew everything (early ultrasound confirmed my dates). Anyway, for DD#1 it was 39w6d and 39w3d with DD#2, both spontaneous labors.

#1-39w 4d...wasn't charting yet, but an early u/s moved my edd back 8 days from LMP, and I'm so glad it did! Otherwise she would have been 4 days "late."

 

#2-41w 2d...O-two weeks for edd

 

#3-41w even...O-two weeks for edd
