Hi--this is my first pregnancy and I'm getting conflicting information on due date calculators. I know I conceived on 11/18, and LMP on 11/1.

Anyone have a recommended calculator?

Thanks!!!!!!!

This site has different methods of calculation. I personally found the Wood's method the most accurate. I never had inductions, but birthed when it was time. Hope this helps.

PS, that's based on ovulation date, not LMP. If I used the LMP ones, based on periods, I would have an EDD two weeks earlier! I concieved on day 28.
