I was charting at the time, but since I was also breastfeeding, and it was only my third postpartum cycle, my chart wasn't exactly "normal." It was only in retrospect that I could identify when I must have ovulated -- my temperature didn't have time to settle down before I ovulated, so I missed the temperature shift.
Anyway, I'm using the date of ovulation to calculate my due date of 1/27, even though by LMP my due date would be 1/31. I haven't been to see the doctor yet, but I expect (based on what they did last time) they'll base it on my LMP by using one of those wheels, which is good for me since it'll give me an extra few days before they start getting concerned about the baby being overdue. (At my doctor's office, they'll let you go 2 weeks over before they want you to be induced; my daughter was a week late.)
