Well I'm due April the 25, and I'll be 10 weeks on Wednesday, although my ultrasound shows me slightly furthur along. But by dates alone, I'm almost 10 weeks. So you're 10 weekish too!

I am due the 25th too. Or I thought I was due the 29th but the midwife changed it.

I'm a little confused too, first the md gave me a due date of april 10th from the sono, then later when I switched my care, the midwife gave me april 15th from my first day of last period. Which one is more accurate? Anyone know?

I'm not due until the end of the first week of May but I figure that I'll have my babe on April 23..... For YEARS I've tried to convince my mother that that was HER birthday (it's actually March 23) so I figure maybe I just KNOW that some day that day will be important to us! heehee!
So, April 20 would make you about 10 weeks, I concur with the rest of the ladies.

According to my calculator... if you are due on April 20th you are 10 weeks 3 days-- you will be 11 weeks on Friday- that's when your weeks would "turn over".
for this month is says: "You may be sleepless, sweating more and have a small weight gain." Does that sum it up? It didn't say "really sick" though...

If I were you I would stick with the April 15 one-- then they would let you go longer. The sono is accurate within 2 days in the first trimester... but then, the due date is just an estimate anyway-- it's not set in stone. Mamas and babies are all different, monthly cycles are all different- I don't think they should make everyone stick to a 40 week pregnancy either. IMO

Yeah, who cares about specific dates? I'm going by when I know we DTD (sadly very limited, lol-- we weren't supposed to be doing it because I had just m/c'ed but it was my birthday, gosh darnnit!), although I suspect I implanted really late. It just simplifies things. I was happy when my doc said April 21 instead of the 19th, which is what I had figured, because the longer they'll "let" you go the better (ha, just try to induce me! You'll have to FIND me first, lol). I'd like to avoid April 20th because working at a high school I am all too aware of that date already-- but April 23rd would be great for my pal Shakey But that's all just fun speculation. It'll probably be later as it's my first!

I am REALLY just concerned w making it to the 2nd trimester and then taking it from there! I still feel blah! But I am sleeping well due to the Unisom. Going to bed @ 7:30 or 8 and getting up @ 6. I have been having some hot flashes and cold flashes-due to tiredness? Small weight gain-yes, but nothing noticible, still no belly. Pants still fit, but are snug. Mat. pants are too big, though

Thank you ladies! So, one week to go till 2nd Tri?? Oh I hope-things are looking up!

We have the same due date

I had an ultrasound today because I bled over the weekend, not a crazy amount but enough to worry me a lot.

The baby is fine! It looked like an extremely active little sea monkey.
