My LMP was actually Nov 26th but I know I didn't ovulate until CD20. I gave my doctor the date of Dec 2nd (6 days later than it actually is) so that the due date would be more accurate. The first ultrasound agreed completely with the CD20 date. Anyone else do this? Anyone else who charted frustrated at the doctor using a due date you thing is wrong? Past experiences?
In an ideal world, I supposed you'd look for a dr. or a midwife that understands charting and respects your knowledge of your body. OBs that read charts do exist--mine introduced me to charting!

I'll likely be switching to a homebirth midwife if this is a viable pregnancy (waiting on CVS results). Where I'm at now is an OB who I've mostly used as a GYN and dealt with a few D&Cs for miscarriages- I trust his operating abilities so that's important. But he says things like "We wouldn't LET you go over" regarding my comment that my Dad's birthday is two days after my EDD- haha, yeah buddy. Okey doke.
It actually could be a day or two off, but I don't know when I ovulated, I just know when we did the "bd." That was Christmas Eve. The ultrasound put the date of conception as Dec. 26. Could be a bit off, or it could be that I didn't ovulate until then and the sperm just stuck around that long. Either way I'm not worried about a day or two in either direction-- a week or two (which it would be if I went by my actual LMP) WOULD be a problem, though.

anywya i figured out my due date and told them i wasn't sure.. u/s was within a day so it was perfect for me and then at my 9 week u/s it was pushed a day later so even better. but i knew it had to be within a 5 day window that df was in town but i wasn't sure which day I O'd on though I knew that i did. If i knew the exact date I o'd i would have adjusted it according to that though it can take a few days to implant. anyway.. yes i would lie.
