I originally had a due date of the 24th by my best guesses of conception (which wasnt a very good recollection and would be based more on lmp, but would also have to consider that if it was the 24th, I would have gotten a dark BFP at only 7dpo, which is unlikely), when I had my ultrasound at 19 weeks, they gave me a due date of the 16th. Ultrasound dating with 2 of my other pregnancies was only 1 and 3 days off of actual conception, so should I just go by the 16th?
I just dont want to get my hopes up thinking I may go earlier than later, but I also dont want to think "oh late october" and get totally caught off guard!

I would just go by an estimated range instead of a date. Just say anywhere around the 19th to the 24th. Use both.

I would use a range. I just thought I had another three weeks to go and "nope". Little baby had her agenda. They just tend to come out when they are done baking regardless of what date you put on it.
