Just hoping for a little validation in my thinking...<br><br>
My LMP was Oct. 19th, which going by normal cycle standards (which I normally have) I ovulated/conceived approximately Nov 1st. I'd be due around July 25th.<br><br>
BUT my LMP was also my first period without my IUD (removed Oct. 16th), and it lasted 2 weeks. So its not really a normal cycle.<br><br>
I had some spotting, very light on Nov 20-21st. I think this was implantation bleeding, but it occurred almost 20 days after when I would have ovulated (going off of my LMP). That is too long! So in actuality I think I must be due a week into August.<br><br>
I know for sure that we had sex about 4 or 5 days before this spotting. A little close for implantation, but still possible right? Ugh, I don't know. I feel like a difference in due date of almost 2 weeks is significant, but maybe it doesn't really matter.<br><br>
I just don't know if I should present my half-baked ideas to my MW. This will be my first time using a MW, do they usually seem open to the idea of dating by implantation bleeding? I'm very clear on the fact that its not reliable, but I feel sure on this.

I would talk to my MW! If they are not open to the idea you have the WRONG MW. Also they may suggest an ultrasound for dating purposes. That is totally up to you, you don't have to have it if you don't want it.<br><br>
You probably did not O on you normal schedule since your bleeding lasted for so long. Did you happen to keep track of anything like when you BDed or CM during the last month for more detailed information. Also when did you get your first positive that could also be helpful.<br><br>
I MCed last cycle so my period was also longer than normal it though off my O day by the same amount of days longer my period was. I am not saying that is the norm but just what happened to me.

Thanks for answering <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
No I wasn't keeping track of anything, I wasn't expecting or trying to get pregnant. I got my first positive on Nov 28th, last Wednesday. It was a very dark line, no doubts about it!<br><br>
I'll definitely mention it to my MW then, I was starting to think I was going a little crazy. I've never not known when I conceived, so it feels weird being in limbo.

I forgot to mention that this is almost exactly the same situation I was in with my first DD. I never kept track of ANYTHING not even the date of my LMP. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> So I had no idea when I conceived, we were not "trying" but we were not using any contraception either<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">. I basically just knew a few days before AF was coming by feeling and would stock my purse with tampons. Well AF never came and on top of it I got bit by a dog (in the stomach <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dropjaw">, I still have the scars where the few teeth that actually broke skin )and came down with what I though was the stomach flu, well actually it was MAJOR MS so life was a little crazy. By the time I realized that I had missed AF I was about 6wks by my best guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> The line was SUPER dark and showed up the same time as the control. I agreed to a vaginal US for dating and came up in about the same time frame as my guess. I ended up going 4 days before the US EDD so their was no problem with me being late and not really knowing when I conceived. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Wow, I forgot I asked about this so long ago...<br><br>
Well here I am into August, so I'm guessing my first instinct about the implantation bleeding was right. I did end up with a dating ultrasound that put me at July 22nd. Now its 1.5 weeks after that, so I'm sure that was likely WRONG <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I just feel like an idiot for getting my hopes into a July baby<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I had an u/s which showed I was due in July 30, according to my LMP I was due Aug. 1, so it might or might not help to get an u/s <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> I've seen/heard some women going up to 43 wks gestation!
