So a couple of different online calculators have told me July 24-26. I thought more like early August?<br><br>
My LMP was October 16th, but I have long cycles (up to 36 days at times). I believe that I ovulated the first week of November and conceived toward the end of that week, about Nov 6-8. Not sure because I didn't write down when we dtd! drat! But I believe it was the 6th.<br><br>
Can anyone help me out here? July 25 seems really soon as I feel like I just conceived, lol, maybe I'm just in shock. fwiw, I've been having symptoms for about two weeks, and with my last pregnancy, I could "feel" it right away. So I think I'm only 3wks along?<br><br>
Like I said, I need a little help figuring this out. I want to have a pretty solid idea before I make an appointment because with my last, I believe I was off a couple weeks, and they pressured me into inducing by saying she was overdue and would be too big for me to birth (she was 6lbs and had NO signs of being overdue, no long fingernails or white stuff on skin <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">).<br><br>
So I want to give myself a week or two of wiggle room as I don't want to be induced again; if my baby wants to cook longer, then I want to let it and not be pressured to believe that it's overdue, kwim?<br><br>
Anybody?<br><br>
*ETA I have been crazy nauseous this week and pretty nauseous last week. Could that mean I'm further along than I thought? Also--this is weird--but I SWEAR I feel it moving already! I know that's "not possible" but I've felt wiggles and scratches and such that I can only explain as "something" growing or moving or happening with the little jelly bean. I don't remember feeling anything like that with my first until much later--tho I believe I felt her pretty early, like 16-18 wks?<br><br>
Is it possible that I could have bled at my reg period time and actually be a month further? I am very confused*

Generally, EDD is 266 days from conception. Assuming you conceived on November 6, your EDD would be July 30, 2010.<br><br>

There are online calculators out there that let you punch in how many days your cycle is...up to 35. That would give a more accurate reading.<br><br>
Based on the dates you gave, the calculator I used had 11/4 as an estimated conception date, and 7/29 as an estimated due date.

Could you just count two weeks back from your day of ovulation and punch that in as your LMP? That's what I did, because I ovulated closer to three weeks after LMP and when they calculate how far along you are it seems they assume a 28-day cycle w/ovulation on day 14.

My LPM was 10-19-09 and I'm due 7-26-10.. since yours was 3 days prior, I would imagine you are due 7-23-10. I "wheeled" myself out at work and although my date of conception was probably Nov 2, I'm still due on 7/26 according to my LMP.

I knew this was the right place to post! Well, congrats to all you mommas as well! I guess that July 24-27 is what I should be looking at. Guess I know which DDC I belong in, too.
