Ok, I finally feel like I can join here!<br><br>
My due date is either 4/24 (from LMP) or 5/2 (from O). But after a m/c in June at 6 weeks, I'm still kind of freaked out <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
BUT, I got my levels checked and HCG went from 68 to 1,000 in 5 days, so I'm trying to breathe a sigh of relief and relax a bit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
So far, so good! No morning sickness, but no spotting either! Just my own obsessive worrying <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Welcome! Your numbers look good. I know it's hard not to worry after a previous loss even if it seems like everything is okay this time. I'm in the same boat. Actually there are several of us here. Here's hoping that we will all be here for the next 9 months! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">

Welcome to the due date club, and here is an exclusive invitation to the PAL thread as it comes around. We are all paranoid and scared there -hug- so if you need to get some of that anxiety out come on in!

Welcome!! Always use your ovulation date, if you know it. Those few extra days can save you an induction for being "overdue" if you're using a hospital!

That's so true! And one of the reasons I'm switching to a midwife (but still hospital birth) for this one. With my dd, she was born exactly on my estimated due date based on ovulation, which of course, was later than my doc wanted. He had pushed me into scheduling an induction so I already had that planned for 2 days after she arrived!
