My GP told me June 7 and my baby doctor told me June 14 and when I punch in the numbers online it dates me between June 7th and 10th depending on the site.<br>
I ovulated Sept 15/16.<br>
Thanks.

I would calculate your EDD by your ovulation date(s). Did you chart? If so that would be a accurate way to find out. If your just guessing on your ovulation date I would just tell people that your due the 2nd week in June, lol <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
According to my calculations I'm due June 15th but the MW insists I'm due June 12th... I dont really care anymore - the baby is gonna come when the baby is gonna come. I just tell people mid- June!

I was (mostly) charting and used an ovulation test which was pos on the afternoon of the 15th Sept so I ovulated 12-24 hours from then.<br>
I am sure that no prediction would be right, but I'd like to be able to think things like I am 12+4 if I could<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

Personally, I think its best to pick the latest date. That way, if you go over, you have a buffer with your care providers before they start getting antsy and wanting to intervene. So, based on most DD calculators, I'm due June 20, but my cycle tends to run 33 days, so I'm saying June 25. So many factors...

The best way is to subtract 7 days and 3 months from your O date. So if you O'd Sept 15th, subtract 7 = Sept 8 subtract 3 months = June 8th. If you've had an ultrasound, go with that.

I agree. Go for the later date so you don't get forced to induce.<br><br>
When was your LMP?

I started spotting on Aug 31 and I think real bleeding was Sept 2, but it wasn't due until around the 5th. I think that it was a bit funny being that I'd recently had my IUD out.<br>
I like the June 8th that's what I'd originally "picked" because it's also my birthday. So if I'm due on June 8th, just how far along am I now?

Don't go by LMP, just go by ovulation date. I LOVE this: <a href="http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/pregnancycalendar/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/preg...dar/index.html</a> (make sure to choose "weeks and days" once it gives you your EDD).<br><br>
My LMP is 9/1 and my ovulation was 9/11, EDD is 6/4 based on ovulation.

Thanks all, I will go with June 8 and 12 weeks on Tuesday! of course, that's just a fairly random selection<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
