i went to introduce myself and realized i can't even tell you all an EDD <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> .<br><br>
i had only been keeping track of very basic cycle info before i got pregnant.<br><br>
i had 4 post partum periods with cycles of 32-33 days. usually 33.<br><br>
if one assumes that i ovulate at day 18 or 19 of my cycle, then i would have ovulated May 7.<br><br>
we had sex May 2 and May 8.<br><br>
so either the fruits of our May 2 encounter was able to hold on until i ovulated or the fruits of our May 8 encounter was able to catch the egg! i'm so torn!<br><br>
with that said, i know due dates are just estimates. i was temping with my first and knew exactly when things happened and i went 1w6d past my due date. still though, i'd like to know when in january/february set my +/- 2 week range of possible birth dates.<br><br>
ETA: i tested on the day my period was due and the second line showed up fast and it showed up dark. it was also one of my last bathroom visits in the evening.

i would lean towards the later, and if you are getting an early u/s then you will get correct info if different.

thanks for the input. don't know what our u/s plans are this time around. we had a number of u/s in the super early weeks last time because my provider did not believe the dates i was telling her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> .

I'd use May 5th for kicks, but that's the kind of gal I am. I don't put much stock in due dates. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

I would use may 7 bcs that was the day you believe you o'd so that would be the most realistic.<br>
That is what i did my last pg although we had bd 5 days before 0. When it is before o the sperm wait around for the egg so even if you bd 5 dpo than it catches the egg that was released on o. if that makes since.<br>
I used my o date last time and was due dec. 19 according to 1 wheel and dec 20 according to another and I went into labor at 11pm on teh 19 and had her 5 am on the 20 and know that i conceived her 5 days before o.

well, if you O'd may 7, then that's what you use for your due date calculation regardless of what day intercourse took place on.

I was going to say that there's no conception until after O but it looks like you already got that. Lots of people on the cusp hang around both ddcs.

My 2nd came 2 weeks "early" (EDD came from early u/s as I hadn't had a period yet after #1) and I'm due Jan 10th. I wasn't sure whether to join this group or December, but I don't have the "early" vibe I got with that one, so I stuck w/ my date.

I voted for May 2nd, because I'm biased- that's when I suspect I conceived as well!
