***INTRO & EDD THREAD***

Re: ***INTRO & EDD THREAD***

  • I have a question about EDD. If I am almost certain what day I conceived, but the due date from that day is different from what the doctor told me because baby measured ahead at ultrasound, do I go with what I think is correct or what they think? Do I switch my ticker to the new due date and my ticker-switch day of the week to reflect the new one? I know it's just preference but I like having the ticker on Thursdays now that I'm used to it but also because it counts down from my anniversary, which is when I think I conceived. So I'm curious: do you all just go with what the doctor says then? Thanks!

  • @HGRich I guess it would depend how far off the two days are. If they are just a few days off, I would just stay with what I know. However, if its nearly a week off, I tend to think the Dr is probably right. Also, were you tracking ovulation by temping, checking CM, etc. Otherwise, there really is no real way to know WHEN you conceived...

  • @KirstinH88 it's only 3 days off. I was tracking ovulation religiously like a nut so I'm around 90% sure. Of course it's possible I was wrong. Maybe I'll go with a happy medium.

  • @HGRich I'm keeping my LMP due date even though the US measured 2 days behind. It's not a huge difference to go change my signature. Plus babies don't always come on their due dates!

  • @HGRich, I definitely think it's up to you. My OB changed my due date 5 times during my pregnancy with DS. So I stuck to my original due date based on LMP and conception date.

  • I kept my original date they gave me.. I measured a few days behind that date but they won't change your date by less than a week so I'll keep it at what my official due date according to my obgyn is.

  • I love your comment about appreciating the miserable symptoms of pregnancy. I had an early MC last November (at 7 weeks), but I never really felt pregnant in that short time. Now this time, I'm feeling the tell-tale symptoms of sore boobs, bloating, moodiness, and fatigue and I just keep thinking to myself these are all good things because it's the only reassurance I have that everything is going ok until my first ultrasound on Sept 13. 

    I wish you the best at your appt!

  • @kashibear Congrats on the "Irish twins" (I hope you don't find that term offensive). My first two are also 11 months apart - quite a load when they are little, but I love that they are now the best of friends (at 7 & 8).

    Yeah it was really weird... lol I kept trying to be added to the Facebook group but no one ever added me. I was on that one weird website for a little while and then I stopped because it was too confusing and it was still all drama. 
    Hopefully everyone is doing well! 
    Glad you are here though!
