due dates for IVF babies

Do you think that it is more common for a singleton IVF baby to be delivered on or close to the due date since the doctor actually calculated from the conception date instead of LMP? I keep thinking that I'm going to go late because its common for first time moms to be late, but I read something yesterday that said this is usually just because women don't actually know their cycles that well and the due date was miscalculated.

I know that I can't know when I will go into labor, but I am is trying to schedule appointments for my last few weeks at the office before maternity leave and obviously its difficult when I don't really know how much time I have.

IVF, acupuncture, meditation and a miracle.

    My RE moved my due date up a day at my viability scan based on the baby's size at the time.  Go figure it now coincides with my LMP!

    Wow - that is really interesting. Wonder why? My naturally conceived DD came at 37 weeks and i'm thinking this one will do about the same. I hope not earlier just b/c she was IVF though LOL. She needs to bake!
