I was going to get my pregnancy ticker going since my numbers seem to be doing there thing but I am not sure what date to use.
LMP? O date? but I am not 100% sure of my O, if it was CD 17 or 18?
OR do you guys wait until you get the first Ultrasound?

Once I get farther along I know a couple days wont make a difference but this early it can with finding the heartbeat and what not.

I would just use LMP and when you do your ultrasound if the dates are different then just change it then. Congratulations Again. I'm so happy for you!!

O date is more accurate than LMP but you can go by either the change it if need be.

If your not for sure on O date I would go with LMP. Although if you are fairly certain within a day you could use that. Are we helpful or what LOL. So so happy for you Lindsey.

I would go by LMP but keep both dates in your mind when you go in to the doctor's office to minimize freak outs.

My doctor's office won't change the due date due to an ultrasound unless it's off by several days. It seems like a lot of other people have had their dates adjusted by a day or two, though, so I don't know what the common practice is.

Also, I thought the date that was important was not ovulation, but conception, which is almost impossible to pinpoint since sperm hang around for a while.

I know what I would do, but it is just my opinion. I would go by a CD18 O date. it is the latest you could have gotten pregnant so if the baby is larger than that, then it is a good thing. Based on your LMP you could measure almost a week "behind" and cause stress...at least it would for me.

ETA: Since I was 100% sure of my O date, regardless of the measurements of Marsi, I have never changed my due date. If I wanted to change it, I could be due October 16th instead of the 23rd.
