If I calculate my due date from my LMP (as my OB's office does) I am due the 8th. But I ovulated late this cycle, and I am actually due on the 16th. I told the girl at the OB office that my ovulation puts me a week behind where they put me, and she told me that they always go by LMP. This tells me that they will be doing things a week ahead, or I will always be measuring a week behind. I did not press the issue too much with the receptionist at the office since using their dates gets me in for an appointment a week earlier, but I really want the info that they are using to be accurate. To me an 8 day difference is pretty significant, especially since I am induced a week early due to health issues.
Has anyone else had this issue? Were you able to get your doc's office to finally listen to you and change your due date?
does your dr's office do an early ultrasound? mine did one at 9 weeks for my son, and my LMP was about a month before actual conception since my cycles were so messed up. after the u/s they changed my due date to match the u/s (and MY calculated due date)
