I know most OB's go by LMP, but I'm 95% sure of my O date, and I O'd super early the cycle I got pregnant. And part of the reason I know that is not only the symptoms I was having, but also DH was out of town for about 6 weeks, and we went to stay with him for 2 weeks around Christmas. There was no way I would have gotten pregnant while we were apart if I O'd later than I think I did bc we weren't even together.
Also, I'm starting to get a belly already. And just under 7 weeks seems super early to be showing at all. But I just calculated it out by my O date and that would make me 8 weeks on Saturday as opposed to 7 weeks tomorrow. I'm anxious to find out what my new Dr thinks when I go in next Thursday. I dunno... I could be crazy but just curious if anyone has ran into this before...
I would totally go by your 0 date - it is more accurate if you were tracking carefully. But, I have to say - when it's not your first pregnancy your belly shows much sooner than your first. With my first I noticed a tiny bump at 8 weeks. This time, I swear I could already tell at 5.5 or 6 weeks for sure.
well I don't temp and I didn't use OPKs BUT I had two days of EWCM and on the final day I had cramping on my left side. And then I dried right up, and thats when me and DD flew back home and didn't see DH for another 2 weeks. I think its nearly impossible I could have O'd after we came back from our trip judging by my symptoms. The only thing that throws me off is that I tested about 14 dpo (according to when I think I Oed) and I tested negative. But I didn't test for another week after that bc I really didn't think I was pregnant after that. I kinda hope they will do an u/s and see what I'm measuring at bc I'm curious.
I went by my O date. I was charting/temping/OPKing so I knew exactly when I O'd. When I told my doctor, she went by LMP until the dating ultrasound. I gloated a bit when the bebe was exactly as I said.
Ok I'm feeling much more optimistic about going by my O date! I am prepared for the Dr. to want to go by my LMP, which would be fine, if I hadn't O'd so early. But that will put me a week off! I'll see how it goes next week I guess!
