Maybe an odd question! I've been mulling it over in my mind and cannot come up with anything. I'm scheduled to have my first Dr. visit in a couple of weeks so I will ask her opinion then, but I keep hearing they only guess anyway!
My LMP was Jan. 21. Cycles tend to be 31 days, though I did have a 37 day cycle several months ago.
I didn't temp or use opk's the cycle I got pregnant, just paid attention to cm. I only had one day of ewcm that cycle and it was on cd 14. I figured I wouldn't o til cd 17 at the earliest. Another issue would be hubby and I dtd on either cd 11 or 12 and then not again until cd 19! (and various times later in the cycle).
So I have no idea when I got pregnant because I apparently didn't ovulate anywhere near where I thought I did. Does that one day of ewcm mean I for sure ovulated that day? I either ovulated early or late!
Has anybody else had this happen with a pregnancy? If so, what did you find out? Thanks for any input, it's fun to speculate!

Well sperm can survive as long as 6-7 days so if you had sex a while before you O'd it's still possible that you conceived.

If you have a 31 day cycle you would have probably been fertile between Feb 4-9. Did you have sex anywhere around that time?

With a LMP of Jan 21st and a 31 day cycle you'd probably be due around October 31st.

We actually did bd February 8. I would have assumed that's what did it except for the one day of ewcm on cd 14 (Feb. 3). After that day it immediately went back to super creamy then not much at all. So confusing!
And yes, the lady that gave me the clinical pg test to confirm put me at October 30. Though I'm gonna be trying to have a Halloween baby

its really hard to tell exactly when you got pregnant. i know my dr told me that they go from the first day of your last period again guessing at how far along you will be. once they to a u/s they can measure and tell exactly how far along you are!! congrats on the lil one!!

Thanks, and that's good to know! I believe I'll be having an u/s when I go in for my first appointment (at 10 weeks). If they are really that accurate then that should clear it up.

I couldn't figure out when I conceived Breana cause it wasn't when I thought it was but with this one I am pretty sure when it happened.

Congrats on the pregnancy!!!

Well, we only dtd once when we got pregnant and I still don't know exactly when we conceived. lol

I thought I knew but when they did the u/s they put it later than I had thought. So you're not alone.

Same here! The first time I went to the doc and the u/s tech said the baby was measuring two weeks ahead of schedule I thought there was no way. Just hoping I don't have a super large baby growing in there!

even with military if you tell them you have no idea and you've narrowed it down to months rather than weeks it is highly possible they will give you one for dating because that is important to know.

I had to have an u/s to date this pregnancy. AND WE TRIED FOR 9 MONTHS!!!! I found out I was pg when I was on CD 67! I thought I MIGHT have O'ed but my temps were all over the place. I had lots of previous anovulatory cycles, and on CD 30-something I started spotting, I gave up temping, OPK's, everything, because I was SURE it was another cycle with no O. Guess I was wrong!

With KJ and Owen I could not figure out when or how I was pregnant. I still can't figure it out.

DH and only DTD once too, but since I was using OPKs, I know the date.
