I knew what my due date was so I could make a ticker! If I go by my LMP (8/26), I am due June 2 (or 3, I can't remember) but I am thinking I ovulated late because when I tested on 9/27 I got a BFN. And then I didn't test again until 10/1 when I got a decent positive. The thing that really sucks is that I'm pretty sure they won't do an u/s at my initial appointment, and I am thinking that's going to be the best way to figure it out! AND I haven't even set up an appointment anyway! I wish I would have charted in Sept so I could know for sure when I O'd!
I agree with Sarah, I think if you go in there and say you're not sure about when you conceived or ovulated, even if you do know when your LMP was, they should do an u/s to be sure. I knew exactly when my LMP was, when I O'd and how long my cycle is (29 days) and they still did an u/s on me to date it.
Here if you say you aren't sure when your LMP was, they will do an ultrasound to date it. Not sure if they do that there. I'm in the same boat though. My ticker is just based on my LMP but I'm pretty sure it's wrong.
Well, with my last pregnancy I had to do a "nurse visit" first, which was so stupid, and I hope it's just a "first pregnancy" thing they do, because it was pointless. If I can get to the doc immediately instead of doing that joke of an appointment, I should be able to get an u/s right away. Cross your fingers for me, ladies! Calling in the AM to schedule an appointment!
I am a little confused as well, because my chart was funky this month. I may have O'd 2 days earlier, which would put me at a May 28th due date, but if I go by when FF marked O, I am due June 1st. Or, I couldn't have O'd twice, which means a possibility of twins.
Hopefully they will just get you in for a regular appointment and do an u/s to date the pregnancy. KUP!
