According to the interwebs, my due date would be 10/3/13. My last period began on Dec 26, 2012 and in the last few months, my cycles have been about 34-36 days long. I have been reading online that the predicted date can be very inaccurate, especially when your cycles don't conform to the typical 28 day intervals. How would I go about figuring out a slightly more accurate date?

Thanks!

That's a good idea.. I will just use the date they give me now as a ballpark and then get some confirmation a little later. :-D I need to learn patience, especially since getting that BFP!

I am unable to post links, but there is a calculator I use at work which uses cycle length to estimate dates that may help.
Type in "pregnancy calculator c-point" into a search engine and it should be the first link to come up.

@holabebe - this is great! I think this could be more accurate. Now the due date went from Oct 3 to Oct 9. I don't think I'm going to change my peanut ticker until the ultrasound, but this is what I'll use as the date now.

I know when I ovulate and I go by that. I do have odd cycles though. Usually you will get a due date by LMP, and if needed it will be adjusted if things are measuring way off in an ultrasound.
