Hi, I am new to the board. I have a few questions and wanted to ask because I am driving my self absolutely crazy!

According to my LMP, which is Feb. 20, I should be 8 weeks.....BUT, I ovulate late in my cycle. Usually 19-22. I have used the Clearblue Fertility monitor on all of my children..but this month it did not detect ovulation. I think my urine must have been too diluted for the monitor. After I had BFP, I new that obviously I had ovulated....ugghh so frustrating.

I started testing on March 20th with very faint positive and did a progression all the way until test line was darker than control line.

Fast forward, I had my OB appt. on April 12th. Due to 2 past miscarriages(1 at 17 weeks and one at 12 weeks) and being diagnosed with clotting disorder, they let me come in a few days early. The vaginal ultrasound showed baby measuring at 6w and 1 day. Heartbeat was 118. I new the dates would be off from my LMP due to late ovulation. I am super worried that baby is measuring too small.

OB didn't seem worried but I am just beside myself.

Does anybody know if this sounds right? Any similar experiences?

Also to add to my worries, I am not having any symptoms...my BBs might be a little tender, but not like my previous pregnancies. I am constipated(sorry TMI) No nausea...nothing.

Forgot to add that OB said due date was December 4th.

I am not an expert on any of this, but it sounds like maybe you did ovulate late in your cycle. I know it's disconcerting to think your baby is measuring too small but if you don't know your ovulation date, I would just try (HA! I know this is so hard) to relax!!

It's awesome that you saw baby and heartbeat! I, too, saw baby with heartbeat at 6weeks1 day and I have had very little symptoms except for sore breasts and not being very hungry/ a little tired. I am hoping all is well in there and it sounds like a good Dr. report!!!

Also, after doing some math, I think if you ovulated on Cycle Day 23 ish you would be right on to be due December 4th

I had the same problem I was 8weeks by lmp but my babies both measured 6w1d and the only symptom I have been having is nausea and sleepy...as long as the baby had a heart beat then he or she is growing try not to stress and relax...

Always go off of gestational age & size by US instead of relying on LMP. It is too easy to have dates messed up by going off LMP for the exact reason you O'd late.

This cycle I dont think I O until CD 36 so my dates would be almost 3 weeks off if we went off my LMP.

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

Thanks...I know this is crazy, but I was looking on my phone calendar yesterday and I noticed that I put a note that I ovulated on March 12th. For the life of me, I can't remember doing that. I wonder if I was having what I thought was mild ovulation pains, so I stuck that bit of info in my calendar so that I wouldn't forget. Normally, I have strong ovulation pains and there is no doubt when I am ovulating according to CM....but this month was just different all around. Anyways, now I am wondering if I did O on the 12th.

Sorry for all the worry. I know how hard it is to be pregnant after miscarriages (I've BTDT) but if you ovulated on March 12th, everything seems to be going great! I ovulated March 12th and my due date is Dec 3rd according to the due date calculators so right where you are.

I ovulated 3/15 and on the 4/14, my baby measured 6w1d with a h/b of 114. (due 12/6) Sounds like your spot on!
