Since they count from the day of your last menstrual period and assume you conceived a textbook 14 days after that date, and I know the date I conceived, I just subtracted 14 days from that and gave THAT date to the doctor as the date of my last menstrual period. This way the EDD they gave me is forced to be based on my conception date!

I know that they calculate that way because it's a good ballpark until they can get sonogram measurements, but I've been tracking my cycles so I already came to the dr knowing my due date and exactly how far along I am, sooooooo they need to know too lol
Me: 25 DH: 27

"Mild" pcos, conceived DS1 on cycle #4 ttc
Baby B. 5/2014

BFP on first cycle TTC baby #2.. So surprised and happy!
