What was the first day of your last period? Your EDD is 40 weeks from that date. HOWEVER...what day did you ovulate on? (My EDD is June 10 based on my LMP but I say June 8 because I O'd 2 days early). Even though you BD'd 4 days early, if you O'd on the 11th, your EDD would be June 4, based on ovulation, regardless of what you started your period.

I'm not a medical professional but pregnancy is my hobby. Have you ever read Taking Charge Of Your Fertility? it's a book by Toni Weschler, and I recommend every woman read it. It can show you how to get pregnant, how to avoid pregnancy,. and debunks all myths about the female body that, unfortunately, old school doctors keep telling us.

Basically if you KNOW when you O'd, 38 weeks after that day would be an accurate EDD. Keep in mind that only 5% of women deliver on their EDD though!
Thanks Kiliki for the siggy!
