Do you think my doctor will go by my LMP which would put me due as 11-11 or on O date which is 11-15? I'll find out Wednesday I'm sure, I'm jut curious to see what y'all think.

I guess depending on what baby measures. My doc goes by LMP unless baby is off by a week. Curious if mine will change too since I ovulated on CD 20

6 weeks 10 weeks 4 weeks

I agree, probably your LMP. The doctor asked me if I wanted to change mien based on baby's measurement or not. I just stuck with based on LMP so I think I'll end up going early.

The OB I saw originally with my first and then the midwife I switched to both went by LMP even though I was certain when I had conceived. It's just easier I guess. My only concern would be if I thought I would go far past my due date, and then I'd prefer the later date if I would be pressured into inducing. I'm sticking with LMP personally because I went a bit before my due date with my first so I'm assuming I just don't bake babies as long and I'm not worried about hitting 42+ weeks with my second.

LMP. As long as baby measures within 7 days of lmp, they never usually vear from that.

I had my intake appt and armed with blood test dates they went with my ovulation date. I'm not going over due! Besides knowing I'll be a hormonal mess at the end, its dangerous as I had a placental abruption before. The risk goes up significantly if over due.

Omg I need to PM you! I want to ask some questions about that, my doctor is concerned about that because of so many csections.

Ps I guess I'm technically 8 weeks today then :-)

My doctor goes by LMP. Both times, She didn't even asked if I knew or tracked my ovulation date.

I was just thinking about something like this! I am technically 5-ish weeks r less because I didn't O until CD 20 and implant until cycle day 25....
*9 weeks * 4/11/13
*5 weeks * 6/22/13

If you know when you O'd, then IMO that is always the most accurate way to measure dates. The problem with going with your LMP if you ovulate really late, is that it's nice on paper to have an earlier date. But if you don't have exactly 28 day long cycles & ovulate literally on day 14 then it's not accurate. And not nice when you're 40 weeks gestation, but really only 39 & they want to evict baby Just my 2c's.
Oh & I am a late ovulator normally with long cycles
