May have to change dr (xposted)
Ugh! I am so frustrated. IF my midwife chooses to go by the date the ultrasound has given, then I will have to find a new dr/mw because she is going to be on "vacation" during that time. The thing is, the date the Ultra sound says for conception is impossible. Dh and I didn't have sex for a week before that and 5 days after. So it is not possible. I am hoping she will listen to me and keep my due date as Aug 28-Sept 1 (yes that is how she wrote it in my chart...lol, I don't get an "actual" due date she says). It really sucks because if I have to find someone else my dream of a waterbith and/or home birth are gone. My insurance only covers CNM and there isn't another one in the area. I would get stuck birthing in a hospital. I am just so bummed, I hope she calls early tomorrow so I can figure out what is going to happen. I am just kicking myself for giving in to the early ultrasound (which I only did because i had had some bleeding for 24 hours and was concerned) knowing that they can be inaccurate (were with both my kids).

Bummer I hope she listens to you. My ultrasound puts me due June 4th which is not possible either. We only dtd Sept 1st LOL thankfully my midwife is going off my date because I know my body best.

Just let her know your fears and let her know the conception stuff....How far is the change....Does she have a substitute that would be there? I guess what makes me think is that she already agreed to take you on as a client, right? And even with your original due date...there is a two week give or take....so why did she agree to take you in the first place if your EDD was SO close to her vacation date...you know..

Anyway...My midwife went with the ultra sound date that to me seemed way off....but it was later than my original one and that gives me a few more days to play with if I DO go overdue before I have to think about induction....so I went with it....but my situation is completely different from yours. HUGS

My midwife said that she doesn't use ultrasounds for determining a due date as they can be so off the mark. I would just explain your worries and let her know that the date on ultrasound couldn't be right based on time of DTD. ;)

Ditto to the other ladies. Express your concerns with her... I know with each of my kids exactly when conception was. my midwives always went by what I said rather than u/s dating.

Ditto - My midwives just went with what I said - and the later ultra sounds confirmed MY dates :)
