so i dont have a due date? update
so i went in to see the doctor again today and he said he wont give me a due date til 18 weeks. he said if i need something to go bye go bye april 4th because its right around where he thinks i will be . i just said ok a smiled in the back of my head im like ... ok lol. he said everything looking good and i have a sono tomorrow and another one in a few weeks and another appointment. he said he will no alot more in a few weeks.

on a great note he got my insurance to cover my progesterone yay!!!!! my insurance is not happy but whatever lol saves my 600 a month. this gel foam stuff is kinda messy after a few days but im not having any side effects that alot of people do so im ok with the mess if it is working great.

forgot to add. everywhere online says in due april first and today i would be 5 weeks my doctor showed me on his wheel thing useing april 4th as a due date that im 5 week 3 to 4 days, how dose this make sence im father along with a farther away due date? i give up lol

ill update with sono pics tomorrow :)

Well that is kind of crappy that they won't give you a due date. I wonder if it's because they are unsure when you O'd or what there reasoning is. But I would think by going off your ultrasound you should know roughly how far along you are which will give you an approximate due date. I can't wait to see your pictures :)

Re: so i dont have a due date? update
yeah that's kind of odd, although i have heard that some OBs are doing that (not giving a precise due date) to try to get pregnant women not to focus so much on the actual due date, since for most it's more like a range of weeks to when baby will actually make it's appearance. If it's worrying you (it shouldn't - just use 4/4 for now!) ask your OB why at your next appt. I'm glad everything else is going ok!

Sounds like a good appointment. Not sure about why he wouldn't give you a due date. My OB just goes off my LMP until my first u/s.

Let us know how your u/s goes. Good Luck.

That's weird that it sounds like he's going to base your due date off of your anatomy scan rather than your scan that you'll get next week. For dating purposes the earlier ultrasounds are more accurate.
