Due date calculation help
 
Ok, I'm getting conflicting info on the due date calculators. My last period was 1/5/2012. Some sites say 10/11 and some say 10/12. Which is my due date? I don't go to the doctor until past 8 weeks so I want to figure this out! Help appreciated!

Which one do you like better? :giggle: Honestly, I don't think one day of difference matters, so pick what one you like.

Unless, did you chart or anything before you conceived? I mean, if you know your cycle really well and if you know when you ovulated, you can calculate your due date by ovulation date which would be more accurate if your cycles aren't the textbook 28 days w/ ovulation at day 14.

Theres sooo many ways to calculate.. I dont 100% know why they bother with exact days. I think a range would be more useful. I just use the baby center one but since this is my first, i know some calculators will estimate my due date to be 8 days later.

I just tried 4 different calculators and they all said Oct 11.

I also say pick which one you like -- I would go with the later one because you'll have an extra day before risking out of anything. ;)

It's a leap year this year. Maybe that's throwing it off.

Oooh, hadn't thought of that. But my LMP was Jan 5 too, and all the calculators I've tried have said Oct 11 for the dd. But at least for me, I know that's wrong since I didn't O until cd 21, so I'm actually due the 18th. Anyway, like others have said, it doesn't really matter if it's only a day different! I'd pick the 11th because it's fun to say your due date is 10/11/12 :)

Mine is weird because I had a frozen embryo transfer so my cycle was medically managed but when they gave me a due date of 10/11/12 they said it would adjust my last menstral period to 1/5 not 1/3 which it actually was. If that helps you any, I think it's 10/11/12!

That's what I was thinking, too.
