Re: Due date calculation help

DDs are kind of a joke anyway... how many babies actually come on time? There are also several different ways to calculate, here is a fun calculator I like to play with: http://www.10moonsrising.com/id81.html
Like everyone else, if I were you I might go with 10/11/12 just cause it's cool. haha!

Also, my MW pointed out something that I had never thought of, which is if you pick a DD that's out a little farther and you wind up going past your DD you will spend less time obsessing about how "overdue" you are- AND if you are dealing with OBs, that's more time you have to let you baby come on it's own time rather than being pressured into an induction. For that reason my MW uses the Woods (I think that's the one) method to calculate. Just food for thought.

My DD was born on her due date too! That's the only reason I take DD seriously. Doc thought she was going to be 2 weeks early which made waiting for the DD seem like forever.

I did my calcuatlations based on conception and used mymonthlycycle.com which is what I used for tracking my cycle. I just checked a bunch of others and they all said the same thing.

I O'd on the 18th and conception was morning of the 19th... AF was due the 4th. Last cycle started on January 2nd. Based on conception I got 10/11/12, based on LMP its 10/8/12... I think I'll stick with 10/11/12 for 2 reasons, 1. its cool and 2. I think its more accurate.

Woods says 10/10/12

I KNOW. I still do things just to be contrary even when it's in my own best interest not to... It's almost like it's instinctual for me.

At least you don't get the + 8 day penalty for being a first baby loser. Hhaha. I feel like I got demoted.

Using Woods my EDD is only 1 day later, but I calculated my EDD based on when I O'd not LMP, LMP would put me at the end of Sept.

hahaha! Well if it makes you feel better my first baby was my earliest at 39w, baby 2 was 39.5w and baby 3 was 41.5 w so yeah, this time I'm pretty sure I'll be pregnant forever.
