It's the first day of your last period, but even if you have no idea the first u/s will date your pg pretty accurately.

With dd, I also wasn't sure about the exact date - and it is the first day of your period that is cycle day 1. I was able to estimate a three-ish day range, and the ultrasounds verified it was prob. one of those days. Just write the date range you think is correct on the paperwork they give you.

Or are you like who has NO idea when their last period was?

As far as calling the doctor, I totally guessed However, I thin I guessed on the "not as far along" side, so I have to wait to get an appointment. My appointment is on Monday. I will ask about later ultrasounds and precise due dates. I know that the further along you are, the less precise they can give via ultrasound.

(My range is between 6-12 weeks pregnant.)

Most of the mommas I have known who were unsure of their LMP they told them that they didn't know how far along they were when they called to make their appointment and got in pretty quick because the doc's office wanted to find that out , so that's what I would do myself .
