I had a dating u/s at 6 1/2 weeks. My MW only does it if you are unsure of dates or specifically ask. I had a 50+ day cycle so I wanted a better idea of my EDD.

My first appt won't be until I am about 10 1/2 weeks, I think on 11-3.

Re: When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

I have to have a confirm appt somewhere so I can qualify for medicaid. After that, it prob won't be until 12 wks or so....

Mine is on tuesday at about 5.5 weeks. They think I'm about 9 wks b/c they're going off my LMP, which was aug. 14, but according to my chart I'm only 5.5 wks.

Re: When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

Mine is the 25th of October. I think I will be right at 7 weeks. Not sure if it is just a confirmation appointment or what. I am going to try and have dual care with my family practice doctor and home birth midwife. I am terrified of the doctors at our local hospital so I would like to have a backup ready in case I had to transfer for some reason.

Re: When is/was your 1st Dr Apt?

I have to take my children to the health department for WIC Nov 4th, so I am going to have them do a confirmation then. Going by LMP I will be 7 weeks, but by my calculations I will be 5 weeks. DH and I only DTD twice last month and I have a 28 days cycle with ovulation around day 14-15(I cramp when I ovulate) so I am confident on when I conceived. Unless I have problems before then I plan on waiting until about 13-14 weeks before I go. The nearest hospital that delivered babies stopped last year, so I have to find some where else. It will be between an hour to an hour and a half in any directions to the nearest hospital that delivers babies. The nearest female doctor that I know of, is almost a two hour drive away.

If you have a 28 day cycle and you ovulated at 14 days then you would be 7 weeks pregnant. Your date would be calculated from the FIRST day last menstrual cycle. Am I wrong?

Like, my LMP was on Sept 11th. So if I went with that day and if I ovulated 14 days later, I would be 6 weeks pregnant now. But I was tracking my ovulation and I ovulated on CD 22 Oct. 1st. so it has only been 2 weeks since my Ovulation day but they calculate 2 weeks added to your O day. does that makes sense

AFM: I will see my MW at 10-12 weeks. Unless I have bleeding or something that makes me feel like I need to go in sooner.

I understand how they calculate it. It makes sense and it does not make sense. It makes sense as in I understand how it is calculated and it does not make sense in how in the hello could I be two weeks when I just conceived. My LMP was Sept. 14 and I ovulated on the 27th. So saying that I was already two weeks on the 27th makes me The baby will get here when it gets here, just hopefully not to soon. DH is over the moon right now because his birthday is in June. We are hoping that is a sign that we may get lucky and not only have a healthy baby, but also a boy this time.

They go from your LMP because most women do not know when they ovulated. But I agree, it is kinds silly. haha
