Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

I know when I conceived. I was gone for a week, home Friday, preggo Sat, gone again Sunday for another week. DH joked about doing a DNA test.

They calculated my DD by day of last period 5/9. I told them it was off because my cycles were longer than 28days and they were using date of conception as day 14. I told them it was day 19. I went 40wk+5days. She came 5/14. By my estimate - that made exactly 40wks.

But of course that isn't the reason she came that day. She came that day b/c my MIL was doing some kind of voodoo or boiling newts or something. It was her birthday, and her son's birthday (my DD uncle). So it made 3 generations born on the same day.

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

I also knew my conception dates and my kids have all been born at different times (39w4d, 38w2d, 40w2d, 34w4d, & 40w1d). I'm of the opinion that kids just come when they're ready.

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

I knew conception dates exactly for 2 of my kids. Both of those were born within 2 days of the DD. This time I'm not certain, and it's not as much fun

40 + 2
and
39 + 5

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

DS1, I knew when I ovulated. EDD: Sept 3, induced and sectioned Sep 9.

With this one, my first early ultrasound matched EXACTLY according to my ovulation. I went in knowing I was 7w5d, the ultrasound confirmed that. EDD of April 1. We'll see how close I give birth to that date.

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

I know we conceived on Father's Day last year, but the 8 wk u/s showed 2 days behind. With DD, we knew the date of conception but she measured behind on the u/s and I was induced at 41 wks. I think my babies just bake longer.

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

With my first, I had no idea what date I conceived, and my due date was based on ultrasounds. She was 3 days early.

With my second, I did IVF, I know exactly what days fertilization and transfer were, and the due dates were changed four times, based on ultrasound. She was 3 days early according to the conception dates, she was 10 days early according to the ultrasound due date.

With my 3rd, I know of only 2 possible conception dates, her due date was pretty spot on according to the second one, but then I was induced 10 days early from that.

Re: If you knew the day you conceived...

I'm definitely interested to find out! I have no idea when I conceived. My BC completely stopped my periods for three years. Conception was calculated based on when I finished my last pack of BC pills. I stopped taking them August 13th and and found out I was pregnant on September 22nd.

Still, it looks right now like they got really close, even with fuzzy dates. She's consistently been 3 days smaller on the last 3 u/s than the EDD. The OB said to expect up to 14 days difference, so I'm shocked that the dates are measuring up this consistently!
