How pregnant am I?!

Postby Amv » Sat Mar 28, 2015 4:38 am

I got my bfp on Tuesday and a blood test confirmed on wed (12 dpo). My levels are looking good. Here is my question: my LMP was March 5 (24 days ago) but I had an iui on cd9. If I calculate my due date by LMP, it is December 10...that also makes me 3 weeks and 2 days pregnant. That sounds soooo early. If I calculate it by my conception date, my due date is December 4. I Know an ultrasound is the best indicator for a due date, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any feedback. My dh asked, "so how pregnant are you?" And I almost laughed when I said 3 weeks. Lol.

I mean, those dates are so close, it's really not an issue to be concerned with, lol. I found out I was pregnant at 9dpo, which made me just over 3 weeks pregnant, as well. I would think your doctor will go by your LMP, as that's the usual practice. If the ultrasound shows you're much farther ahead than your LMP puts you, they'll change the due date. I was measuring 6 days ahead at my last U/S, but my doctor is not changing my due date. So, there's a lot of wiggle room!

I calculated mine by conception date. If I went by lmp, my due date would be May 1st (which is what my ticker says) but it's actually May 4th because I ovulate later (cd17). My first ultrasound was dead on to my conception date.

I ovulated CD20 my bfp cycle, implanted 4dpo, bfp 9dpo. Going by LMP, my due date is July 20th, going by my O date, July 25th. Oddly enough, baby has been measuring right on for July 20th, so late ovulation did not affect my EDD.

Also, I had a buddy that tww that ovulated within 2 days of me, but on CD 12. She didn't get her bfp until about a week after me and her due date (and her baby's measurements) put her exactly a week behind me. That coincides with her LMP, which was a week after mine.

They will adjust your due date based on baby's growth if you are more than 2 weeks off.

I have a longer than average cycle so I always measure a week behind what my LMP dates suggest, but spot on when you adjust for a later ovulation.

Your first ultrasound should be pretty accurate and I would go by whatever they tell you when they have a good look.
