Haha that's hilarious!

Ok, help me out here. I'm having a really hard time figuring this out. My ticker and my WTE app both say I was 20 weeks yesterday. If you count 20 weeks from my LMP (MONDAY Oct. 13) you land on MONDAY March 2nd. If you count 20 more weeks, you get MONDAY July 20th, my due date. Urgent care told me I had to go to L&D at the birth center because I was 20 weeks. When I got there, they told me I wasn't yet and to go to the ER. When I followed up with my OB's office today, I asked the nurse there, and she says I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow. This is not making ANY SENSE TO ME!!!

Did your ultrasound give a slightly different date? Or maybe they went off your o day instead of lmp? I know there are a few ways to calculate due date. But the most common one you add a year, subtract 3 months, then add a week from lmp.

That's really weird! Mine all say Monday and my lmp would be Oct. 20. 1 week after you! Your people are either confused or haven't been communicating right

That's the weird thing... I just went and looked at my ultrasound pics. The ultrasound was done 12 weeks 2 days but baby measured 12 weeks exactly, so the machine said EDD was July 22nd. My doc said we would keep my original due date because the size of the baby at that point can vary. The L&D lady only asked for my due date. I don't know what other info she had. My OB is contracted with the hospital and they were alerted that I was coming, so maybe she was able to see other info before I got there. When I talked to the nurse at the OB's office today she did the same thing- just asked what my due date was and then, I assume, used the little wheel to figure out where I was. I understand if it's different based on the ultrasound, but neither of them mentioned it, only my due date.

So they told you the same due date, but said you'll be 20 weeks tomorrow? Or they told you a different due date too? That's so weird.

They both confirmed my original due date- Monday July 20th. So why I would be turning over a new week on a Wednesday makes no sense.

Yeah I just went to the dr today and she used the little wheel and agreed I turned 19wks yesterday. You should ask them how it's possible to be 2 days off

Yeah that's so weird. Maybe discuss it with your dr next apt. At least after tomorrow it wont matter by anyone's strange calculations.

Maybe they just listened to what the hospital said and didn't verify it themselves because they assumed the math was right. I'm sure they'll correct themselves at some point!

Well I wouldn't care about a day or two either, other than the fact that that day or two meant 2 more miserable hours waiting for desperately needed IV fluids! Even if their official counting puts me at 20 weeks tomorrow, I can't believe they wouldn't help me. I'm just still really irritated about it. The nurse at the OB's office said, well try not to get sick again until at least tomorrow, and then they'll have no excuses! Yeah... my goal is no more hospital visits until it's to deliver the baby!

I will definitely ask my Dr. when I see her, though.

Seriously... I'm trying to put it behind me now that I got the help I needed and I'm feeling better! I have more important things to focus on, like the fact that by this time tomorrow, I should know what I'm having!

Sometimes all these protocols and rules get placed and make it hard for them to actually help. I find a lot of older nurses are really mean too. They are just burnt out and don't care anymore. I hope that never happens to me. I am a licensed nurse but am staying home until I finish my registered nursing classes. It's for a bachelor's, and I am taking forever!

That's totally true! This lady was in her 50s and was very short with me. Same thing in the ER. I started out with a really nice younger nurse, and even though she took about an hour to get my IV going after saying she'd be back in 5 minutes, she was really pleasant and nice to me. Then came the shift change and that old lady was just ready to get me out of there. She unhooked my IV when I still had half a bag of fluids left! And she took my temperature without a cover on the probe. She thought she got one, but apparently it didn't click. Not once did she introduce herself or ask how I was doing. I don't even think she looked me in the eye, she was all business and just wanted to get me out of there.
