Due Date???

Postby amandar63 » Sat Oct 08, 2011 3:20 am

I am so confused now as to when my due date really is???? I am pg through IVF, and my original due date was 4/22, but I had a scan yesterday and they said 4/19 based on the measurement. I know that the due date doesn't really matter because they usually aren't born on that day, but should I be using the date based on my egg retrieval or the measurement of the baby?

Normally in a "regular" pregnancy the early ultrasound date is the most accurate b/c women aren't always SURE of ovulation/LMP dates. BUT with IVF- you know the EXACT date of egg retrieval so I would go with that date. But give or take a few days is as pretty accurate either way b/c we all know babies come when they want to!!

Thanks for the info! I know it isn't a huge difference, but I didn't know which date to track how far along I was. I'll use the date given to me based on my egg retrieval date.

THis is my second IVF pregnancy and I have figured both of mine from the retrieval date. There is a great pregnancy calculator at http://ivf.ca/duedate.php I used this and it was pretty accurate with my delivery for the first time around with the twins. THis time around I have a singleton and they keep changing my due date too-its annoying! :)
