Had my 1st appt. yesterday

Went well. He did an ultrasound to rule out tubal and multiples. One baby and in the uterus!! Yahoo However my dates don't match up. My LMP was Sept 23rd. And DH and I only DTD on Oct. 9th. But he says I'm 5wks 5days and my due date is July 7th. I'm kinda confused. :confused: But he did say everythinhg looked ok. I talked to a friend and she said it sounds like my hubs lil guys just hung out a while and I ovulated a LOT later. Haha joking, it's prolly a girl then. LOL

Yay for a great appointment! Yahoo

Date issues here, too (will update my other post with details.) Despite the fact that Dr.s all seem to think every pregnancy should follow the "rule book" exactly, it seems like there is a lot more variation in these early weeks.

Well, according to your dates, if you have normal cycles, you ovulated on 10/6. And like your friend said, sperm can live up to 72 hours... and like you said, because of that, this baby is most likely a girl!

DH and I DTD on Oct 9th. According to the u/s I didn't ovulate until Oct 15th. So either I have miscarried or implanted late?!??? I dunno. I'm really confused

Yeah for a good appointment!!

I'm having similar date issues. I was on BC and didn't realize that the antibiotics I was taking at the time for strept throat could interfere with them; so I was not charting/tracking at the time. However, I do know when my LMP was, I know the few times DF and I DTD, and I know when I was supposed to ovulate. Which makes my now current due date confusing.

I'm waiting to see what my Dr says tomorrow, maybe it will change.

I think we've started a new tread of dating issues. I thought I was 8 weeks and was only 5 weeks 6 days. I don't know my cycle bc I've been on BC for 10 years. So there is a chance I ovulated late as well. I also didn't test positive until a week after my missed period. I have another US Thursday that will hopefully tell me something.

Sounds like you had a great appt though!
