Obsess with me a bit please (OT, pg ment)

I know this isn't the place to post this at this point but I don't think I can join a BB just yet!! Here's why. I can't decide on my EDD. If I go my LMP, my EDD would be 3/13/2012, but even on 7/22 I was getting BFN's. I tested on Tuesdy 7/26 with a BFN.

With LMP on 6/7, AF 'should' have been due 7/12 (based on what used to be a normal cycle for me). I started testing then and the first very faint BFP I got was on 7/29. I think I O'd between 7/12 and 7/14, which would make my EDD 4/4/1012.

I am going to try to get a dating u/s scheduled soon, but in the meantime, what do you think?

I haven't got a clue how to help you but I say join the April board. I've enjoyed being "ahead" of the board because its meant less worrying about being "behind" IYKWIM.

What should I tell the doc about my LMP? I kind of want to say that I haven't had one yet so that they will give me a dating u/s and go by that date. I am afraid that if I tell them the truth they will go by the June date which will put me further along than I am and cause concern. Does that make sense?

Do what you feel you need to say, you are still bfing and have wonky cycles so a dating ultrasound is likely to best, you don't want them to think you are further along and be pushing a repeat c section because you are overdue when really baby is a couple of weeks behind that.

you could just tell them you have no idea when your lmp was:)

Even if you tell your doc your LMP, they'll know you have a 10 month old and will ask about the regularity of your cycle. They'll likely do a dating U/S. Don't most OBs do them routinely anyway?

I'd be honest about your LMP but tell them that since you're still BFing your cycles are extremely inconsistent and you really want to be dated because you don't think you're that far along.

Hmmmmmmm.....I was in a similar boat w/Delaney. I "O" about a week later than most and fudged my LMP w/my doctor.

I would tell your dr. you don't know your LMP....the sooner they do the dating ultrasound the better. They can date better the earlier you are.

CONGRATS AGAIN!!!!! :wootjump:

I'd either go with the latest date or ask for a dating u/s. Its crazy how off the time of O is these first couple of cycles. I went from Oing on day like 5 of a cycle to Oing on day 25 the next. And join both boards for now!

Ya know, you should join both boards and decide which one you like better. Wink

I agree. Join both! You'll never like them better than you like us so does it really matter? Wink

I'd say just tell the doc you don't know when your LMP was. That's what I told them w/ my DD. And I wish I'd done that w/ Lucas, b/c I knew I had to have O'd way off of when it was "normal" being pg at all when I was. If they would have dated him off the 1st u/s, he would have been born exactly on his due date instead of a few days before.

And I agree, join both boards and see which one you like better. Or you can just obsess w/ us until you get your EDD. Dirol

If you want an u/s to date your pregnancy, your best bet is to tell them that you cant remember your last menstral cycle, otherwise they will base your EDD off of that..

That is what I did with Natalie because I honestly couldnt remember the exact date but I knew it was within a few days..
