Confused About Due Date

MandyRenee - March 1

So I have a question, my due date was estimated at September 9th. But I went in for an ultrasound Tuesday and it is now October 12th. That moves me back a whole month, and the problem is that I took a home test before they are saying I started and it was positive. Any ideas on that? I didnt really think about it when I was at the doctors, I just thought Wow, I was way off. The techinician said everything was fine, heartbeat was normal for the size, I just dont see how I was off a whole month.

Oh, also I remember my last period was the very beginning of december. I remember thinking that I might have one again on New Years Eve. They said conception was around January 10th is this possible?

Mandy; I am kinda in the same boat as you. I do not remember my exact LMP but I know it was around 12/15-12/19 or so. Well that would put me due 9/25-9/29. When I went for my ultrasound the doctor put me back to 10/7 due date. That would put my conception date at 1/15, well I took my 1st home test on 1/19 and got positive. So I know the ultrasound was a little wrong. They didn't put me back a month but around 2 weeks. The baby had a very strong heartbeat and everything looked good so I am not going to worry about it anymore. It could be that the baby is just lacking behind a little bit and will catch up later. Try not to worry too much but if you are concerned then call you doctor and speak with them about the dates. I have had 2 previous m/c so I understand worrying but all you can do is take it one day at a time. The people on here have helped me release that and they are very comforting. I know I am not answering your question but hopefully atleast knowing you are not alone will help some.

I guess if you ovulated really late you could have concieved around Jan. 10th, but if you are your last period was early Dec. then I would say that is probably wrong. You should have concieved somewhere around the 15th-20th if your period was the first week of Dec. I concieved on Dec 7th or so and my due date is Aug. 26th. I don't know how they are figuring Oct. for you. I would think begginning of September maybe a little latter if you ovulated late, but not Oct.. When was your test positve?

My home test was positive on the 8th as far as I remember. I talked to my doctor today and he said that my Jan. period must have just not came for some reason, which hasn't happened to me since I was like 13. I'm not too worried about it I guess it just seems strange, I thought the ultrasounds were supposed to be more acurate, and a whole month off seems strange.
