Conception date Just Have Faith:) Due February 11 (girl); Florida 28 posts
11th Oct '11

Hey Yall.
I am completely new to these forums or groups. I just joined the Feb due date group as I am having a little girl due Feb 12th.



But, for those of you who have had babies, I was wondering how spot on doctors are when measuring babies, getting conceptions dates on or around the right day, and your due date?



Also, I was wondering if it was possible for me to have gotten pregnant in April, but be due feb 12th. My little girl measures completely perfect for being 22 weeks, not one day behind or ahead. She also measures right for being due feb 12th. My due date has not changed once.



Please Help & Give Opinions.. This is my first child!!

I had my son one day before my due date.. So I'd say my doctor was pretty right.
He was 8pounds 12oz though. haha

I actually knew my conception date (which was 18 days after my LMP). They based my due date on my LMP mot my conception date.



If you want to know how likely it is that you got pregnant in April what was you LMP date?

Since you are measuring close based on your due date I would stick to your due date. Ultrasounds can be off by 2 weeks. So yes it is possible you could have conceived end of April but based on your due date it would have been beginning of May. The first 2 weeks you aren't technically pregnant but they count you as 2 weeks at conception.

With my first i conceived either the 28th-29th of April and her due date was the 20th of July so unless you have some MAJOR long cycle i doubt you could have gotten prego in the month of April . However sperm can last days in you so its possible to ovulate late but i doubt it not with the due date you have .

My period in April was the 4th-8th. I was supposed to get my period on May 1st if I went by a typical 28 day cycle. But mine range between 30-33 days.. Never come exactly on the 28th. I took two pregnancy tests May 6th, which came back negative. Them on May 8th (only remember bc it was mothers day lol) I got my period and it lasted 3-4 days. Nothing was out of the ordinary with this period in May. BTW, b**bs never really got sore before periods.. Yet at the end of May before i was supposed to get my June period my b**bs were swollen and sore.
Hope this explains it better. So i am wondering if i was likely i conceived in April or in May..
