Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My OB and I do not agree on my due date. According to my lmp my due date is 2/15 and I know exactly when I concieved so I agree with this date. My OB based my due date on a 9 weeks ultrasound and says that my due date is 2/23. Every u/s dince the 9 week one baby has measured 1-2 weeks ahead of OB's date, making mine sound more accurate. But she is stillnot hearing it.. I was really frustrated at first but I have now decided that baby decides when he arrives so we will see

Your due date is an estimate. Usually it is based on your last monthly period, but sometimes they use an ultrasound like for BabyReedsmama. Your baby will decide when s/he is ready, which could be as much as 2 weeks before or after the date the doc gives you.Good luck :)

Even if you and your doctor agree on the due date, there is a chance you won't have your baby that day regardless. Focus on preparing for your baby and not on the due date!

That's very true what preppyitbull says, focus on the babe. Due dates are educatated guesses. Your babe can be born 2 weeks before or after the "due date". It's a guideline for the docs and you to follow for development and prenatal care. The docs will usually go on ultrasound dates if that one and your LMP is more than 10 days apart or so.

It is pointless to get frustrated and argue with your OB about a due date. Whatever the date, the baby will come when it's ready, rarely do they come on the exact day that has been predicted. Arguing with your OB about a due date may make for an unnecessarily strained relationship with someone who is more than likely going to be with you during one of the most important times of your life. Agree to disagree, and know that yes, the OB can sometimes be wrong. Also, keep in mind that although you may be convinced of the day you conceived, our bodies throw us curveballs all the time.Oh and by the way, that date is fast approaching! The most important thing the due date tells us is that we need to get prepared! :)

My doctor told me that my due date was different after I had my ultrasound with my daughter.  They didn't bother changing it though since it was within a week.  I was due with her on Nov 26, and she was born on the 22.  My nurse with my first pregnancy once told me that she wished it would be a standard "due week".  The changed my son's due date from March 6th to March 15 and he wasn't born on either day.

If staying for a weekend, then there is the Alton Towers Hotel that has some great themed family rooms. Alton Towers Like Drayton Manor and other theme parks, Alton Towers opening times vary throughout the year. Try not to ride it immediately after lunch or you may have trouble keeping it down! There's everything from hardcore thrill-seekers rides to some much less scary ones here - so there should be something for everyone! The park is a mix of aquarium attractions and rides. London is the New York of Europe and is packed with palaces, fortresses, museums, perfectly landscaped parks and more. Every day is an adventure at Alton Towers Resort. A highly rated hotel near to the Peak District National Park is The Derbyshire Hotel South Normanton. Or, ride the Dragon Coaster to travel through a full-size Lego castle and fly over a Lego town! Another tragic incident in Durham saw two women die, a three-year-old girl ended up with serious personal injuries and 30 visitors were tipped out when an inflatable art instillation was tossed 30 feet up into the air by the wind. So, if you are tempted to stay over on a family break to maximise the fun, then check availability and prices at the Alton Towers Resort official website. Have you ever wished you could experience the sensation of gliding through the air like a bird in flight? SeaWorld Orlando is home to several other thrill rides, most notably their Kraken floorless coaster and Journey to Atlantis, a water coaster ride. Even that games console. Nothing ruins a seaweed bath faster than a whining toddler; since guests usually pay extra for these amenities, water parks with an adjacent fitness area limit attendance to adults only. X-Sector One of Alton Towers' most talked about rides, Oblivion, can be found in X-Sector. Adventure Land Aimed at older kids (aged 5 to 11) Adventure Land has lots to see and do. You sit in a circular "boat" and ride down the swirling rapids between two concrete walls. It is a fantastic alternative venue to take a bunch of friends and family for a birthday party or other special occasion; much better than a game of pass the parcel and far more exciting! And while it is a bit expensive it will be worth it to book your family a meal at one of the major hotels for High Tea, a truly British experience. A small section of the park is open to the public during the weeks leading up to Christmas, as well. Vacationing in Europe is not for adults only, no matter what many people believe about the difficulty of getting children across an ocean. You can find everything from high street favourites to designer stores and novel shops to get something a little different. So unlike many of the other theme parks in the world you just might find yourself coming going back to Alton Towers theme park over and over. Alton isn't just about the theme park thrills, however. Brave the thrill rides - big kids only! Here you can ride in a tumbler coaster where you all of a sudden fall down a steep Ninety degree incline into a black hole that is gaping up at you. There are regular bus services from these train stations to the resort area. Oblivion If you don't like rollercoasters with big drops, you won't want to try Oblivion.
