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.

Basically the doctor would ask you when was the first day of your last menstruation, and if you have a regular cycle.. and usually conception happens after two weeks from your last period (14th day for regular 28-day cycle)..because that's the peak of women's fertility. but idk about the irregulars, coz that's were I based mine since im regular.. let's wait til other mommies share their knowledge and experience. Anyway, just to share, I also got my transvaginal ultrasound very early  and there was only a sac with no fetal pole. I was worried that it could be a failure. But i was asked to return after 2weeks, and the ultrasound revealed that i was 7-8weeks pregnant already  based on the size of the baby and due on july. I was so happy to see my baby's heartbeat :) i hope both our baby would be born healthy :p
I am also due on the 15th of August. Concieved on the 22nd of November,with a last period beginning on the 8th of November.Congrats! What fun...we share a due date.:)
