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.

What's my due date?

2 answers
Ok, so I'm getting 2 different dates and don't know which is correct? The first day of my last period was Nov. 29th. I ovulated Dec. 21st. When I tested on 7 DPO I got my first BFP. Should I go by the first day of my last period or my ovulation date when calculating what week I'm in? Baby dust to all!!!!

I go by the first day of my last period. Baby center has a pregnancy due date calculator, It was very accurate with all my kids, but I reccommend having your doctor give you a due date because it will be more accurate.
You should go by the first day of your last period, that's the way doctors calculate it since most women do not no know the exact day that they ovulate and conceive. you can always ask for an ultrasound to be done in your first trimester to get a more official date.
