    Smile EDD - LMP and long cycles

    I found out a week ago that I am pregnant. Going by my LMP I am 5wks5days pregnant. My LMP was 20th of November. However, I have 35 day cycles. Some pregnancy calculators put me at August 27 and some at Sept 3 (exactly one week apart). I am scheduled for my ultrasound on the 22nd of January when I should be 9 weeks (or maybe 8 weeks?). I know they use the ultrasound for EDD, but in the meantime what date do I take given my long cycles. I know when I ovulated and I have been tracking my cycles.

    Thanks in advance

    The BH pregnancy calculator takes into account your LMP, so it should be pretty accurate.

    Just use the search function in top RH corner- it already has pregnancy calculator typed into it (must be commonly searched for lol!)

    I have a discrepency too. LMP Nov 2, but I know I didn't ovulate til Dec 8? (Cd34!)

    So GP gave me date of Aug 10, being 8 weeks, when I reckon I'm only 5 weeks according to my temp charts.

    Having a dating scan next week to get a more accurate date.

    My gp went by my lmp and said I was 10 weeks pregnant. Went for a scan 2 weeks later (so should have been 12 weeks) but was only 8 weeks! (So 6 weeks when I found out)...

    Count ovulation as 2 wks, whenever it occurs.

    I agree with this. Ignore when LMP was, and go by ovulation date. So you're two weeks the day you ovulate, 4 weeks when you are 14 dpo

    I'd agree with your 5 weeks.

    I did ovulate on the 11th of December so that would make me 5 weeks today?
