    Default lmp due date vs ovulation due date

    Has anyone used their ovulation date to work out your edd?? Going by my LMP I am 4.6 weeks pregnant, I ovulated late in my cycle so going by ovulation date I'm 4 weeks today. Will be interesting to see what date my scan shows in a few weeks time

    Use ovulation as it is more accurate.
    Lmp assumed 14days till ovulation so if you don't sync with that it will be incorrect.

    I used ovulation to book my dating scan and was spot on, if I used lmp I would have been 10days out and likely would have been too early at the scan and caused myself unneeded stress.

    Yes I always use my ovulation date. I have a 33 day cycle and ovulate around day 21-23 so LMP is no where near accurate.
