We did thanks, went our for dinner last night. I think my eyes were bigger than my belly as I'm still feeling full now! Was yummy though. Still struggling with being limited to the foods I can eat on very delicious looking menus! Might have to curb the dining out!

Glad you had a lovely day! Your escalator comment made me chuckle LOL

Happy anniversaries to Shh and Smawfl!!

And minimoocow, I'm sure your BFP is coming. You can count on no AF today with that temp, and the dip is textbook. What tests are you using??

Also, I have a question for those with EDDs based on ovulation. My doctor asked what day I ovulated and apparently is now basing my EDD on that, but I can't see how it's right. He used a circular chart made of paper to figure it out, so I suspect it doesn't take the extra leap year day into account, but even so it seems a day late to me. The due date should be the same day of the week as ovulation, right? My LMP started on a Tuesday (and my tickers are based on that), ovulated 16 days later on a Thursday, and now my EDD is on a Saturday. At the scan I actually measured exactly consistent with the Thursday due date so I feel like that's the "real" one. Not that it really matters just confused, and annoyed that I essentially have to wait an extra week for appointments since I can't schedule them over the weekend and have to wait at least until the Monday 6 days after my LMP-based day!

Sorry that was so long and confusing!

What is your LMP date? And OV date? What EDD dates have you got?

I think all the online calculators take into consideration the leap year extra day.

Hmm, I'm not sure, but personally, I wouldn't mind as long as their date was later than your date, i.e. they won't make you have an induction earlier than 'your' date iykwim. I'm fairly confident that if I'd have given DD another day I would have gone into labour myself, so this time I'm going to be much firmer about what I think my date is - going by ovulation date (which would be 14 days before that for their little wheel thing), which like you say, would put all your 'weekly' dates on the same day of the week as your ovulation day. I may be wrong though!!

Thanks guys. Shh, I'm impatient to reach all the milestones but you're right that it's better this way in terms of induction. Smawfl, my LMP was Dec 6 and ov was the 22nd. My EDD is now Sept 15. FF gave me the 13th based on my chart and that's what I'm thinking it should be...I also measured consistent with the 13th (7+6 on Wednesday). My tickers are based on the LMP date which I'm pretty sure is the 11th.

You ladies might enjoy this: I came across it yesterday evening and just couldn't tear myself away. http://myobsaidwhat.com

Minimoocow, my first thought as I signed on this morning was "wonder if she got it yet???" Well?

Smawfl, thanks for thinking about it. It should be the 13th, right? Well, it doesn't really matter!
