    Hi!

    Just got my positive test at 13 dpo, after my wedding yesterday! :happydance: Just hoping it sticks now, luckily I've got a week-long honeymoon in Cornwall coming up for relaxing.

    I've tried to work out my due date but I'm confused, can anyone help?

    The first day of my last period was 8th May, I ovulated on 22nd May, and my next period is due tomorrow. Which of these is most relevant?!

    Thanks ladies :help:

    Take the date of your last period, and count forward 40 weeks. That will be your due date.

    Otherwise there are many sites online that will work it out for you :D

    I go from my date of OV- my cycles are irregular and I ended up ovulating almost a month after my LMP. If I went with my LMP my due date would be considerably messed up.

    Yes, if you know you're ovulation date use that (its just that most people don't!) and add on two weeks.
    Congrats!
