    So, I'm still in shock I got my bfp, I've booked a midwife appt for 10th June :)

    My question is this:

    Since coming off bc in Feb I've had 2, what I considered to be, af's. I say this because they only lasted 1-2 days. The first day of my last period was 24th April and I had 4 days worth of +opk commencing 17th May.

    So with me knowing around when I ovulated....will they use this to calculate due date or last AF?

    Many thanks

    Xx

    They will prolly use your lmp until you get a dating scan. Dr's are weird about going by ov dates - don't know why.

    They will go with you LMP. Docs don't trust us with ov dates! Your true due date won't be decided till your 12 week scan anyway so they keep it pretty flexible till then anyway

    If you go from ovulation you'd be 4 weeks then, as you're classed as '2 weeks pregnant' at ovulation if you subsequently get pg, if that makes sense.....x
