    Hi girls, I was going from the date according to my OV as I am sure that's what I OV'ed which makes my EDD 28th December, if we go from my last AF (25th March with a 27 day cycle) then it's 30th December, but my doc has just give me a EDD of 31st December.

    Which would you go with? (it's for my ticker)

    I voted 28th.
    To be honest though it doesn't really matter.

    I had a m/c in early Jan, so no period to go from, but we only had sex once on the 1st February. That would make my EDD 25th October at the earliest, but at the last scan they brought me forward to 20th October even though I told them it was impossible.

    I am going by their dates, but in my mind I always deduct 5 days to when I know I really am.

    In the end, unless you're overdue, the baby will come when it decides, not what your due dates stipulate. So really, a few days either way won't matter...

    When I was pregnant with my son I went for my 12 week scan and they told me I was only 10 weeks. It was a long time ago and I was very young so I didn't think to question it and changed my due date to the one they said....... he then came along two weeks early, bang on time with my own dates!!

    Go with your ov date hon x

    Id say go for your OV date, but like 80% chance it will change at scan, even if its only a day or less.
    I was given date by my MW last time of 29th Dec. My scan gave me date of 27th. I gave birth 31st. (Glady give birth on 31st, lovely day :D)

    Hey hun. I knew exactly what day I conceived so was determined to go by my date rather than the doctors (which was earlier by three days). My scans have confirmed that my date is more accurate but as it is only three days out from their EDD they haven't changed it. To be honest it was easier for me in the end to just go with their date, as this is the date they'll be going by when I approach 40 weeks, especially if they end up inducing me. Either way hun as the others have said it really won't matter in the end as the only one deciding on the date your LO will arrive is LO!! Just choose the date you feel happiest with xx
