Question: Conception Date
|amandab101 - Fri May 08, 2009 5:38 pm||
I'm having a little trouble figuring out my conception date. My LMP was November 23rd, giving me a conception date of around December 8th. But, my doctor gave me a EDD of September 11th which gives me a conception date of December 19th. Both ultrasounds I've had point to this date...which one is more accurate?

Ultrasound dating is the most reliable so I would go with that one when there is a discrepancy. Further ultrasounds typically done at the mid-pregnancy point may further verify this. When it comes right down to it, the baby will come on it's own schedule and rarely is this on the estimated due date.
