Go from the date of your last menstral cycle... and actually an ultrasound will be able to tell you more or less when you're due date will be.

Although they're not exactly 100% accurate my due date I was guesstimated a week later than it really was because I ended up with H1N1 and it slowed down the babies developement. Turns out he was 6 weeks premie anyways, not alot of women actually give birth on their due date.

What method did they use when you went to the doctor? Because if they are just going off of your menstrual cycle, it should be the same as the due date websites are giving you.

I feel like when I had my ultrasound it was a decent amount off from the due date calculated for me. I just used that one because its more accurate, and my doctor never said there was a problem.

You are considered full term anywhere from 38-42 weeks, so your actual due date doesn't mean much anyway.

When reality is a prison, your mind can set you free.

Uh they had this little wheel thing that they used and it was like starting on my last menstrual cycle and it showed like the date i was going to be 24 weeks and the date i was going to be to full term and she used the wheel to figure out how far along i was. But when i count it i count it from my first date of my last period to 40 weeks from then and i come up with being due feb 1st. See what really confuses me is that my first day of my last period is on a tuesday and she said every thursday i would go up a week, i dont get that? But it was a rn at hope resource center so she isnt an obgyn so maybe she got confused?

Wait until your first ultrasound. That will give you a more accurate date.
