Hola beautiful ladies J
I was wondering if any of you have had any experience of falling pregnant immediately after a MC and calculating your conception date or due date?
I know that I started bleeding on 15 June for about 6 days. I wsn’t checking to see if I was ovulating (due to usually seeing negative results on ov tests, they were disheartening)
Should I use the first day of that bleed as the first day of my LMP? I’ve read somewhere that some doctors add 5 days but I can’t seem to get a definitive answer anywhere.
I’m keen to work out when I could have conceived so I can work out my due date - I’m keen as I’m due to be travelling in October and don’t want to fly before 12 weeks and this could mean I need to cancel or at the very least postpone the trip. I’ve contacted my GP who can’t fit me in with the midwife for over 4 weeks, I’m currently waiting on an appointment with another midwife but this could take weeks and I was wondering (hoping!) if you lovely ladies have any ideas or way or working out a possible date of conception....
My periods although previously irregular, had seemed to settle into a 37 day cycle before I fell pregnant the first time, but my main concern is that all the conception calculators I can find ask for the first date of the LMP - can I use the first day I was bleeding, as this wasn’t actually a period.....
Any advice welcome!!
