Ovulation Calendar And Due Date

Laura asks…

What are my chances of being pregnant?

The first day of my last period was 9/22/07. According to the ovulation calendar my next period is due 10/18/07 and my ovulation window opened 10/1 and should close 10/10. My cm was dry until I had watery cm 10/4 and 10/5. Those two days were also the two days my husband and I had unprotected sex. Did we have sex in time to get pregnant or should we keep trying until the 10th? Could I take a home pregnancy test 10/19/07 and it be accurate?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I would say a test on 10/19 would be accurate. They say you can test as soon as you have a missed period, but then again, with our daughter, I tested the day I was supposed to start my period, it was negative…I waited a few more days and tested again and it was positive. My cycle is the exact same dates as yours so I’m hoping we are preggo this month as well. We ‘baby danced’ every other day starting on the 1st and when I was between days 14 and 15 we did it both of those days. We will probably be doing it again tonight just to make sure we have the best chance possible. Good luck to you!

Mary asks…

How do they determine the date of delivery?

I happened to be observed by two OBs in two different countries. Though I gave the same info to both like the date of my last period, they determined different delivery dates (1 week difference). I just wonder how do they figure out and if the system is different in different countries?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

No, it isn’t different in different countries; one of them made a mistake. If you know the exact date of ovulation, you add 38 weeks. Otherwise, the *estimated* due date is the first day of your last period (LMP) plus 40 weeks.

You can figure out which is correct yourself by counting, or by using this shortcut. 9 calendar months is almost exactly 39 weeks. Go forward 9 months from either the date of ovulation or LMP, then go back one week (if you used ovulation) or forward one week (for LMP). Move to the nearest date that is the same day of the week as ovulation/LMP to make it precisely 38/40 weeks.

Mandy asks…

Would there be a possibility of pregnancy?

I’ve been getting all different dates online for ovulation. The first day of my last period was 8/22/08. We had unprotected sex all weekend, last time being this morning. Is there a possibility of the sperm being able to live long enough to fertilize the egg? I just checked on an ovulation calendar and it said my most fertile day would be 9/4 but I’ve also gotten dates like 9/8 last week.

Can someone help me figure this out?
We are trying to conceive.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

If you have a normal 28 day cycle, figure out when your next period is due and count back roughly 12 to 16 days. Usually ovulation starts on the 14th day and you are most fertile 2 to 3 days before ovulation. So, say the date of your next period is 9/19/2008 you would count 12 to 16 days back from that date which would be from 9/3-9/7 that’s the time period in which you are ovulating, and the 2 to 3 days before that you are most fertile. An egg can survive up to 24 hours sperm released into the vagina can live in the mucus of the cervix and able to fertilize an egg 3 to 5 days.



Nancy asks…

My partner and I are try to conceive. My period cycle is always somewhere between 30-33 days apart?

I did an ovulation test on 19th day of cycle and showed up positive. Does that mean I was due to ovulate shortly or have already ovulated?? We had intercourse on 16th day of cycle. I only randomly used an ovulation kit on 19th to see what it would say and was surprised with the result so really not sure what it means and when I would expect to ovulate? Still 14th day if cycle of later?

Betty asks…

Did anybody else have thier last period on March 25th?

I would like to be in contact with any women who had their last period on March 25 who are ttc so I can compare symptoms.

If my last period was March 25th, and I conceived (*fingers crossed*), would my due date be Christmas?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

My last one was on March 25 also! I’ve been TTC and hopefully it was successful! I think it would be around Christmas sometime because when I was doing my ovulation calendar that’s about when it said I would be due if I were to conceive! Baby dust to you and me and everyone else TTC! Good Luck!
