my last pregnancy post for today I swear!!

Figuring out a due date is proving to be complicated. When I see the Dr I need to say when my last period was. The only one I have had since having my 6 month old was April 26th -may 1st.

When May 26 came and I didn't get a period I started testing. I took 4 or 5 tests and today I took one as the last test before chalking it up to a breastfeeding thing. And it was positive. I got the clear blue predictor thing and it says I'm 4-5 weeks pregnant but when I go to a due date calculator it wants to know the date of my last period. So what do I do?

I'm confused!

Have your doctor figure it. Just let them know about being unsure. :) I have irregular periods. So I've had to get dated with ultra sound.

You put in the date of your last period. Sometimes it takes a while for the hormones to show up on a pregnancy test. 

My DS was only 3 months old when I got pg with my DD! We planned it though. 

Did you plan them so close together?

My doctor has to schedule a sonogram to be able to tell how far I am. My last period was back in January, I'm irregular so it's hard for me to tell. Got a negative test on May 17th and 3 positives on June 5th and 6th lol

I'd just tell them that your cycle isn't regular. They can do an ultrasound to measure the baby to predict a due date.

They will make me come in and do a pee test and probably blood work tomorrow. Then it will be a month before they will see me again and do a sono. I don't wanna wait that long!

Just tell them you don't know. They'll do an ultrasound to get a date. They had to do that with this pregnancy.

Only an ultrasound can tell you for sure how far along you are.
