Due Date

What is the first thing people ask when you tell them you're pregnant?

So, when are you due?

Such a simple question, right?

Not for us! We don't have a due date. We think that I am approximately 16 weeks along.
The first time I went to see the doctor, we thought I was 10 weeks, but then they told me I was 5 weeks. When I went to see the doctor 4 weeks ago, we thought I was 11 weeks, but when the doctor measured me he said he thought I was at least 12 weeks.

We went to see the doctor again today and there was still plenty of confusion. They had me at 20 weeks in the computer because that's where I would be if I had really been 10 weeks at my first appointment. We reminded the doctor that I should be about 16 weeks according to what he told us 4 weeks ago. Then when he measured me today, he said something about how I could be close to 20 weeks!

Are you confused yet?

I sure am. We have an ultrasound scheduled in the middle of March which is when we'll find out the sex of the baby and FINALLY have a due date!!

Until then, I still don't know what to tell people when they ask me when the baby is due. Maybe I'll just say Julaugust...


  1. I love it! It will be awesome if the babies are a few days apart like you & Lauren! By the way, if I forget, HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEXT WEEK!

  2. ok my sister in law is 14 1/2 weeks along and her belly is big! you should check her blog on mine, it's the "thats what she said" one. so your probably not 20 weeks but then everyone's different :)

    Here's their blog

  3. Heather,

    Thanks so much! I would love for mine and Lauren's babies to be close in age. I'm excited for Emily to meet the babies too!


    That's what I thought too! I thought I was too small to be 20 weeks, but he said I'm at least 16 weeks if not further. He didn't seem to think I would show much at all until I was closer to 20 weeks. My sister is showing quite a bit too, but she said she didn't show nearly this much with Ava. Who knows... Now you need to get on this baby thing. :)

  4. Wow, that must be driving you crazy not having a due date! Glad you will be sorting it out soon!
