Hi all i had been on the ttc thread as (broodmom) we had been ttc for over a year with 2 mc & 2 dds.I am "overweight" (always have been!)so not "ideal" pregnancy material well according to nhs!!! hmm

I had been charting my cycle every month and my cycles went like 33,36,40,33,35,39,34,36 days and lasted 3 sometimes 5 days long and always very very light(from what i charted)

I am now 23 weeks pregnant my last Af was 22nd june (it was really just streaky mucus sorry tmi) blush but according to the dr and baby scan i got pg on 29th July! which meant i got pregnant on day 38 of my cycle!! i have had 3 scans now and all confirm the baby is the correct size for these dates i cant get my head around it as it does not tie with any fertile signs i had or anything!! i have a diary of cervical signs etc i had kept and when i get the time i will post it on for others to read.

I just wanted to share this, i read every possible bit of info i could when ttc and its interesting to me how late i seem to have concieved, makes me wonder how long the cycle was going to be!

My due date is 21st April according to scan dates, if i went by lmp it would be 29th March so we will see when the baby is born!!!!!!!!!

thanks for this - so easy to get carried away with charting etc so good to have a reminder that sometimes it happens when you least expect it. Hope your pregnancy continues smoothly.

Also I am overweight - a generous size 20, so good to know other overweight women do conceive.

Yellowflowers i was obsessed with charting honest! and the cycle i got pg i was about to give up!! Im a 20 on top (mahoosive boobs blush )and 18 on bottom, so it does happen xxxx

Sometimes there can be more than one ovulation in a cycle-- especially with "older" gals, as in 30 and up. It never hurts to keep trying!

Was the cycle you got pregnant in really long then? Ie you conceived on day 38 and your period was 2 weeks 'late'? Or did you have what you thought was a period in between day 38 and when you got the positive?
