I (think!) I am 29 weeks pregnant, having calculated my due date all along using both the first date of my last period (24th May) and the first possible date of conception (had sex for first time in that cycle on 6th June).
However, my midwives are militantly sticking by the 'due date' given by my 12 week dating scan, which is the 24th of Feb.
As I have a 29 day cycle, this would effectively means I would have conceived before or during my last period - impossible!
I know previous threads on this have said 'what's a few days?' (or a week in my case) but it's really worrying me to the point of anxiety, as for DD's birth I had a horrendous induction experience that put both me and her at risk, and this time around I want to avoid induction at all costs.
I'm also considering having an elective C-Section because of birth trauma, and I'm worried that they will pick a date which is far too early, putting the baby at risk of respiratory problems.
Can anyone shed light on how/why the NHS believes the scan result over what the mother is telling them, and whether you can contest it in the case of choosing a C-Section date for example?
Many thanks for your help!
Help - Totally confused by impossible but official due date!
