Just wondering if anyone can shed some light on maybe when i could be due lol...
AF went from nov 24 to 30, was 34 day cycle, previous ones were 32 days, a normal cycle for me however is 28 days. I did have a M/C back in august so i understand my cycle is still all over the place.
My question is that I had brown spotting yesterday, wondered why when AF ended 12 days ago...someone suggested to me about implantation bleeding so i tested this morning on the off chance....WOW I have never seen such a dark line and so instantly
Finding it hard to work out my due date because all the calculators tell me i will be ovulating this saturday lol and that will give me sept 6th as a due date!

Congratulations. Sounds like you will get a EDD of around end of August. It will be calculated off the first day of your last AF. You can get a positive test before AF is due but that wont change the due date.

Seems you could have gotten pregnant on your last cycle an you last period wasn't actually a period. I would hazard a guess you could be close to 6 weeks pregnant. I think in your case a dating scan will be the best way to calculate an EDD as LMP Wilkie very unreliable.
If it were me, I'd be getting a Blood test, and the hCG levels could give you a very vague indication, the. Booking a scan for this week or next!
Congrats and good luck!

Congratulations! I love coming on here to see news! I'm sorry to hear about your loss and hope this pregnancy is a sticky one I'm in a similar situation as you, having very irregular periods after my 2 miscarriages. My gp took an average of days from the last time I had a regular period to the beginning of my last period and they'd work it from that until I had a dating scan. It was out by 2 days for me so not that far off, but I was told that it was just a way for an educated guess until a dating scan was done. I hope that helps a little.
Eta: My gp did this when she issued a blood test and the ob gave me a more accurate date from an u/s

I had a similar experience when pregnant with my DS2. Had a mc waited a cycle then tried again had a heavy period then the next month a weird AF. Did a test and it was positive. Went for a scan thinking we were only 6ish weeks to find we were nearly 12.
Dating scan would be the best thing to do along with some hcg bloods to ensure the levels are rising.
best of luck and hope all goes well

Thank u so much everyone for the replies and congratulations We are over the mooon
So an update...I cant get into my gp til next monday so i bought another test, the one that tells u how many weeks ago the baby was conceived...it says 2-3 weeks so im thinking that BJ BUBBLES could be right and I am actually 4-5 wks rather than having just conceived over the last week!!!!
I have joined the due in august thread as it will either be late or early august i guess lol
