Haha, hello again! I'm supposed to be 29th Feb...but too early for dating scan. I feel like I'd prefer to be in March DIG as I am likely to go over given family history and being our first to term pregnancy.

2nd March assuming regular 28 days cycle.  I have spent so much time either on the pill, pregnant, BF or with implanon in over the last few years that I actually have NO idea what a regular cycle length is for me.  So dating scan should give me a better idea :D

Anyone else slightly concerned about being due early March 2016...which is a leap year and very close to Feb 29th....???

I would be stoked if I had bub on Feb 29...I am due as maid of honour on March 5th...at least I'd possibly be able to make the ceremony lol. Otherwise he or she must stay put until march 6th or later. I am technically due the 29th Feb but am waiting on a dating scan & this is my first so we're likely to go 'over'. I don't hold too much belief in due dates though, kind of like guessing when a cake will be cooked in 10 different types of ovens hehe!

Oooooo MrsJ that's hardcore!!!  Have you got a back up plan for the wedding or is it too early to tell the bride to be??

She is a close friend and I said to her when she asked me and gave me the wedding date that we were trying and I'd possibly be due around then if all went to plan. If we hadn't lost our first pregnancy I would have had plenty of time. However I wouldn't change this for the world.

She is aware I may not be there on the day 1 and 1/2 hrs from a hospital too so we will have to see where I'm at. I'd really love to at least make the ceremony though.

Im a bridesmaid in another wedding in November so I'll be showing for that but haven't told the bride yet...this one is family but she's a fruit loop so I wouldn't be surprised if I get the flick from that one lol. I'm not too fussed about that one though!

Hehehe I'm glad you have such an understanding friend MrsJ and you never know, these things often have a way of working themselves out!!

I'm a bit sad coz yesterday I was at a triathlon expo with my 'gang' and they are all talking about upcoming events, a team event in Dec that we are considering that I *might* be able to still compete in (I'd be the 120km cycle leg) and the highlight of our year, Husky tri festival in Feb that I'm definitely not going to be a starter in - I also wouldn't change this for anything but I'm really struggling with seeing everyone go onwards and upwards and keep improving, competing etc while I'm already spinning my wheels a bit through sheer exhaustion :/

Hi There,

Thought I might add myself to this thread! My name is Angela, I'm 30 and live in Darwin, NT. My due date is March 2nd although I think I may be later than that, I think I ovulated late in my cycle and that is how this little one came to be! We already have two children, a daughter who is almost 5 and a 15 month old son. We hadn't decided if we were having a 3rd child or not yet, but this surprise has made the decision for us! So this will be our lucky last baby.

There is 3.5 years between the first 2, so the prospect of only having a 2 year gap is scary! Lol. Very excited and very nervous all at once.

Looking forward to joining everyone on this journey :D

EB due date calculator has me on March 8. I've had one kid 6 days early, one 6 days late and one 2 days late! So who knows, lol!! But I would bet on being close to my due date, the last two were the late ones.
