Ok, my update. Have you ever heard the adage "doctors make the worst patients?" well, it's true.
I had my first OB visit today, and dutifully reported my LMP as 3/26/13. Which is true, and this would make me 6&2 today. Well, we fired up the TVUS and lo and behold the tadpole I was expecting did not materialize. Instead I saw an unmistakeable early fetus. (Just one of them, thankfully!! so the twin names will not come into play). Anyway, I'm now dated 10 weeks with an EDD of 12/7/13.
I asked how this could be and the OB replied that many women ovulate and menstruate the first month in pregnancy. I kind of understand this, since the B-HCG levels wouldn't be that high to negatively feed back into the gonadotropin axis, but still find it amazing that the conceptus can survive a menstrual period.
It's so strange to fast-forward the clock 3.5 wks like this. I have to schedule my quad screen soon and find out the gender in 6 weeks! So fast!XY: Antoine Raphael (3.1.2012)
XX: Cassia Viviane Noor (11.30.2013)

Wow! Congrats Blade! Already almost out of the first trimester without even knowing it. That's the way to go. I am way too paranoid during the first trimester ;-)Wife to Jordan.

Sarah, yay for your (+)OPK. (:
Wow Blade, that's amazing. The purpose of period is to expel the uterine lining, and yet, yours hung in there. It sounds like the beginning of a very strong willed little person.
And now for some pet love. We don't have a dog. We've always said that if we are to put the time and energy into raising a puppy, we might as well just have a baby. So we have a cat, and I present to you Momo, formally known as Moses Bernard.
