Thanks ladies, as I live in Australia we go by day, month year with our dates. My doctor ended up giving me 3 due dates which I'm not impressed by but seeing as I know my ov date which was the 1/08/14( not the 1/07/2014) I have a better idea of when bubs is due. I also tried the babymed.com calculater and came out with the 23/04/2015, so thank you lindsayannek for that.
Thanks again for all ur help :-)

Agree she was reading the dates wrong. Depends what country your from wheather it's written as day month year or month day year.
I agree but another reason it's important is that if the think your further along due to your LMP they may freak you out and tell you it's a miscarrage when in fact it may just be too early to see anything specially if based on your ovulation date it's out by a week or two. They will base it on your LMP so make sure your clear about your cycles and ovulation date. Gl

I think lindsayannek misunderstood your dates, there's no way March could be your due date if you conceived in January...

Doctors will use the last day of your first day of your last menstrual period as a general rule. But if you know your exact ovulation date due to OPKs and temping, that will be the most accurate. Your doctor will prob give you a due date based off of your LMP. When I told my doctor (actually his nurse) that I knew my exact O date, she brushed it off and told me they use the LMP no matter what. I thought it was pretty ignorant. Doctors don't expect that most pregnant women know that information. In your case, you'll have to prove them wrong by the dating/measurement scan. It's important that they do a dating scan at a proper time because if they have your due date that far off(about two weeks), they may think you are farther along than you really are at the end and press you for an induction, among other issues during your pregnancy. Like cosmoholic said, a dating scan in the case will be the best bet for your doctors to understand your due date. GL n congrats!

Try babymed.com - you can calculate due date based off ovulation with their calculator. I put in you date (July 1 2014?) and it comes up with March 23, 2015 as due date.

If you have an irregular cycle, I think the best way to date your pregnancy is to request a dating ultrasound from your OB/GP/Midwife. Due dates are generally calculated from the first day of your last period - but if you ovulated 26 days after that might throw off dates.
