Hi all. Ive been so fortunate to get my BFP yesterday on my OTD! Its not quite sunk in yet at all! Im a very visual person and so I have downloaded an app to learn more about whats happening to my lil one on board. However it works out which week im on by the first date of my last period which would put me at 5 weeks andabut due date 22 nov but surely im not that far gone due to the ivf. I had a 5dt on 14th March. Can anyone help me figure it all out please? Or am I confusing myself?

Thanks in advance.

I hope every ones being kind to themselves today xxx

Congratulations on your BFP!! I had a 5dt on 13th and am 4+6.. I used the attached to calculate as it works it out slightly different with IVF.. Best wishes for a happy & healthy pregnancy xx

Thank you for this link, very helpful! I've also been confused as to what date to put . I think I had worked it out correctly but this link verifies my calculations. Its confusing as you pretty much need to add 2 weeks on to how far you really are xx

When I got my BFP I downloaded an app because I wanted to see and read about what could be going on in there too!

I had my EC on the 1st of March and my app says that I’d be due on 21st Nov, so I’m 6 weeks today. As it happens my IVF cycle was exactly the same as what my natural cycle would have been (EC on what would have been ovulation day) so I’ve input the first day of my period to work due date out that way, but if you google ‘ivf due date calculator’ that will help you work out a due date by using the date you had egg collection. This gave the same date as the other calculator did for me, but it may make a difference for you.

Hope the next few weeks go by quickly and smoothly for you!! Xx

Type in “ivf due date calculator” onto google. This will give you a more accurate prediction. Congratulations on your bfp xx

Congrats on the BFP!! 😁


I was confused by this too and was told by the clinic to use the collection date. Still doesn’t make sense but I’ll go with it. My little bubs is 4wks+1. 😁

Massive congrats on your BFP hun - glad you have some answers on here re- due date 👍 I’m using an app too - called ‘Pregnancy+‘ what one are you using? Any good? X

Its called pregnancy. Its an android app. Its a green background with two lil white baby feet. It appears to be quite good so far. It gives you measurements and whats happening with the lil peanut also weight tracker, kegel exercises, what to eat etc.x
