they base your due date on when your last period was. what date did you give your doc for last menstrual period?

Well, May 21 is about 9 months after August 14. Makes sense to me. Do you have any reason to believe you'd be due some other time?

Conception isn't instant: due-dates are calculated based on when conception completed, not by the date of sex which may have begun the *process* of conception.

S/he should have an approximate date that you conceived, yes.

You can make a list of questions you have to ask the doctor ... Stick it on the fridge or something, so your husband can add to it too. Take the list to the doctors w/ you and voila! No more forgotten questions
