A 24-year-old female asked:

If my last period was december 5 2016 and my estimated due date is september 29th 2016 does that mean i ovulated later than normal??

Not necessarily: EDC means Estimated Date of Confinement and the emphasis is on the word "estimated" until more accurate information is available later in pregnancy form additional testing. Ovulation dates are very hard to guess "after the fact".
