okay so by my calculations (thanks to pl) if DOC is 10/26/2004, then her due date would be 8/1/05. Todays date on island is 12/25-26/04 (isn't it?) so she is well into her 1st trimester. using 10/26/04 as the DOC her 3rd trimester would start on 4/29/05. so they get off the island somewhere between now and then. with a doc of 10/26/04 it would be really hard to fool an ultrasound, or even a doctor with saying you got pg before the crash.

If DOC is 10/26/04, assuming she ovulated on day 14 of her cycle so that her LMP started 10/12/04, her due date would be 7/19/05. But still, again assuming a 28 day cycle and ovulation on day 14, the next earlier DOC would be 9/28/04. Still after the crash. So, the DOC would have to be on her PREVIOUS cycle, roughly at the beginning of September, giving a due date the first day of May and now we're 2.5 months off schedule -- something a doctor seriously would notice.

However, don't we have some indication that time on the island moves more slowly than the outside world? So if her first trimester is roughly 3 months... and that equates to 5 or 6 months on the outside (I'm making that up)... aren't we even further skewed? She gets rescued mid-2nd trimester (say 4.5 mos), but that's really 9 months on the outside that she's been gone, then how do they explain the paternity of the baby?

Maybe that's part of the "controversy" and has to do with Hurley's reaction? Maybe under that circumstance, Hurley stepped up and said he was the baby's father. Eek!
