last 5 visits to US

While we are still waiting for our NOA2 (August filer) and to prepare for K1 visa interview I looked through the copy of my old DS160 that I had filled for C1/D visa when I used to work as a cabin crew. 

So it asks to show last 5 visits to US. The thing is that I remember only  my 2 last flights to US back in 2016 that were work flights, and I don't remember exactly to which cities I flew and when before that. 

Because I used to have US flights almost each month. But now I don't work for that airline anymore and I don't have access to my old schedule to check. Moreover I changed my passport after 

so I don't have any stamps left from entering US. Couldn't even find any pics that could have been taken during that time. So last flight were in October 2016 and others I have evidence of were in March of 2016. So I dont remember any flights from period from March to October, but I know I had at least 5 flights. What can I do in this situation? Can I just put 2 last flights and don't mention the ones before? I'm not sure company is still keeping my data to ask them to help me with that.

I visited the US once and it was 30 years ago as a high school exchange student. As it may be predicted, I don't have any information about that visit, no exact dates, no immigration form, not even my passport. I only have a general idea of how long the visit was and two official dated photos which we filed along with the petition and explained everything I could remember by that moment. It is my intention to provide as much information in DS-160 as I can reasonably remember and maybe I will email the embassy for their advice (if they  care to provide it). If not, we have given plenty of information for background checks which seem to have been passed successfully now that we are approved. In my opinion, if they ask for 5 visits, try to be as detailed as you reasonably can but don't leave it 2 instead of 5.
