How many weeks and days pregnant am I?


Hi ladies. I can't decide whether to consider myself 5 wks and 3 days (from when i think i conceived) or just try to get it in my head that the midwife will say i'm further because of when my LMP started. What do you think? I don't think i ovulated until 3 weeks after LMP as opposed to 2 but it's annoying me that i can't work out my EDD and decide for definate how far i am. I think the docs/midwife will prob just say its from my LMP anyway, what do you think? x x

Midwives do go by you LMP, but it may change when you have a dating scan.

Hi, I am roughly the same point as you. My LMP started 21 october but i don't think i ovulated til 3 weeks later, on the 10th november. Then only got BFP last monday, on the 24th nov. I thought myself to be 5 weeks and 6 days but when I had a scan the other day (long story) they said that I may not be as far along as I thought as they could see a sac but nothing else.
It is all very confusing as someone told me you work it out by the no of weeks since you ovulated and add 2 weeks on to it. Which would put me at 5 weeks today.
Can anyone shed any light on this?

I found this website that helps and it takes into account that not everyones cycle is 28days, mine is 34 days. It puts me at 4 weeks and 6 days and I thought I was 5 weeks and 6 days probably due to my cycle being 6 days longer than average.

Hope this helps you xx

It sounds like you have both have had a 35 day cycle which is what i had when i concieved this 1.

We ovulate on average 14 days before the nxt is due. So stick with the dates you have, but do expect to be put back from anything from 7 to 12days.

My LMP came on the 07/07/08 i got my on the 12/08/08. I ovulated on the 28/29 July.

HTH.

I always use an online pregnancy due date calculator. They are usually right on! I guess if you do not know 100% a scan will be in order. But, the pregnancy test looks like a very early pregnancy if you compare the two lines.

Go by ur LMP.. I no for sure I didnt Ov until 3 weeks after my LMP but its doesnt really make alota difference... They will see when you have your 12 weeks scan if your due date is correct. Unless you have reaaaaaaaaallly long cycles and OV'd alot longer after your LMP then thats what you should go by. x x
