When do you count from?!!!


I'm confused, when do you start counting how many weeks pregnant you are, is it from the day you conceive, or the first day of your last period? My last period started on the 26th Oct, but I think from Fertility Friend I conceived on 8th Oct. Cow and Gate website says I'm due on 2nd Aug, basing it on the last period. Can someone help me know if I'm 4 or 6 weeks?!!!!!

You count it from the date of your last period. That means you are 5 weeks and 6 days today

you count from your lmp but the length of your cycle has a lot to do with it. I use this website and seemed to backup what the mw thought

We have told my mum and OH's mum, my boss and his also know but only because we had a scare a week ago and had to go to the hospital.
