    You are 4 weeks pregnant but actually conceived 2 weeks ago. Doctors date it from first day of last period. But conception roughly takes place 14 days before your next period.
    So.... in medical terms you're 2 weeks pregnant. But docs say you're 4. Hope I haven't confused you . LOL.

    As to how far alon u are it depended when u ovulated, my lmp was 23rd july, but my lp was only around 12-13 days I think so I am expecting to be further behind than my edd is...

    As for the scan I have no idea, I guess between 6-8 weeks pregnant

    P.S.. like my ticker says i'm 5 weeks 4 days.. but the baby is in fact only 3 weeks 4 days old. But it's a whole process from menstruation to conception which they take into account.
