    hi everyone,

    a lot you have tickers and some of them are like 3/4 weeks, how do you know how far on you are that early? do you just know from the dates you DTD?
    i think i'm around four weeks. with my DD I had a scan at 9 weeks and that's when i found out how far on i was!

    xx

    Lots of people TTC track their basal body temperature so know when they ovulated. You then work out how pregnant you are by taking the date you ovulated, and adding two weeks on. So if you ovulated 14 days ago and got a BFP, you would be four weeks pregnant.

    By my LMP I would be 11+ weeks (no way) but by my ovulation date I am 7+ weeks.
