  • Did you calculate by the probable conception date or by the first day of you last period? If you you put your conception date in and they were looking for your period date that would make it off quite a bit.

  • Your due date is calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period you had before you conceived.

  • You were already pregnant on the 17th. If your estimated due date from the doctor is accurate, you would have become pregnant from sex you had sometime between March 29 - April 3rd. You "conceive" on the day you ovulate, but you can have sex up to five days before that and the sperm can still potentially fertilize the egg you release.
    If you use a "due date calculator" online it usually goes by first day of last period. If you don't know it, you could put in March 20th and that should give you a due date of December 25th

  • You go by the first day of your last period. NOT the day you had sex.
