I went to the doctors today and my first ultrasound said i am 6 and a half weeks pregnant (as of july7th) but how accurate are these dates, any chance it can be a few days off?

im very curious because that means i conceived around the 22nd of may buttttt i was having protected intercourse up until the 27th from the 27th on is when its a lot more likely i could have gotten pregnant.. its it possible the ultrasound date of my pregnancy is a little off?

i feel awful saying this but the few days difference is crutial (ex boyfriend vs. new boyfriend)

  • generally they are fairly accurate. Not perfect by any means but pretty darn close.

  • the 22nd and the 27th
    that is only 5 days difference

    nothing is going to let you know which one
    except a DNA test

    5 days!!! - just too close to call for ANY scan

  • once you start to show
    old and new boyfriend both are going to notice
    both are going to think that could be their baby
    both run for the hills

    you are in a pickle
    be honest with both
    and take some DNA tests after baby born

  • If you are going to have sex with every guy who ever kisses you on the neck then you need to be on BC... It is obviously more likely that you got knocked up during the unprotected sex. duh.

  • I was 2 weeks early with my first and 2 weeks late with my 2nd.
    Sounds like a DNA test is the only way to find out for sure.

  • @anonymous I'm sorry I thought this forum was for mature mothers, not trash talking sarcastic adolescents. hopefulyy you just read these posts in your free time and are not a mother.

  • 6.5 weeks back, according to my calendar, puts conception at 5/29. When was your last period and were you somewhat regular?

    Something you really need to think about: New boyfriend may just ditch you if you're in that new a relationship and got pregnant that fast.

  • @gdiamante really? I keep doing the math and getting the 22nd maybe im just out of it and cant count right now with the new news.. I like the 29th better, that will make things a lot easier.

  • Where do you live? OB's sure as heck don't keep office hours on Sunday around here.

  • Which boyfriend do you want to be the father?
    and which one is the scan showing it is?
