  • Does it really matter...or is this going to become a paternity issue?

  • ok i dont understand HOW this works out. i got pregnant august 23rd and my due date is may 16th. i know someone who has a due date of may 15th but the dr told her she got pregnant august 7th. i dont understand how that's possible?

  • Well, really, unless the dr did an artificial insemination, they can't really tell you exactly when you concieved, they can only estimate. So her dr may have estimated based on her last period and when she told him she had sex, etc. and come up with that date. But, I don't really know how it all works either.

  • your due date goes by the day of your last period

  • Your OB uses your LMP on a scale, which then gives her a roundabout date of conception. That is if you got pregant AFTER your LMP and not before.
    When you have your first ultrasound, they will measure the fetus to get a more accurate gestation age and due date, which is what they will go by if there is a huge difference. This is why they do ultrasounds around your 20 weeks into the pregnancy.
    Best wishes!

  • How would you know if you were pregnant before or AFTER your period? With a due date of May 16th and unprotected sex on August 4th and August 23rd it could go either way...I dont know if i had my period or implantation bleeding.
