  • well who really knows? it is just a guess really. I know I got pregnant July 21st and told the DR that and they said my period was July 13th, and it wasn't. I know it was the 1st week of july and was probably over by the 6th, so something if off there. We didn't have sex for a few weeks before and didn't have sex again after the 21st until I already knew I was pregnant, so I KNOW that was the date of conception. Right now I am due on the 19th. I am completely effaced but only dilated to 1, so I am curious to see what happens this next week.
