  • About 3 1/2 weeks before the U/S. Whenever that was.

  • I am trying to be nice and helpful and answer your questions but you keep asking them:( Why dont you just edit your questions and change the title to include "edt" so that there arent so many from you? I try to be helpful but there are soooo many from you, multiple a day!! You said your period was on 4/9 and assuming you were on a 28 day cycle, you would have ovulated around 4/23. But I am confused, I thought you went to the doc in May, now you are saying it was in April! This is all way too confusing for me

  • If you go to you can find out the date!

  • It is hard to be exact from an ultrasound because it is a guess made on the size of the fetus. If the ultrasound said that you are pregnant, then you need to find an OB/GYN soon and get under their care. A blood test is one of the only exact ways to tell how old your fetus is because it measures the level of hormone in your blood. To answer your question, generally an ultrasound gives you a two week window of possible conception. It uses the circumference of the head, the length of the spine, the number of heart beats a minute and the size of the umbilical to estimate the age.
