  • Congrats. Not sure hun.. you'll just have to wait and be surpised at the Dr's ! :) they useually will do a gestational age ultrasound for people who don't know exactally how far along. So they can determine a Due date, GL

  • Can't help you too much, but from what i understand, if you had the negative, that means you weren't far enough for there to be HCG hormone whatever in your system, so at the time you got the postive probably around 3-5 weeks..... but that's about all I can figure. You'll just have to wait for the doc to tell you.

  • Most likely they will give you an ultrasound...Some docs can give you a pelvic exam and find out though. I didn't know how far along I was either with my first. When I got the pelvic, she said I was about 8-9 weeks then a few weeks later I had an ultrasound and found out I was 12 weeks along. So hope you find out soon!

  • Usually they go by the FIRST day of your LAST actual PERIOD. and if they cant determine it then theyll ultrasound. Aside from blood work b/c the HCG levels indicate fetal age.
