  • Gestational age is 5.5 weeks, ovulatory age is 3.5 weeks. Most people refer to gestational age, so if someone asks (or you're volunteering the info), I'd say 5.5 weeks.

  • No They have not. I have to wait till our insurance is final we had an appointment to file for my husbands jobs insurance and I found out i was pregnant so I havent be able to go yet. just based on LMP

  • If you know your LMP then count forward from that and that will be accurate. Both my kids measured within 2 days of my calculation on their 7 weeks ultrasounds. I dont know why a medical professional would count forward from the date of conception and count that as day 1. That makes no sense to me and what makes even less sense is the fact that the due date she gave you is accurate so I dont get where she gets 4 weeks from!
