  • By looking closely at your cycle. If you chart it, you will know. If you didn't chart, count back two weeks from when you expected your period, that's when you likely concieved (not two weeks from the first day, like doctors count). If you have a very irregular cycle it is best to date your pregnancy either with charting or with an early (before 12 weeks) ultrasound.

  • i was told the baby can take up to 2 weeks to actually "settle" into your uterus, so they can only tell you how old the baby is.

  • Anon :13, that's true, but the baby will still have been growing that whole time. It doesn't stay an egg until it implants. So an ultrasound done before 12 weeks is fairly accurate at predicting a due date (or conception date)

  • As the first poster said, we hardly have sex, so there was only a few days it could have possibley happened for me... Also though, there was one night, I remember thinking, *circumstances* were perfect for conception to happen, and wouldn't ya know,it was the first time we tried, and i got pregnant.

  • I think that two to three weeks after I conceived, I had strong intestinal pain..this was confirmed by a blood test. I think some people use the charting family planning method

  • 2 weeks after the first day of your last period is typically when you're most fertile. So if you know what day that was, go 2 weeks from there and you'll be awfully close.
