  • The back pain you are feeling is from the baby lying on your hips. Hayden was like that my entire pregnancy! Your due dates are based on the baby's length. It will change again at your next sonogram.
    As far as when you got pregnant. It can really happen anytime of the month!

  • Be sure you are drinking plenty of water and getting some rest off your feet during the day.

  • there is a difference between how far along you are and how old the baby is.. its based on conception.

  • if they have changed your due date to the 6th of dec then that would put your conception date at the 15 of march so that would be after your pd and that is normal. but if your due date is the 13th of dec then that would put your conception date on march 22 and would make you 15 weeks and 4 days along. its hard on due dates cause mine has changed 3 times and im 30 weeks tomorrow and my due dates dont match up with my pd and when we did thing so it all depends but that what im getting. im a nurse and now alot about it so i hope i helped you....

  • I have had 2 ultrasounds since I have been pregnant. One dd is 1/9 and one is 1/14. They told me that ultrasound machines do have a margin of error they account for. A week isnt much anyway. I wouldnt be too concerned. As far as your braxtons hicks....I have been pregnant 2 times before and with my first they were more noticeable that my sencond pregnany. I was very uncomfortable.
