  • They go by the time you menstruation is. Because no one knows when you conceived so it is easier for Dr to go by when your last period is. I have always know that. Learned that in health class in 6th grade.

  • I must've been asleep in health class. No actually they never really talked about pregnancy they just talked about sex and std's. Maybe if they talked about pregnancy as well 16 year olds wouldn't be knocked up lol

  • yep that's right, it is considered from the first day pf your last period... and there is a reason. Even while your body is getting rid of the old lining of your uterus, the new egg is starting to grow in the ovary. If you are pegnant and go for an ultrasound in the first trimester they might say your dates are wrong by a week or so. What you need to remember is... IT DOESN"T MATTER. You can go into labour anytime from 37 wks to 42 wks and be considered full term. As long as the baby is growing at a good rate, and you are well, the actual date is just an "average" date
