  • That happened to me! Lol My first son. My period was June 19th, I conceived July 3rd and my EDD was March 26th. Then my ultrasound said he was due April 16th. I told her it might say that but he must just be small because I was definitely already pregnant. And she said.. And I quote, "Alright well lets pretend you had a period in July." OMG pretend? Really? I changed doctors, because she was a fool. Anyways, he was born Mach 16th. Which going by their due date made him a preemie. The doctor said well he might come out not breathing, or blue, and not breastfeed right away.. Yada yada.. He came out pink, crying and was breastfeeding the minute he was put to my chest. He was 6 lbs 9 oz, 20 inches long, seems to me like he was full term..

  • No doctor can tell you when you conceived. All doctors chart where you are at in your pregnancy by your last menstrual period because there is no way they can tell you the exact date you concieved. Every woman ovulates at different times. I ovulate early...hense why we accidentally became pregnant:)

  • In optimum conditions sperm can live in your body for up to 5 days. Your baby could just be growing smaller or larger then predicted. If you are wondering when you conceived because of questions of Paternity then i would strongly recommend a dna test
