  • Thanks Guys.. I Dont Know How To Use The Due Date Calculator Though.. I Just Really Want To Know How Many Weeks I Am, Or At Least Which Time It Was That This Baby Was Concived At Least.. Is That To Soon To Know If I Went To The Doctor?

  • When I went to my first ob appt he determined my estimated due date starting from the first day of my last menstrual based on your dates, I would say you would be 5 weeks by looking at the calendar..althought technically you are probably 4 or so since ovulation is around 2 wks after you start your period and then it takes a few days for implantation to take place. That is usually why they say you are full term by 36-38 wks bc you can not really be certain when implantation took place. Hope this helps.

  • my Dr went by my last period and then after he did the u/s he gave me the new due date when was right cuz my periods are only 18days from the end of one to the next and when i got preg with both of my kids i was early early preg and still had a period cuz it hadn't implanted yet or whatever. and when the Dr went by my period dates it was always off by a week.
    Cuz with my first i had surgery July 26 found out i was preg August 11th but what was funny was that same week of surgery i had an yearly with my OB . so with my 2nd i already knew when i found out i was preg that it was a week ahead. and it was true i tried to tell my hubby that and i told him i'd prove it and i said when i go to my first appt. i will be 6wks and sure enough i was.
