  • Those pregnancy calculators are weird because they go by the date of you last period. They don't take into consideration that you may have ovulated later than normal or anything like that. I would go to the doctor and have them do an ultra sound to find out for sure

  • The way that the calculators and DR's calculate your due date and how far you are is from your last period. Pregnancy are typicly 40 weeks long, but in reality your baby is about 38 weeks. Make any sense?

  • Does it really matter?Your doc is going to give you all the information when you go see him or her to confirm the pregnancy.
