  • Most women ovulate at about the middle of their cycle. Due dates are based on you last period, which is generally in the range of 2 weeks before conception. There for, technically, you're considered 2 weeks along at the point of conception, and usually about 4 weeks by the time you miss your period.

  • It's just a method to help guesstimate.

    It's silly, I know-- the day we conceive, literally, we are called "two weeks pregnant" !

    In the end you are still due for month-ling period, on AVERAGE, and many women deliver outside that average range anyhow.

    Good luck!
