  • It is just a label, sweetie. If you really want to know wait until the pregnancy is over and then do the math? Personally I don't count the 2 weeks between LMP and conception.  And two of my pregnancies went past what the rest of you call 41 weeks, but is really only 39 weeks from conception.  13 weeks per. so 26 weeks after conception plus the two stupid weeks. So 28.  But if you don't like that math, you just do it however you want. It doesn't matter in the slightest.  Babies come when they come.
