Stupid Question but just wondering

Ok I did have a period in april but it only lasted a day and it was very light and kinda dark. I found out I was pregnant April 29. My last period before that was march 12th. and it was normal. My drs say I am 36 weeks by the ultrasound. Are they right or could I be further. Like I said probaby a stupid ? but I just wanted to know what yall thought.

  • The ultrasounds are just a guess, but you are more than likely within a week or so of the date they are telling you.

  • you're probably around 36 weeks like the doc says.

  • usually right because of ultra sound measurements and all

  • But by the due date it says that I ovulated on the april 29th - may 2nd. so how could i have found out i was pregnant the day ovulated

  • It sounds as though you could be farther along, but the measurements are what probably indicate what is going on. I was in a similar situation. According to my calendar, I was 38 weeks, but according to the doctor, I was 36 weeks. The baby came and sure enough was closer in size and development to a 34 week baby than a 38 week baby. So even though your record indicates otherwise, the baby is likely about the development that the doctor says.
