  • LMP is when most doctors will calculate your due date from, however, you didn't get pregnant until after you had your period, when you ovulated, generally two weeks after the first day of your last period. Hope that helps lol

  • You probably got pregnant anywhere from 11-18 days after your LMP, which as stated above is the start of your last period. Depending on how long your cycle is (from first day of period to the first day of your next period), you take that an divide it in half. Count from when your LMP was and you can come up with close to the day, give or take about 3 days either direction, you conceived.

  • LMP= First day of your last period not the day you conceived.

  • its not technically the day u conceived, but just the first day of ur last period. this is the day doctors count as the start of pregnancy and count ur due date 40 weeks after this day since its pretty hard to exactly know the date of conception

  • sexiigirl... are you the OP? And do you mean that your pregnancy test was negative? If it was negative, then you will either start your period or retest in a few days... if that's not what you meant, then I'm not sure :oP
