I had my last period on Nov 6th and about couple days before getting my period I stopped taking the pill, I guess my question is how far can I be pregnant? Yesterday I made one of those home test and it came out positive, how can I tell how far I am? Are they start working around it by my last period?
I'm calling tomorrow to my OB/GYN to check out my baby. Does somebody knows how it would be done? PLEASE!!!

  • They start counting on the first day of your last period. So by the time you actually get pregnant, according to the doctor's calculator you are actually 2 weeks pregnant. It's confusing, but that's the way they do it.

  • With you being so early in the pregnancy, they can do a vaginal u/s to determine how far along you are. With your dates possibly being screwy because of the birth control, that would be the best way to figure out when you are due.
