  • My understanding is that the pregnancy is dated from the start of the last period, when your body began preparing itself for a potential pregnancy. Thus, at the time of conception, you are "two weeks pregnant," and when you miss your first period, and the embryo is two weeks along, you are "4 weeks pregnant."

    Any OBs out there who want to clarify or correct this? That is just how I recall it from my two babies.

  • i have to agree with yarnjunkie. if you are 10 weeks pregnanct than the embryo is "technically" 8 weeks. good luck

  • Yep totally agree. Let me add tho........if you are not a 28 day cycler, you are not 8 weeks, but possibly 7 weeks. that happened with me, they always told me I was such and such, and I wasn't b/c I was a 30+ dayer so their dates were wrong. B/C I almost always knew when I conceived. So if you know how many day cycle you are, 28 day cycle would be be 8 weeks!
