  • HCG only shows up after you conceive.

  • No, that is not possible. You do not even MAKE the pregnancy hormone until after you are pregnant.

    However, they do date the pregnancy 2 weeks pre-conception, so that may be what you are thinking of. They date it from the first day of your last period (which you obviously did not conceive then) as opposed to your actual conception date. So the baby's gestational age is actually 2 weeks younger than what your pregnancy week is.

    Hope that helped!

  • so technically if someone were to blame their hormones for acting totally bitchy and they find out that they are pregnant at the end of sept. and they had the ultrasound that measured the due date being may 27th they couldnt be hormonal around the 10th of august if they conceived on teh 21st?

  • Well, if she was on her period around that time, it still could have been hormones, just a different kind. And the pregnancy hormonal imbalance does not kick in (for most people) the day of conception, it often takes a few weeks, even up to a month or two, to start having symptoms of pregnancy.
