So confused...

So I KNOW for a fact that the first day of my last period was Feb. 8th, my periods are always a week long and I ended on Valentines Day. So that would put me at 12 weeks pregnant. Well at my ultrasound the measurments of baby showed I was 10 weeks and 6 days pregnant!

Now what the hell happened there? Lol. Maybe baby is measuring small? Or I got pregnant after my period? How does that happen? So confused...

I went and did a conception date calculator and it said my LMP was Feb. 18th. Not possible lol.

You may have O'd late. Or your baby may just be measuring small.

What happened was you didn't ovulate according to a calendar.

it is just an estimate

I was sent for an ultrasound at 36 weeks because I was measuring "too small?, but they estimated ds at 8lbs 8 oz at that time

He was born at 42 weeks weighing 7lbs 9 oz

Could be possible. I didn't have a period for about 5 months, no idea why, then all the sudden in Feb. I finally got a period and then BAM got pregnant so maybe I did ovulate late.

How do you get pregnant after your period? Is that a joke? Ovulation occurs and then a period occurs due to NOT being pregnant.
Clearly you had your period, ovulated, got pregnant and voila.

All my babies have always measured right where they should according to my LMP so this one is making me confused because it's never happened before. Guess I wait until my next OB appointment and see what they say. It's not possible for me to get pregnant way after I had my period...so maybe the baby is just a small baby.

Are you on crack?
Umm, yes it IS possible to get pregnant after your period.
I can't believe you've had kids and don't understand how conception occurs!!!

LMP has nothing to do with conception. Ovulation does.
