Hi, I got Pregnant between Dec. 19 and Dec 21. I don't understand how I determine how far along I am. Do I count from my LMP (which was Dec. 2nd, with a 35 day cycle) or do I go by my estimated date of conception? I'm so confused, am I 5wks pregnant or 3 weeks pregnant or what?

How are you all estimating how far along you are? From your last period or the day you concieved?....

Well, to determine your due date they usually count from the first day of your last period and that accounts for a 40 week pregnancy. That's how it's done in US and Canada. Some countries count for a 38 week pregnancy and that's counted as 2 weeks after your LMP. If you are checking your baby's development on this site you should go with the 40 week so you are 5weeks & 5 days pregnant.

I posted to you earlier Do you remember the first day of your last period. Let me know I can tell ya ur due date by a wheel I have like the doctors.

Pregnancy is counting from the day of conception. It is a practice to calculate the day when you will deliver your baby 40 weeks after first day of your last cycle, but never, NEVER, believe in that! My cycle was always 28 days and by their account I should get pregnant 2 weeks after first day of pregnancy, but I didn't. I know when I got pregnant and that is just few days before next cycle. So, my baby will come out 2 weeks after my due day (the day as Dr told me). So, Lucky1, it's the best for you to count 38 weeks from the day when you think you got pregnant(if you can know that) and from then count weeks of pregnancy! Let me tell you something! My last cycle was on 14 Nov., but I'm 5,5 week pregnant. Hope this will help you!:)

thursday jan 13 you will be 6 weeks pregnant if you are counting from your last period, but approx 4 weeks since conception...it all depends on how your doctor or the book your reading wants to date it.
