I thought I was 16 weeks but I just had my ultrasound and it now says i'm 13 weeks and 3 days. So to be able to follow in my books the progress of my baby, do I follow gestational or the since conception?

Th ultrasound is usually right because they measure the baby, I'd go with the 13 weeks they've tolled you (that should be 13 weeks on a 40 week pregnancy.)

So then it would be since conception that I follow in my books, not gestational (since the first day of my last period) right?

You can use either one. Both should lead you up to your due date. Gestational counts 2 weeks since your LMP and 38 weeks counts the time the baby was concieved. If I am correct the ultrasound should give the fetal age, which would be a 38 week pregnancy. Add 2 weeks to do a 40 week. Example 40 week pregnancy would make you 15 weeks and 3 days. Confirn with the doc next time. Best of luck

yea me too. I woke up this morning and you would swear that I did not eat for days. I had two ham/cheese sandwich on wheat bread and two small fruit juices for dinner. so far I have eaten 3 times today and now I am hurgry (straving). My pains are on the left and seems to be fading now. I also had a very exciting kick last friday. Take care

hi you all, question if iam 22 weeks when is my due date and when did i conceived

 

Tanja - April 19

when was the fist day of your last period

 

karen - April 19

Your doc should have told you that at your first visit. Count from the First day of your last peroid to 40 weeks and that is your due date. I had mine figured out before the doc told me. Its not hard.If your 22 weeks then you have 18 weeks left. Good luck
