If the doc said you were 8 weeks then you're 8 weeks...they count from your last period.

i doubt it, if she 8weeks, she would mean 8weeks from LMP(last period), thats how they usually count it unless they tell you otherwise, they normally tell you this as conception can be tricky to pinpoint, hope this helps :o)

well actually i dont know the date of my last peroid and my last period was regular anyways so i think im farther along then 8 weeks the nurse told me last week when i went in you have to be at least 9-10 weeks along to hear the fetal heart beat with a dopplar and we heard it then they also told me last week when i was in that i was about 8 weeks then and how a week later im 8 again its confusing me really bad

You'll probably get another scan at your next doc's appt in order to get a better guess on how far along you are. If they gave you a due date of 11/08/06 then you are currently 8 weeks 3 days pregnant. Of course this can vary by four or five days depending on if you ovulated late or early...Here's a little info for you regarding ultrasounds and dates *********If you have an ultrasound and there is only a 3 day difference between the ultrasound due date and a due date based on a last menstrual period, there is no medical justification for changing your due date to the ultrasound date if the built-in error for the ultrasound date is only ± 5 days. Statistically, these dates are identical since the 3 day difference is less than the 5 day Standard Error of Mean. It only makes sense to change a due date to an ultrasound due date if the difference between the due date based on a last menstrual period and the ultrasound due date exceeds the built-in error for the ultrasound due date. Many care providers use the "7-14-21" rule for changing a due date based on a last menstrual period to an ultrasound due date. The 7-14-21 rule means that you change the due date to the ultrasound date only if the difference between the ultrasound date and due date based on a last menstrual period is more than 7 days for first trimester ultrasounds, 14 days for second trimester ultrasounds and 21 days for third trimester ultrasounds. A trimester is about one-third of a pregnancy, or about 13 weeks. In close cases, care providers are more inclined to accept the ultrasound date if the last menstrual period is unreliable. As a general rule, if there are two ultrasounds with two different ultrasound dates (a very common occurrence), the earliest ultrasound date is considered more reliable. If you are uncertain about what date is being used for your due date, discuss it with your care provider. Your obstetrical care provider should be willing to explain what date is being used for your due date and why that date is being used.

If you are due the 18th of Nov, you and I share the same due date. I am 8 weeks, so they are right. My last period was 2/11 so yours must have been around then. I conceived somewhere between 2/26 and 3/1. My cycles are a little long so I don't ovulate on day 14. When you conceived depends on how long your cycles are.
