Due Conception Calculating Question

rich68xr7 - November 2

According to all the due date/conception calculators I have used it says that Conception date was most likely around Oct 3rd, but then says that we are in week six of the pregnancy. Six weeks back from today is around Sept 21st. Every dif system i have used has said the same thing(a day or two off in some cases) . LMP was on sept 19th. Am I missing something? 4 weeks since conception, but six weeks along? Any thoughts would be appriciated. Thanks

When conception occurs you are already considered 2 weeks pregnant, the doctors go by the first day of our last menstrual period because there is no way to know when conception actually occured. Full term pregnancy is 40 weeks from your last menstrual period and 38 weeks from conception, I hope that helps ; )

Well you had your period on sept 19th thats why its saying that you are 6wks. They always go by your last period even though you could've conceived before then.
