Does EVERYONE Count This Way

Hello! I'm 15 weeks pregnant with my first. That's counting from conception, not LMP. I know the doctors count from LMP, so according to them, I'm 17 weeks. Just wondering, how do all of you count? Do most of the pregnancy books count the same way the doctors do? It's confusing me...

I count from LMP. The books I have count from LMP, or both. It may depend on what country you live in?? I'm in the US.

The standard is to count from LMP unless, you don't remember, or have irregular cycles. In that case, they would give you an ultrasound, and date the pregnancy that way, which I am sure they would give you your due date based on conception, and tell you how many weeks you are, based on LMP.
