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?

Right on, Kat. You sometimes see a reference to gestational age which is from conception, and pregnancy which by convention is from LMP. For due date count 266 days from the former or 280 days from the latter. In your case, Lucky, your due date calculated on conception will be almost a week later than date calculated on LMP, because you don't have a 28 day cycle. It's neither here nor there, because those day counts are averages and you may be more or less than average. COngratulations, and good luck!
