Hello I am concerned about when I conceived. My last period was on the 28th of March 2012. I am due on the 3rd of January 2013 I am now 9weeks and 5days. I did a calculating on a website an it said I conceived between the 7th and 15th of April. I know I had sex in March and possibly in early April. I also tried to have sex but wasn't successful meaning he says he didn't ejaculated an only last literally under 5mins this was on the 14th of April but actually around 12am so I guess this would be considered the 15th of April which is my last day to conceive so did I get pregnant on my last day to conceive which was the 15tg of April or was I already pregnant?Thanks for the help.!
