Grandpa viv. I have a question for you. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago according to my lmp I should have been a little over 8 weeks. My lmp was April 25th. When I had my ultrasound at my apt 2 weeks ago the technician said my due date is Feb 5 2018 and that I'm def not as far along as thought and I was only 6 weeks and and 4 days. When i had asked  the technician said probably ovulated later. Anyways I had sex the 8th of may and 10th with someone. But mother days weeked I was with someone else. Ultrasound tech said I conceived anywhere between the 12th and the 20 of may. What are your thoughts on the dates I conceived? I'm trying to figure out the father

BM, that's getting too close to call. An early ultrasound is accurate to a day or two and a Feb 5 due date ties in with ovulation May 12th. Evidently you were fixing to have a 35 day cycle. Sperm from 10th could have survived inside long enough to fertilize the egg, or the egg might have been a day or two late. I think a paternity test will be needed.

Thank you. I ordered the prenatal dna test. So hopefully I'll have it done fairly soon. I'm hoping i got preg on the 12th and that it's the 2nd man's child  we shall see

Grandpa viv i have a question. I am confused too about the gestational and baby age. I came off the deop shot a couple of months ago and have been bleeding every 2 weeks. So i am not sure when my period was. I was given a pregnancy test on the 27th of june and it was negative. Then i took a pregnancy test the 14th of july it was positive. I had to go to the ER concerning the baby and a transvaginal ultrasound detected a heartbeat at 128 bpm. And the CRL was .62 cm. The doctor said i am 6 weeks and 3 days gestational age. When could i have concieved? I told them my last period could have been around may 23rd or June8th.

Mag, gestational age counts from the supposed last period. Conception would have been at ovulation two weeks later. That looks like June 13th. Sex the weekend of the 11th could be responsible.

I need help! I had sex on the 25/26th of November 2016 and my partner ejaculated in me everytime. Then I got my period on the 16th of December. I then had sex with someone else on the 21st of December. At first he didn't use protection for like 5 minutes then he put on a condom but we ended up stopping things before he could have ejaculated. We then had sex again on the 27th but mostly foreplay up until the last two to three minutes but he pulled out and ejaculated away from me.. I didn't get my period in January and my cycle is always 30-31 days about 7 days long everytime. I am having doubt about who the father is. According to the doctors I am 35w 3 days with an edd of September 22nd.

Your due date suggests ovulation Dec 29th which would have been neatly fertilized by sperm fr the 27th. Your November sex was within 10 days of the next period and not on the fertile window

Even though he didn't ejaculate in me? And based off my November 16th period I would have ovulated anywhere from the 28 to the 3rd and I know they say sperms can live uo to 5 to 7 days. Also my December period only lasted about 4 days started off little heavy for the first two days then spots after that. So I am still confused

My Ultrasound has me very confused. I had my first ultrasound on July 10th and the tech told me I was measuring at 20 weeks and 2 days. He set My EDD to November 25th , When I Counted Back 20 weeks and 2 days that was the exact day my last LMP started. Online the conception calculators state i conceived Feb25-Mar4 when I know for a fact my lmp started feb 25 and ended in the beginning of March. Also on top of My ultrasound it said GA: 18w 3D ... I'm very confused about this all because my bf is questioning paternity

Grandpa Viv I need your expertise, So My Only Ultrasound I had during pregnancy was July 10th the Ultrasound tech stated I was 20 weeks and 2 days and placed my EDD November 25th. When I counted back 20 weeks and 2 days that is the exact day I got my LMP which is Feb 25th. Using online conception calculators it stated I would have conceived Feb 25 - Mar4th when I know for a fact my LMP was Feb25th till the beginning of March. Also at the top of the ULtrasound it said GA 18w 3D .. What does all this mean

 

Grandpa Viv - September 3

Jessie, all is as it should be. Weeks of pregnancy should take you back to your last period, commonly called gestational age. It's not really the conception date. That happens at ovulation two weeks later, which is where the 18w3d comes in, commonly called fetal age.  Sex in the five days before to one day after ovulation can get you pregnant.

I spoke to the ultrasound tech he said it was only 7 days off , I'm still confused , based on his due date my LMP would have started Feb 18 when in fact it started Feb 25, so why when I do a conception calculator it states that I conceived march 4th but the fetal age on the ultrasound states March 10th 

 

Grandpa Viv - September 13

Tameka, if you ovulated and got pregnant Nov 25th you would deliver Aug 18th.

hello anyone on this forum still that can help me? basically i am 25 weeks pregnant npw, but ive had this confusion since i found out i was pregnant, my lmp was april 20th, ever since my firsu ultra sound until now i measure 4 days behind, for instance 12w6d gestatio age but doctor wrote 12w2d instead, so my due date was january 25th but my last ultrasound i was still on point measuring 4 days earlier so she said closer to the 29th of january but she never really changed my due date, just told me personally. so my question is when did i get pregnant? my doctor said between the 4th -8th of may. is that correct? does 4 days earlier just mean i ovulated on the 18th day rather then the 14th since they have consistatly been meauring the same? anyones answers are appreciate!!! thank u

Rose, gestational age assumes you have 28 day cycles and ovulate on cycle day 14. Some women ovulate on cycle day 10, while a 32 day cycle would have you ovulate on cycle day 18. Sperm can last inside you for 5 days. If you are trying to figure paternity on sex a few days apart, a DNA test is the only way to go.
