hi, how is every one? basicaly im very confused about how many weeks pregnant i am, since the doctor says one thing, i calculate one thing and on the calender on the net says another... i have no clue any more please can any one just tell me how far along i am, the doctor says im into my 13th week??? i dougt it since i calculated and found out im into my 15th week, but on the net it says im 16 into 17 weeks????help
THE FIRST DAY OF MY LAST PERIOD WAS ON SEPTEMBER 30TH 2005, ON A FRIDAY, SO HOW FAR ALONG AM I AND WHEN AM I REALY DUE... ANY ANSWER WOULD BE GREATFUL AND APPRECIATED...
I'm not a doctor, so I couldn't say for sure, but... My guess is that you are in your 15th week. I don't understand how your doctor is calculating that.
Edit: Why don't you ask him/her to make things clear for you?
Your dr is counting lunar weeks, instead of adding two weeks before and after to add 40 weeks , he is counting lunar weeks, my dr does this for charting purposes but you are due July 7th, 2006 of your last menses was Sept 30th this would make you 14 weeks and 4 days today Jan 10, 2006 (gestational weeks) Congrats!
Friday - the way you are doing it is based on the fact that you know your due date. I suppose for anyone who has been told a definite due date that this is a good way to mark your calendar so you can keep track of what week you are in!
As for being told 3 different things...just consider the first day of your last period as the first day of your 40 weeks of pregnancy! This would make your due date July 7/06 as Calgarygirl already stated which puts you at the end of your 15th week.
First day of last period isn't everything. FIrst day of my last period was Oct 3 and my due date is July 26. Apparently I ovulated late and my periods are always like clockwork (as in Sept 3, Oct 3, Nov 3, etc.).
The first day of your last menstral cycle may not be everything but it is what every doctor goes by. If you ovulate later I guess that will be picked up when you have an ultrasound or based on when you were able to get a positive pregnancy test.
Most likely you are almost 15 weeks according to the 40 week pregnancy calandar. If you really want a more specific medical diagnosis, see if you can get an u/s to measure your baby!
Hi, I have one of those pregnancy wheel charts they use at the doctors office to determine your due date. Going by this and of today's date(1-11-06) it says you are 14 wks. and 3 days , due on July 8. It also says that conception most likely occured on oct. 14, missed period on oct. 28. you should have an ultrasound around Feb. 5-20. Hope this helps.
thank you all so much, i appreciate all your replies, it helped me figure it out more now, thank you. im very happy that i passed the miscarriage stages, so that is very good news...i just want to say thank you again...
i met my hubby july 9th, its amazing that im due on that month, wow
take care every one
