it's calculated based on the date of your last period as far as i know - doesn't make much sense to me but there you go!

you would be 18 weeks and your due date would be the 15th Oct 2006, gernally they always go from the date of your last period but in reality you probably only conceived two weeks after that but its how they calcalate out you due date but sure at the end of the day you could be early or late no one really knows for sure its just a guideline.

Letty it's calculated as 40 weeks from the first date of your last period which would make you approx 18weeks. However your date could differs slightly from the doctor. They calculate from this and baby weight and size etc. There shouldnt be a huge differs between both dates. So anywhere between both dates could be your due date.

Mrs E! the date of my last period was March 25th and my EDD is Dec 30th sounds about right for you as I am 6 weeks since Sat ....and you are just about a week or so after me !!
