I am in my 6th week (counting from first date of LMP), however, whenever I go to create a ticker and put in my due date, I am always a week or more behind than I should be, I am totally confused with all this date stuff
Agree totally Mrs GK!!! I found that all the different tickers were telling me different things, with as much as 2 weeks in the difference between some!!
Have a good seach around for the ticker that most matches what you're looking for - put in your due date that your doc gave you, rather than the last menstrual period date....
GK I used Lilypie.com and you can enter either the due date which makes it easier.
Thanks Jarashow, that helped, much better, at least the ticker is more onto the real dates now, I found the ticker was useful when I was counting down to the wedding, so I think it will be useful for the baby too..
It's how it's worded - you are 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant, but that means that you are into your 6th week, as you have already completed 5 full weeks. Once you reach 5 weeks even, that is the end of the 5th week. When you are 5 weeks 1 day, that is the start of the 6th week. I know it's confusing, especially if you're looking at week by week information on different sites!
aha Jellybaby, that absolutely makes sense - thanks for that!!
