It's exactly 3 weeks since I conceived so am I now in week 5 or week 6? I'm confused.
I know that technically I'm 5 weeks pregnant today but does that mean that I am now in week 6. Sorry to sound brain dead!! Any idea anyone?
You start counting from the first day of your last period. Your forty weeks start from that point.
[quote="justforfunsies":21on3pat]You start counting from the first day of your last period. Your forty weeks start from that point.
This is a question that often confuses me too, what justforfunsies says is not technically true for all cases. It is true if you have cycles that are 28 days (ie 4 weeks). If you dont (mine are 35 days approx) its not true. According to Taking Charge of Your Fertility if you know when you ovulated/conceived you count 1 week before that. So if you conceived 4 weeks ago, you are now 5 weeks pregnant. It still confuses me though.
thanks girls. I did a bit of searching online and now I know that I am 5 weeks not 6. Only another 35 to go!!!!
or if you put up a ticker it will tell you exactly - by entering your due date (though again this is subject to cycle variations too)
I had the same problem last week - see my thread down the page somewhere - it's called "Confused re. Dates.
