Well it's 38 weeks from conception, or 40 weeks from your last period. So you are 36 weeks pregnant since Monday and are due on the 3rd of March. Is that about right?

thanks priscilla - thats what the hosp keep saying - march 5th, i keep saying march 8th cos it gives me a few days leeway without folk asking have i popped yet! my gp is working off my lmp dates which are more than a week later so i had a little panic today - thanks for your help!

i used and it gave me the same date as the hospital (although im just thinking im going with a 32 day cycle and I had been on the pill for years so I could have had a 28 day cycle.....interesting!)

Even with a 'normal' 28 day cyle, ovulation can be anywhere from cd12 - cd18 or so so it's hard to tell, but it's only a week in the difference. If your conception date was actually a BD date, then it could have been up to 5 days later that conception actually took place, so it's still a week either way. If it comes to a stage where induction is brought up, I think the hospital will go by their scan dates anyway unless you're sure of dates yourself....but as for others, just lie and tell them you're due March 15th or something like that >:o)
