Common Questions and Answers about Pregnancy calculator gestational age

pregnant

Avatar f tn So ur pregnancy isnt counted from gestational age, its counted from ur lmp, and gestational age is 2 wks afta that, is that rite?
Avatar f tn I was wondering when they do ultrasounds is that measuring gestation al age or actual fetal age? And is fetal age actually 2 weeks less than gestational age? I really need to know the answer from someone who deals with ultrasounds and pregnancy on a regular basis. Also, I'm pretty sure I conceived on or after August 24, 2009 and my due date is May 17, 2010. I need help!
Avatar m tn That's a description of a 4 week pregnancy, not an 8 week pregnancy where the heartbeat should be clearly present. It could also be true that he last period was truly Feb. 10, and that she had delayed ovulation. Either case, you'll know in 4 weeks. It sounds like you're the dad, and the pregnancy is only 4 weeks along.
Avatar f tn Usually the count allotted between the first day of your last period and the assumed day you ovulated is 14 days, or 2 weeks. The reason the GA (gestational age) count begins on the first day of your last period (or the assumed first day of your last period if you don't know) is because in the days when there were no ultrasounds, the best way they had to time the pregnancy was to start with the big, obvious signal of the first day of bleeding of the woman's last period.
Avatar n tn I went and the doctor saw nothing, just the gestational sac. She basically told me that I was having a chemical pregnancy and that I would probably miscarry withing the next week. Of course me and my husband were devastated. She told me she wanted me to get my hcg levels tested, so the next morning she had the results and the levels were still high.
Avatar m tn im also confused about fetal age and gestational age...would an ultrasound tell me the fetal age of my baby..is there any way of knowing this?
Avatar f tn My very first ultrasound was on August 11th and they said I was measuring 7 weeks and 1 day gestational age. My last period was June 8th until the 13th. My cycles are 26 days long and I did an ovulation calculator online and it says I ovulated from June 17 to June 22nd. I didnt have intercourse until June 29th and July 5th so I am not sure when I got pregnant as I was not ovulating and the 7 weeks and 1 day doesnt match up to a march 15th due date.
Avatar f tn It could be you, certainly. The sex you had in early May would be within a reasonable time after her period in mid-April. She had sex with someone else two weeks ago; that was late May, presumably she might have expected another period in mid-May if she had not been pregnant. However, some women's periods don't come on a regular schedule every month, so the fact that she didn't apparently have a period in May is not a guarantee you're the dad.
Avatar n tn Hi! My question is how can we differentiate pregnancy and pms symptoms?Every month i have symptoms like breast tenderness,tiredness,digestive problems,bloating and twinges in lower abdomen for about a week prior to my period.All of these symptoms resemble early pregnancy symptoms.Since i have been ttc,it becomes very difficult for me to understand during the two week wait.Kindly share your opinions.
Avatar n tn I am looking for more info on pregnancy after an endometrial ablation. I had an ablation in May 2002. January 2003 I was not feeling well and went to the family doctor. She thought it may be an ectopic pregnancy since I was told I was sterile. I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue.
Avatar f tn Also they say a lot of stress and worrying about pregnancy is not good. Thats why so many ppl have unexpected pregnancy they weren't making it a job. It will happen just be patient and have faith. I'm trying to but its so hard and I know. So her lately me and dh have just been doing other things to get out mind off of it!! Also got a ? though... Okay I'm on cd 12 should me and dh bd for the next 3 nights to up my chances?????
Avatar n tn -) you will get an ultrasound to determine gestational age of the baby, Or in other words how far along you are and to determine if there are multiple babies
Avatar m tn Ok, here is the stuff about "weeks pregnant." If a doctor, nurse, or any medical person, or a medical textbook, or anything medical, says someone is 6 weeks "pregnant", it is not a figure that counts back to conception. All medical counts of pregnancy (the so-called GA or gestational-age number -- "6 weeks 3 days" or "11 weeks 4 days") begin on the first day of the last period the woman had before getting pregnant.
Avatar n tn So, it is also possible you could be receiving a positive result due to the Ovidrel shot, not due to pregnancy. Wishing you the best of luck.......I am rooting for you!!!
Avatar f tn Early February. If you go to a pregnancy calculator site that gives you week by week gestational age like the one below and play with your period dates, a conception date of 2/7/98 gives a week 37 date of Oct 10, this assumes a 28 day cycle with a Day 14 ovulation http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/gettingpregnant/l/blpregcalc.
Avatar f tn There is a gestational age N then there is a fetal age. The gestational is where your baby is still an egg waiting to implant. The fetal age is how old the baby might just be, which could be more accurate from an ultra sound but the baby wont show until about ten Weeks. Doctors always go by your last menstrual period, this is just an estimate since there Is not a way to tell exactly when your baby implanted and started developing.
Avatar n tn Kriznamean, tell the doctor you are wanting to have the ultrasound (not the date of your last period) be what informs you of your estimated due date. Say you need an estimated due date that is based only on the size of the embryo and its developmental markers, not based on the date of your last period. (Tell the doctors that your cycles are irregular, so you can be sure he does not use the first day of your last period to tell you how far along you are.
Avatar f tn An early ultrasound can provide a more accurate gestational age and due date. It should be done EARLY in pregnancy for best results. So, request an ultrasound to help date the pregnancy and you'll take all the guess work out of it. Congratulations on the pregnancy. Hope you have a happy and healthy one.
Avatar f tn According to the calculator going from your last menstrual period, you are 10 wks Gestational age of the baby from the moment of conception is 8 wks. Are you reading what is off of the picture of the ultrasound or is that what the doctor said?
Avatar f tn The two weeks before you actually conceive are counted toward your pregnancy because its the time your body prepares for pregnancy.
Avatar f tn If the hospital told you they go by gestational age, they don't go by date of conception. (I've actually never heard of a medical person using any other kind of count besides GA. To get a date of conception out of a doctor, you have to work backwards from the estimated due date on a conception calculator, or ask the doctor very specifically, using the word "conception.") The "weeks pregnant" counts are what they call gestational age. Did you get an estimated due date yet?
Avatar f tn Especially if the ultrasound was relatively early in your pregnancy, you can plug the due date into a calculator for an approximate conception date.
Avatar f tn i transfered 3 embies&suppose there r 3 to freeze in lab but they were growing slower so they said will wait till reach good size then freeze but for my 3 transfered they were good at exact time of transfer,my transfer was last thursday 24/4 &still i'll test pregnancy next thursday,a whole waiting week waits me,u said u'll make 3rd beta test,how many times do we make it?is it quantitative or qualitative?
Avatar n tn I was just wondering if anyone could tell me when I should start to having pregnancy symptoms after iui. I am 6 days post iui and yesterday I started feeling naused. It woke me up during the night and I still feel the same today. I don't know if I have a bug or if is maybe a sign. I also took 10,000 units of HCG trigger shot but it has been 8 days since I had shot so I don't know if that could be it. Please HELP!!!
Avatar f tn Right, 7 weeks one day on August 11. That means, you count back 5 weeks one day to determine the time when you actually were fertile and conceived. And that's July 6. Because you get two "free" weeks. I know it's confusing - I think really, you just have to accept it but not necessarily understand the counting formula.
Avatar f tn You should get an ultrasound. They can give you an estimated due date with some accuracy (give or take a couple of days) at this point. You can then plug that into a conception calculator and it will compute your most likely conception date. Doctors start the count for pregnancy on the first day of your last period, and will give you a "gestational age" based on that. (Don't be fooled by the term "gestational age," it does not mean age of embryo based on conception.
Avatar f tn I'm confused because I had sex oct 20th and 21st but says I ovulated on the 27th when I also had sex. I went for a gender determintation when I was suppose to be 16 weeks gestational age and the aua was 14 weeks and 6 days which was oct 22 but I didn't supposibly conceive or ovulate until the 27th. I went in for an ob appointment when I was suppose to be 17 weeks and 6 days and the doctor said my babys GA was 15 weeks and 2 days which wouldve been oct.
Avatar n tn If you were given a age of 6 weeks 1 day, that means that conception occured AROUND 4 weeks 1 day before the ultrasound was performed (they add two weeks to the conception date since gestational age goes by the date of your last period). Its really almost impossible to pinpoint the exact day unless you had fertility procedures done however.
Avatar f tn I went for an ultrasound on the 23th April and the gestational age of my baby was 13 weeks 2 days. The problem is i slept with someone on the 20th of january and another had a regular period on the 25th of january. I then slept with someone else on the 7,8,9,10 of february. then did a pregnancy test at the end of february which was positive. Can someone pls help calculate when conception was likely and the auraccy of the ultrasound. I have been given a due date of 27th of October.
