134578 tn?1578157483 The medical way of dating pregnancy gives you a 40-week pregnancy, when in fact pregnancy from conception to birth is 266 days long. The extra two weeks are to take you back to the first day of your last period. ALL MEDICAL COUNTS BEGIN AT DAY 1 OF THE PERIOD. All medical books, charts, graphs, measurements, tests are calibrated to that count. They know that the first two weeks, you weren't pregnant. The charts, graphs and measurements all account for that.

This day and age of early detection of pregnancy, the count that begins on Day 1 of your period seems hard to understand.
1149221 tn?1304827966 As some women know, I was studying to become a Nurse. Throughout the journey to conception, I discovered an intense passion I didn't know the depth of. The fascination started when I watched my nephew enter the world. I watched the OB walk in moments before my sister's son breathed his first breath. She mechanically went through the process of snipping my sisters perineum, stretching her walls, snipping the cord as fast as possible. In my naive mind, it was beauty.
Avatar n tn I used to work at a DR.'s office and have a pregnancy wheel, let me check it. ok.
Avatar n tn The heart should begin to beat at about 25 days post conception. If you know your conception date, just add two weeks to that. Otherwise you count from your last period.
4573769 tn?1356672346 Generally the reason something like a conception calculator asks for the birth date or estimated due date is because it assumes the woman got that date from an ultrasound in their first trimester. Conception calculators also can be set to compute from the first day of the last period, for women who didn't have an ultrasound.
134578 tn?1578157483 4 weeks = 1 month A normal pregnancy lasts 280 days from your LMP which is about 266 days from conception to birth. The first two weeks of your pregnancy includes the time of your period, ovulation and fertilization. Conception occurs approximately 14 - 16 days after the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP). The date of conception is not always known and can vary between women. The date of LMP is known by most women so doctors use this date as a starting point for pregnancy.

676912 tn?1332812551 My doctor offered no advice, just left to check what kind they had and returned only for a quick pop in to say my prescription was sent to the pharmacy, where they instructed me on when to take it only. So, yes I could have asked the pharmacist, and hind sight is always 20-20...I don't know if I will try to get pregnant the first time I ovulate or the next.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering if it's ok to masterbate or have sex while in the early stages of pregnancy? I'm worried because when I do those I really work my lower stomach muscles and I am wondering if this can harm my baby or cause developmental issues. Also, around the time I conceived I went on a vacation and drank alcohol and I am scared that I have caused damage that way too, not to mention I am worried and full of anxiety right now. Can someone help me answer those questions thanks!
Avatar m tn s my child but am still confused. is it possible for a child to be born in the 10th month? how do i count the pregnancy stages/months? do i include the first two months or exclude to get 9 months? Besides has she gone with someone else after me? Pls explain the fertility period. i don't want to go for DNA Tests coz i really want to understand the menstruation and pregnancy stages/phases. i am extremely depressed and this could lead to a divorce.
379021 tn?1199540569 I am very petite 1,5m tall and 45kg on average. I wondered if there are other similar sized women out there who can tell me about their experience of the pregnancy and birth. Also, I would like to know if there are many women who experience spotting on conception, and if so, how much blood to expect. Also, how long after the assumed conception date can one expect to experience spotting. I was pregnant once before, and I became extremely ill in the first two months, with severe nausea.
