So, I did ovulation tests and i know when i ovulated, we had sex between the 12th-16th April, and I fell pregnant. I have no yet had my first ultrasound and I am breast feeding my 1 year old, so have not had a period in 2 years. But I know that is the exact time i conceived as the last time we had sex before that was February!

So, why do they say you are already 2 weeks pregnant?! I put in my conception date and it calculates me to be 5 weeks and 2 days pregnant because they add the 2 weeks, but really wouldn't I only be 3 weeks and 2 days?! (Thats going off 12th, could be anywhere between 12-16th but you know what i mean!)
Seeing as I do know the EXACT day around abouts that i conceived and its impossible that i conceived any other time. Also, no period. Sooo?

Because it is measure from the beginning of your last menstrual period. Not from conception date. Medically, you are 5 weeks 2 days.

You also could not possibly know exactly when you conceived. You don't know when the sperm and egg met. You only know when you had sex. It may have been a 4 day journey, you don't know for sure. Just saying.
