They calculate from the start of your last period. That's where a lot of women get confused. The woman counts from the time she had sex, the doctor counts from the period. That can be a few weeks out.

It may have been 6 weeks since you had sex but it's probably 8 weeks since you had your last period.

Doctors can only estimate how far along we are and what our due dates are. I would let the doctor know on your next visit you think he is wrong, and why. He may re-evaluate you, and hopefully will take an ultra sound. I would not worry much about it. If you know he is wrong due to when you had sex, then you know you are right and should be able to calculate your due date.
