When did I conceived?!?

Kymberly - posted on 02/09/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




My periods are very irregular so I do not have an LMP to base anything on. I did hae a very early ultrasound on Dec 23 that showed only the gestational sac (no fetal pole, heartbeat or yolk sac were visible). Can anyone tell me about how far along I am based on this information? I had an abdominal ultrasound on the 4th of Feb and baby measured 8.5 cm but she the nurse based my due date and conception date on a made up LMP so I'm not sure how accurate that is. Opinions greatly appreciated! TIA

If YOU can't tell when you conceived, how do you think a bunch of women on the internet could know? LMP is a normal basis on which to judge due date. Beyond that, no-one on the internet can really advise you.

Even for someone who is regular its a good guess most likely than not when a conception happened. The info you gave us is not going to give us any kind of idea any better than it did you. And what the doctor finds in an ultrasound is just a guess too and can be off. You need to talk to a doctor to find out how they plan to get an exact date...but congrats on the new one.
