How do you determine how far along you are?

This confused me when I was pregnant with DS, and now I don't remember what my OB told me then. If my LMP was June 5, and I ovulated on/around 6/22, would that make me 2-3 weeks pregnant, or 4-5 weeks? AAGH!!

The Ob's count from your lmp, so you'd be 4-5 wks pg.

Well I have very weird cycles. My cycles normall last 45 days so my docs nurse went by the day I o'd and then added two weeks on so I am 4 weeks yesturday!!!!!!!!!!! I am even more confused : Baby is taking all my brain capacity and other senses but do they take our smell NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOO. I cant even stand the smell of baby powder now.

Don't be confused.... due dates counted by LMP go based on the assumption that everyone ovulates on day 14... If you ovulate way later than that, just start with your ovulation date and add 2 weeks, so when you ovulate you are "two weeks pregnant" - its just to get you on the same footing as everyone else so that we're all speaking the same language... because remember, the majority of folks don't chart and don't know when they ovulated, but most ladies can remember their LMP, which is why docs go based on this method. (glad you got all the ovulation confusion cleared up!!)
