no, I'm happily married. Not that kind of dating LOL!!


So, if you count from LMP, I'm "7 weeks" pregnant.

When I look at pictures of fetal development, and they say "7 weeks", is that from LMP, or from conception?

I'm confooozed...

if you mean last menstrual period than yes i'm almost sure that's where they start counting b/c unless you had ivf then noone really knows the conceptionn date,just time frame....i think.

yes, usually it's from LMP. Depending on which website/book you are using, they should specify somewhere what they are using. Babycenter.com definitely does it that way. But I noticed my Dr. Sears book does 'fetal age' which is LMP-2 weeks, assuming 28 day cycles - it's approximately weeks since conception. Also, some places like babycenter.com will put you as however many weeks you have completed. so if you are IN week 8 it will say 'you are 7 weeks pregnant.' But other books that describe pregnancies week by week actually talk about what's happening during the week in question. Have I sufficiently added to the confusion??
