    Default I'm a little confused..

    I tried the online due date calculator and it says I'm 5 weeks and 5 days but it is exactly that since my last period started, isn't the amount of time you've been pregnant since when you conceived? I really have no idea about all this so if someone could please clarify that would be wonderful

    It's always calculated from the first day of your last period

    Yup, you aren't actually pregnant for the first two weeks of your pregnancy. All the dates are counted from your LMP eve though you didn't actually conceive for two weeks after that.

    So gestation is actually 38 weeks but they call it 40 as there's the 2 weeks between your last period and ovulation added in
