I've done a pretty good job of totally confusing myself. Can someone tell me how many weeks/ days preg I am???
Last period started 28th November 2012. I have roughly a 28 day cycle. I did a clear blue preg test with week indicator today that said 2-3 weeks. I looked up " how many weeks preg am I " and last night it said 4w 1d today it just told me 5w2 days. I'm totally confused now unsure.gif and a bit embarresed  rolleyes.gif
Cheers in advance.

Oh and my due date is 29th August 2013

You count day 1 of your pregnancy as the first day of your last period, ie. 28 Nov.

So that would make you 4w 3d today. If you are sure of your dates, which it sounds like you are, go by the calendar, not the hpk.

Congrats!!!

Just check on the box...if I remember rightly you need to add two weeks to what the indicator says? So that would time in right with what you think you would be original.gif
Congrats

Thanks ladies original.gif I got extremely confused. Still am a bit. I normally have a 21 day cycle but the doc said because of d&c after miss cartridge and it was 28 days after d&c i got my af and fell within that month to calculate with a 28 day cycle. happy.gif If I went straight back to a 21 day cycle after dc then I'm due in aug, if not sept. I'll stick with four weeks 3 days unless scan tells me otherwise. Thank you again  biggrin.gif
I think I might just enjoy fitting into my jeans that week longer though  tongue.gif

Clearblue Digital tests calculate from ovulation not LMP.

I get 5th September as your EDD. If you have a 28 day cycle, you count nine months and seven days forward and that is your EDD. You alter the number depending on your cycle though.

And for a first birth I'd be going for the later date anyway - gives you more time to fend off induction wink.gif.
