Also, I got a question about how I’m 6 weeks pregnant and I noticed my ticker on the right says I’m on day 28..it is all kind of confusing so here’s an explanation. My pregnancy started on 5/8 because this was the first day of my last menstrual period. That’s they way the date it! So by the time I got to Egg Retrieval I was already 2 weeks along. By the time the 2ww was over I was already 4 weeks. Now, the ticker over there is talking about the age of my fetus – my fetus was conceived (egg meets sperm) on 5/22 because that was the day of my Egg Retrieval. on 5/22 I was already 2 weeks pregnant by traditional dating. So, both the ticker on the right and the “We are 6.0 weeks pregnant” are correct – one is using gestational measurement (the length of pregnancy – 40 weeks) and the other is using the developmental age of my baby (38 weeks beginning in week 2). Confused? I am now six weeks pregnant and my baby is 4 weeks old. If I deliver on my due date (yeah right) I will be 40 weeks pregnant but my baby will be 38 weeks old.
I’m glad I could clear that up. =/
