## Can the doctor tell you the exact date you conceived?

An ultrasound can more accurately determine the date of conception and the gestational age. For your ultrasound measurements are taken of the gestational sack and the crown to rump length of the fetus. These measurements are used to estimate the gestational age of your pregnancy.

## When did I conceive based on my due date?

Conception usually occurs around 11-21 days after the first day of the last period of a woman who has a regular period. The estimation of conception date is based on this, but is rarely ever exact since it is difficult to know exactly when ovulation occurs.

## How long does it take after conception to become pregnant?

Pregnancy doesn’t start the day you have sex — it can take up to six days after sex for the sperm and egg to join and form a fertilized egg. Then, it can take three to four days for the fertilized egg to completely implant itself in the lining of the uterus.

## Can my conception date be wrong by 2 weeks?

Ovulation isn’t a perfect science and can happen earlier or later than the norm, which might shift your due date slightly. That’s okay…a few days or even a week of discrepancy won’t change your dates. Your doctor will go with the due date obtained from your ultrasound.

## How can you tell who the father is during pregnancy?

The first is non-invasive prenatal paternity testing, which involves sampling the DNA in your blood. This is then compared to DNA from a cheek swab taken from each potential dad. It can be carried out from seven weeks of pregnancy. The second is invasive prenatal paternity testing.

## How do doctors determine how many weeks pregnant?

To account for the two weeks prior to conception, doctors take the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP) and add 280 days (or 40 weeks) to determine the due date. From there, you can also determine how far along you are by counting how many weeks it has been since the first day of your last period.
