I was never good at math!!!!!

I am soooo confused!!! And my pregnancy brain is not helping me figure things out, so I am hoping for some help from y'all! According to my last u/s the doctor said my LMP was recorded as August 2nd..however in my calendar it is August 1st. Okay then my nurse told me how far along I was after my second beta and it was on September 2nd and she said I was 4 weeks and 2 days! Then at my u/s my doctor said I was 6 weeks and 5 days on September 18th!! Which leads me to complete confusion!!! I thought that yesterday I was 7 weeks and I think I was actually 7 weeks and 1 day!! I am not sure what to go by and I feel like a total dope!!!!! And I really want to get the timing right b/c I want to document as much as I can! Okay so would you just go with what the doctor said at the u/s??? And of course there is the whole where babe measured at the u/s, which was just 6 weeks. However, the doc did say that at the next u/s it would be more accurate!

I am 7 weeks and 2 days today!!! I think :D I need to go back and make some adjustments on my blog posts!

I know what you mean! I am going by the date according to my beta and LMP. The baby measured ahead by about 3 days on my first two ultrasounds, but I'm not sure after that. We go again today, so we'll see where we are! Good luck trying to figure it out!

I know its all confusing!! I went and looked at my old ultrasounds. All of my ultrasounds differed and never matched up to how far along I thought I was(different by a couple days here and there)...plus the due date was always different because of this.
First U/S due date was 10/19
Second U/S due date was 10/21
I acutally had my daughter on 10/13

Just think of it as an estimate.... and I would go by what the doctor tells you.

I would go by what the doctor says. My ultrasounds all were different also and therefore gave me different due dates.

1st U/S due date was 10/19
2nd U/S due date was 10/21
I had my daughter on 10/13

I think, not sure, that you have to figure in the gestational age of your baby and add that to when he/she was transferred. Does that sound right? Shauna probably knows. Anyway, we're still praying!!!
