Late ovulation: Since your pregnancy test was positive so much later than your missed period, you likely had a late ovulation and late conception, which is very common. Have a trans-vaginal ultrasound by an ob/gyn physician in 7 weeks or so, to verify your true gestational age and due date. Your last period is not too reliable.
