When was your last p: Normal period, that is what you count from so if your last normal period was july 8th then you would be 7 weeks gestation, it is 40 weeks form your last period to your due date, but see your OB as u can get an early ultrasound, to make sure fetus is alive, in the uterus and to tell you how far along you are.

Roughly 5 wks now: You probably conceived some time around 2 wks before missing your period. From the 8th until now is 20 days...So, at this time you are somewhere around the 5 wks mark. Take your prenatal, keep active/exercising if you have been doing so. Eat well and so your doc as soon as you can. Congratulations and best of luck.

FDLMP: We use the "first day of last menstural period" to calculate this.It is not exact ! expect you were impregnated on day 11-16 of your cycle and calculate from there.
