2 weeks and 3 days pregnant?

2 weeks and 3 days pregnant?

Yes?: A pregnancy test will be positive if a woman is 2 weeks and 3 days pregnant. It would be much to early to see on an ultrasound. But a blood or even a home urine test would be positive. There can be false negatives on urine tests if a woman has been drinking a lot of water. A test will turn positive sooner if a woman is dehydrated like first thing in the morning when she gets up. ...Read more

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Should i take a pregnancy test 2 or 3 weeks after intercourse ?

If no normal period: If one's normal regular menstrual period doesn't come when expected, and it has been two and a half weeks or three weeks since having sex, then one can do a home urine pregnancy test.

What are my chances of being preg if haven sex 2 or 3 days before conception date missed conception date Nd sex 2 or 3 days after no protection?

What are my chances of being preg if haven sex 2 or 3 days before conception date missed conception date Nd sex 2 or 3 days after no protection?

20-25%: 2-3 days prior to the date of conception and 2-3 days after are pretty good times to try and get pregnant. The "conception date" is really just an estimate of when ovulation might occur but its not that accurate as there is quite a bit of variability women to women. As a general rule, the chance of getting pregnancy in any month of unprotected intercourse is 20-25%. Best wishes. ...Read more

Swollen vaginal walls, cervix low & bloated for 3 weeks. Negative HPT 2 weeks ago. Possibly pregnant or something else?

Swollen vaginal walls, cervix low & bloated for 3 weeks. Negative HPT 2 weeks ago. Possibly pregnant or something else?

Need for examination: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you. Please see your doctor or better yet, a gynecologist. You may have a sexually transmitted disease like herpes. You may repeat hpt if you have not had a period since the last test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Im 3 weeks late, unprotected sex 3 1 / 2 weeks ago, 4 neg hpt's ( 2 were taken today ), very light foggy white discharge, no pregnancy symptoms. Why?

Amenorrhea: You most likely did not ovulate last month or there were other circumstances that interfered. Reading between the lines, however, you also did not appear to have had sex on the right days to get pregnant if you were ovulating. You are only likely to get pregnant with sperm deposited on the five days of ovulation. Ovulation occurs just shy of half way through your cycle and the five days prior... ...Read more

Gestational age: We use the 1st day of your period to calculate gestational age. Therefore it takes 40 weeks to get to your due date, or EDC. Women can ovulate early or later in their cycle. So obgyn doctors use 1st day of your period to estimate gestational age. ...Read more

Implanon removal 3 weeks ago finished period 2 weeks ago have pcos trying for baby number 2 light bleeding 2 weeks after period and cramps?

?: It will take a little while to see if you get regular periods. Most women with pcos don't ovulate much, so you may need help getting pregnant. The bleeding and cramps suggest that you may have some buildup of uterine lining. ...Read more

Can a blood test turn positive at 2 weeks pregnant an 3 days ?

Can a blood test turn positive at 2 weeks pregnant an 3 days ?

No: That is too soon. One should patiently wait until missing a period or 3 weeks after sex (the date that conception might have happened), whichever comes sooner, and just do a home pregnancy test. The home test is for the urine and is very accurate at that time. If the result is positive, one would be 4-5 weeks pregnant. (at 2 weeks 3 days pregnant, conception would have been about yesterday.). ...Read more

Period 3 weeks late . Usually  2 to 3 weeks apart. Lmp august 26. 3 negative hpt. Sore breast  and migraines. Started fertility pills in august. Ideas?

Inconsistent info: LMP was August 26 and period being 3 weeks late do not add up. If a correctly done hpt was negative at 3 weeks after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. Wish you good health and a healthy baby. ...Read more

5 weeks + pregnant, looking 3 months. Could it be twins or relaxed muscles from a previous miscarriage 3 months ago?

Neither : At five weeks the baby is only about 1 cm or less. That's too small to affect the size of your belly even if there were more than one baby. . Gas and intestinal bloating is a much more likely cause. ...Read more

Last year had 5 miscarriages and 1 ectopic. Just found out I'm 3 weeks pregnant, would you recommend 3 months bed rest until I'm in 2nd trimester?

Last year had 5 miscarriages and 1 ectopic. Just found out I'm 3 weeks pregnant, would you recommend 3 months bed rest until I'm in 2nd trimester?

See your doctor: You need to be seeing a maternal fetal medicine specialist. These are the doctors who specialize in high risk pregnancies. Whether bed rest will help depends in art on what caused the miscarriages. It will not help with preventing ectopics which are usually caused by scarring of the Fallopian tubes. One ectopic does increase the risk of another. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Do the ultra sound add 2 weeks to determine a due date? It says i'm 12 weeks pregnant did i conieve 12 weeks ago?

Do the ultra sound add 2 weeks to determine a due date? It says i'm 12 weeks pregnant did i conieve 12 weeks ago?

Menstrual age vs ...: Gestational age. You need to know what someone means by 12 weeks pregnant - menstrual age or gestational age. Before ultrasound, everything was based on number of weeks since the first day of the last menses. That is the menstrual age of the pregnancy. Most women become pregnant 2 weeks after their last menses, which is the gestational age, or the actual time (weeks) since conception. ...Read more

Can twins cause an early false pregnancy test I mean like at 2 or 3 weeks after ivf?

Pregnancy test: If you had a retrieval 2 - 3 weeks ago and the test is positive, the test isn't early and you are pregnant. Still, the pregnancy may not continue so your doctor may continue to monitor the levels to see if they are going up appropriately. Then, a sonogram will confirm the pregnancy. Still, you can miscarry so you should follow your doctor's instructions. ...Read more

Had a medical abortion at 14 weeks. 3 weeks after , 2 hpt were negative. However, i feel "gassy" stomach. Baby kicking? Possible continued preg?

Shouldn't be: A termination that late may result in retained products (placenta) and that might cause cramping and bleeding, but its more likely the sensation you are feeling is the gas. Bowel gas can feel like butterfly flicking like early pregnancy. Try some gas X or simethicone. ...Read more

My scan date says 7 weeks 3 days does that mean conception occurred 5 weeks 3 days ago if your LMP was not known do they measure the sac?

My scan date says 7 weeks 3 days does that mean conception occurred 5 weeks 3 days ago if your LMP was not known do they measure the sac?

Exactly!: You are correct. The extra 2 weeks are added because of an old convention, and we date the pregnancy by "menstrual weeks". Full term = 40 weeks from lmp. We always use your menstrual age (even if we don't know your lmp) and we never really talk about fetal age (time since conception). I wish we could change this convention, it's confusing! by the way, there is a 4-7 day margin of error w that date. ...Read more

My sonogram says 6 weeks, 3 days, on july 19, 2012, it dated conception to june 18, or 19, i think i got pregnant june 9 or 10. Is this possible?

My sonogram says 6 weeks, 3 days, on july 19, 2012, it dated conception to june 18, or 19, i think i got pregnant june 9 or 10.  Is  this possible?

Doubt it: It's always tricky working backwards, but a 1st trimester ultrasound (if done correctly) should be accurate to within one week, or +/- 3-4 days. I personally believe they are accurate to within a day or two. The conflict in dates you give is almost 10 days, that's hard to explain unless the sono is poor quality. ...Read more

Lmp12/23-27 dd 9/19 conception cannot b 12/26 while on my period if i'm 27 weeks 2 days could I have conceived 2 weeks before my lmp?

Without looking at..: Without looking at the dates, the usual thing that happens is a woman either gets pregnant 2 weeks before her period starts, or 2 weeks after her period starts (as most cycles are 4 weeks, with ovulation at mid-cycle). If an ultrasound dating scan gave a gestational age estimate, it is very unlikely that the estimate could be 4 weeks off. "conceived 2 wks before my lmp" would mean a 4 week error. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant 2 or 3 weeks after your period? And my period lasts for 4 days

Yes..: Ovulation happens more or less around that time in most women depending on your cycle length( 21-35 days normally), so it is possible to get pregnant around that time. ...Read more
