Would pregnancy be noticeable seven weeks after conception? No signs. Just an irregular on time period.

Would pregnancy be noticeable seven weeks after conception? No signs. Just an irregular on time period.

Done a clear blue pregnancy test 5days ago said positive with 2-3 weeks conception date.Done another this morning first sample now says1-2 weeks? Hcg

Biochemical Pregnanc: If the test was positive and now lower, it is likely you had a biochemical pregnancy. This may mean that the pregnancy was not normal and would not result in you having a baby. Your body eliminated the tissue. This happens more often than we realize. Still, if it happens to you on more than 2 occasions, it suggests that there may be something else going on and you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more

When is pregnancy calculated first day of last period or conception because my LMP is 9-8 40 weeks from that would give me a due date of 6/15?

40 weeks from LMP: 40 complete weeks from the first day of the last normal mentrual period. With uncertain lmp, dating is by ultrasound, but if within 1 week to lmp, then menstrual dating is still used. Obstetrical dating is never based on conception, even with ivf pregnancies. ...Read more

When 1st trimester ultrasounds date pregnancy how do they base the gestational age? Do they assume conception occured on cd14?

When 1st trimester ultrasounds date pregnancy how do they base the gestational age? Do they assume conception occured on cd14?

US: First trimester ultrasound is based on biometric measurements only, the embryonic crown-rump length, which is extremely reliable when done by a skilled sonographer. No assumptiosn need be made at all. The ega is however reported correctly, by convention, from the first day of a hypotehtical last menstrual period; so in that regard it 'assumes' conception on cd 14. ...Read more
