Hi I was wondering if at all there is anyway I could have convieved my baby from the sex that took place on May 31st 2014? DD (40 weeks) may10th 2015.

NO: Assuming the due date has been confirmed by a first trimester ultrasound, then the conception date range for a due date of May 10, 2015 is August 18, 2014 plus or minus about a week. It would not be possible to conceive May 31, 2014 with this due date. The due date would have to be close to February 21, 2015 with a conception date of May 31, 2014. ...Read more

Is it possible to have my baby 40 weeks after conception?

Yes: It is possible to have your baby 40 weeks after conception. This is the usual length of a pregnancy, but that time can vary by a week or two and still be considered full term. Take prenatal vitamins with folate (folic acid) and work with your obstetrician to have a safe and healthy pregnancy. Also see the checklists on HealthTap for other advice on a healthy pregnancy. ...Read more

Good luck! ...Read more
