In a general sense: If some one has regular menstrual cycles of approximately 28 days, then gestational age is measured in weeks from the start of the last normal menstrual period.

EGA: The most helpful information would be the date of your last menstrual period and your typical cycle length. But if you want a rough idea then let's assume your usual cycle is 28 days. If so, then your last menstrual period would have been february 28. Based on that you are about 5 weeks pregnant. ...Read more

Congratulations!! : Congratulations! by the information you gave me, you are most likely 3-6 weeks pregnant. By 3 to 4 weeks after conception, pregnancy tests start to become positive and you can see the gestational sac, but not the embryo on ultrasound. By around 6-7 weeks, you start to see the embryo and pick up a heartbeat. Your doctor may have a better idea of how far along you are by measurements of the gestational sac. Ask at your next appointment. Good luck! ...Read more

My ob tells me that my uterus is measuring big for how far along I am with my pregnancy, is that bad?

My ob tells me that my uterus is measuring big for how far along I am with my pregnancy, is that bad?

Maybe: Sometimes being bigger is normal. For instance if you or your husband is above average height, then your baby may be above average for growth as well. Concerns come in when you might have diabetes or some other pregnancy complication that would make the growth abnormal. Speak with your doctor so you understand any risks that you/baby might have. Best wishes for pregnancy! ...Read more

I had 2 positive pregnancy tests 2 weeks after my last period which was a few weeks after mirena (levonorgestrel) removal.  Difficulty determining how far along i am.?

Need ultrasound: Given your history it is difficult to determine your gestational age. The only way to accurately determine it will be by ultrasound. However you are only four weeks out from having your Mirena (levonorgestrel) removed thus i would wait two weeks to have this done. The earliest you can date a pregnancy is 5-6 weeks gestation. If you develop severe abdominal pain obviously be seen sooner. ...Read more
