What day did your last period start? Thank you.

Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

You say that you're now 5 weeks 5 days pregnant. Is that from ultrasound dating?

If so, what was the date of the ultrasound?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
im not 100% on my last period timing but I got the ultra sound today
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

And did the ultrasound today say that you are now 5 weeks and 5 days pregnant?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

If you are 5 weeks 5 days today by ultrasound, that means that conception was approximately August 28. In that case, there is no possible way that you are pregnant from sex on August 8.

Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.

When an ultrasound says that you are 5 weeks 5 days, that means that you got pregnant 3 weeks 5 days ago, since by tradition pregnancies are dated from last menstrual period (or computed last menstrual period, as computed by the ultrasound).

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But 5 weeks 5 days ago was August 14 was it not?
