Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Pregnancy is counted from the first day of your last period. Conception happens about two weeks after that if you have a normal 28 day cycle. So that would put conception around Nov 13.Good luck :)
The way that pregnacy is calculated is not accurate.  They use the first day of your last period only because they assume that people don't know when they conceived.  You know your body best.  If you really don't know when you conceived, then your ultrasounds help determine the developmental age of your little one.  In your second trimester the measurement from the your pubic bone to the top of your uterus is also used to determine how far along you are. Try not to focus on it and just enjoy your pregnancy.
