Due Date Calculator says I'm 5 weeks 1 day prego but I had sex 3 weeks 5 day ago

    The due date calculator says that I am 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant, but I got married 3 weeks 5 days ago and didn’t try to get pregnant until then. How could I be pregnant before I had sex? I need to know so I can explain it to my mom and dad, lol. They are so proud of me for waiting until I got married and this timing making it seem like I didn’t!

    The due date calculator is an estimate I guess if you had not actually had sex at that point… unless it is an immaculate conception! Congratulations either way :)

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

    How many weeks pregnant you are is calculated starting from the date of your last menstrual period. If you ovulate and conceive on a typical day 14 of your cycle (half-way through) then in a sense you are already 2 weeks pregnant when you conceive. I know it’s confusing. But if you are 5 weeks pregnant, that means you conceived 3 weeks ago, since it counts starting 14 days prior to ovulation.

    One of my sisters (who got married years before I did) had a honeymoon baby and I was also a little surprised when she told me … I think it was 8 weeks after her wedding, she told me she was 10 weeks pregnant. I knew she and her husband said they hadn’t even kissed till their wedding, but she was the one who first explained to me how calculating due dates and weeks of pregnancy work. ;)
