Q&A: I want to know exactly what date I conceived my baby.
I've been told that my due date was 10/24, 10/27 and the latest ultrasound said 10/22. As far as any of these dates are concerned, when did I actually concieve. the 1st day of my last menstrual cycle was 1/17/03 and it lasted approximately 5 days. I am really anxious to know what my conception date range would be. Please answer.
All of these due dates fall within a week of each other. And since the exact date of ovulation depends on when the NEXT period would be, not the previous one, you’re never going to be able to exactly pinpoint the magic moment of conception. The only consistency in a cycle is that you menstruate 14 days after ovulation, but when you ovulate after menstruation is variable. It’s an unfunny joke the body plays on us that you can only know when you ovulated by a NEXT period, but if you conceive, there is no next period to compute backwards from. This is why your exact conception can’t be more exact than within one week. This is, unless of course, you only had intercourse once in a one-week range or so. If not, the confusion will remain.
