Don' t kknow if im on correct forum bbut on the 8th of march I was 2-3 weeks pregnant on a clearblue digital I slept with one guy the 30th of January got back with my oh and slept with him the 14th of Feb I ccan't remember my lmp who would more likely be the dad to this little one ì got my ovulation dates wrote down for Jan which are between 17th and 22nd that's all I know aany ideas?

Pinkheart5915 Sat 12-Mar-16 19:00:28

I'd love to help, but I'm not able to. My baby brain isn't working properly.

I wouldn't rely too much on how many weeks the clear blue said you was.
If you knew your last period date, an online when's my baby due calculator would give you a rough idea of conception.

Heirhelp Sat 12-Mar-16 19:04:26

Clear blue are not accurate at dating. They date from conception so they are suggesting you conceived between the 2nd and9th feb. From these dates you can't really tell.

Heirhelp Sat 12-Mar-16 19:06:15

An online conception calculator would only tell you when somebody with a typical 28 day cycle would have probably conceived. Even if you have a typical 28 day cycle, when you ovulate within your cycle may not be typical.

Oh dear flowers

Sophia1984 Sat 12-Mar-16 19:09:37

So the Clearblue tests actually tell you how long it is since you conceived, not how many weeks pregnant you are (which is calculated from LMP)

If you have a 28 day cycle, your ovulation dates for February would be between 14 - 19 Feburary. If you conceived on the 14th, then it would be just over 3 weeks since you conceived by the time you tested on the 8th. It seems unlikely that you would have ovulated between the 17th-22nd but conceived on the 30th, so I would guess it's your OH. Also, by 8th March, CB would be showing 3+ weeks since conception in January.

You might end up needing a Dna test. Does your oh know there may be some confusion over who's the dad?

Lweji Sat 12-Mar-16 19:12:08

When was your last period?

Lweji Sat 12-Mar-16 19:15:08

Ups, should have read the OP better.

If your ovulation dates were 17th-22nd January, it's more likely that you'd have got pregnant by sex on the 14th. That would mean your OH.
Assuming you did get a period early in February.

meatliqour Sat 12-Mar-16 19:15:53

I had this problem. Only a DNA test will put your mind at rest

Lweji Sat 12-Mar-16 19:17:08

The clearblue dates would give 14th of February to the 21st, roughly, as well.

lminch1990 Sat 12-Mar-16 20:03:44

I do think I had a period first week in febuary but with all the worry I've totally forgotten sad I did a test aswell about the 2nd or 3rd week of Feb and it was negative but on the 8th of march was positive, I also have my ovulation dates written down for Feb which was between 12 - 17th surely I wouldn't of known these if I hadn't of had a period in Feb I think I'm just being paranoid I've booked in for a reassurance scan for when I'm 8 weeks to see if that will help my mind x

SoupDragon Sat 12-Mar-16 20:11:17

Can you think of anything specific you did in the first week of Feb and then think about whether you had to faff about with tampons due to your period?

lminch1990 Sat 12-Mar-16 20:13:29

I cnt no but this might sound nasty but i looked in bathroom bin as have a big one dnt empty every week so to say and their was sanitary towels in their which i know I wouldn't of kept since January i would of emptied it but the negative preg test and towels were in their so I'm sure they were from Feb (ps I've emptied now lol)

mrschatty Sat 12-Mar-16 20:19:36

From (my basic and rough) calculations I would say the Feb DTD so your OH but you'll never know without a test...congratulations and all the bestflowers

lminch1990 Sat 12-Mar-16 20:19:48

Also clear blue would of said 3+ for Jan guy and my period would of had to of been.. at least 2 weeks prior to having se x with him to be able to concieve with him so doctor would of been saying at least 10 weeks pregnant if going by my January one wouldn't they? Assuming I didn't have a Feb one it just doesn't add up but I'm Still over thinking

lminch1990 Sat 12-Mar-16 20:43:12

Thank you everyone for your speedy replies I do think I'm being a little paranoid and it is the guys from the 14th just nice tohave second opinions x

Casmama Sat 12-Mar-16 20:50:46

Almost certainly your oh except for the fact you took a test in the second week of Feb- strange if you had just had your period. Did you use contraception with either?

CrazyMary Sat 12-Mar-16 21:00:12

You need to add 2 weeks to the cb test results (2-3 + 2weeks =estimate 4-5 weeks pregnant).
8th March - 1 week = 1st March (5 weeks pregnant)
1st March - 1 week = 23rd February (4 weeks pregnant)
23rd February - 1 week = 16th February (3 weeks pregnant)
16th February -1 week = 9th February (2 weeks pregnant)
9th February -1 week = 2nd February (If the test is correct, this (2nd Feb) is probably about the time of your last period, which would indicate you probably conceived about 2 weeks later (16th February) meaning your oh is the father. A dating scan before 12 weeks is probably most accurate to detect exactly how many weeks/days you are.

CrazyMary Sat 12-Mar-16 21:04:02

The results are based on hormone levels (level expected if pregnant since conception). I'm not sure how accurate the time guideline is, but your dates look good smile

TattieHowkerz Sun 13-Mar-16 09:52:10

Seems likely to be your OH but your scan at 8 weeks should be able to give you a reliable date.

lminch1990 Sun 13-Mar-16 11:02:15

Thank you for your replies everyone x

lminch1990 Sun 13-Mar-16 11:49:42

I use contraception with the first but it broke :/ typical ! Also I think I remember the test I took was after the sex on the 14th but think it was to early to test but surely it would shown positive for the one on the 30th of it was him ? Thanku crazy Mary that was helpful smile xx

CrazyMary Mon 14-Mar-16 01:31:42

I think the cb show up up to 3/4 days before period is due, if you dtd the test 16+ days after dtd on 30th and it was negative, there is a better chance you got pregnant on or around the 14th Feb. Conception takes about 2 weeks to show up on a test so try not to worry too much. Looks like you're having a November baby!! 💖🎅Congratulations smile The Baby Centre do a really cool pregnancy tracking app.

DropYourSword Mon 14-Mar-16 05:53:30

Just remember that when you have your scan and it says that you are, for example, 8 weeks pregnant, that it means you are 8 weeks from the first day of your last period, NOT 8 weeks from conception. That has confused a lot of people!
