I missed my period last month (jan 5th) and I had done 3 pregnancy tests but about 4 days + after my period was due. This month I have done a pregnancy test and turns out I am pregnant!

So I am now confused as to when I conceived? confused
Does anyone have any ideas?!

You GP/Midwife will work it out from tge first day of your last period (December?) Until the 12 week scan confirms.

Right so hopefully the midwife will know!

When was your last period/first day of bleeding? Guessing around 7th dec???
You will be approx 8 weeks.... Date it yourself from that first day bleeding, thats all you can go by until 12 week scan

Your MW will only be able to guess, until the scan.

Yeah because in December I had a full normal period then in jan I only had a slight bleed and that was just the once when I went to the loo but that was it!it! I just didn't know whether I did the pregnancy tests too late so the hormone didn't show up? This month I tested the day I was due and it came up positive straight away.

I would still go off your december date and class the january 'spot' at implantation bleed... Often ladies get a bit of spotting when there period was due... With my first i had a 3 day bleed.
For the sake of dating your pregnancy the MW is very likely to count from the first day in december.

You prob just got a false neg when you first tested as hormones hadnt built up enough (it took me until 2 weeks after period was due in my last 3 pregnancies) some tests are more sensitive than others
