so, i had a period on 14th april, then during may 2017 i was experiencing very early pregnancy symptoms e.g stomach hardening , sickness.. i had a period on 18th may which lasted around 4 days i think (my periods arent too regular and this seemed like a normal one maybe a bit lighter and less time im not too sure)...that was my last period and ive done a pregnancy test on 28th june and its positive, im definately pregnant i just cant figure out how far.

since about 2 weeks before my period in may i was having symptoms and was certain i was pregnant, i now have all major symptoms and theyve been strong for a week or more. i even have a small bump!

is it more likely that im 6 weeks pregnant (so from my last period) or 11 weeks (and had a period?)

ive been pregnant before and im trying to compare my bump to old pictures but its not helping much...

any help?!

The best thing to do would be to speak to your GP and see if they can refer you for a scan. No way of knowing otherwise!

They aren't massively accurate but maybe take a clear blue digital which can give you a rough idea in weeks?

Then as suggested above, book in with your GP / Midwife directly if you can and they will probably refer you for a scan.

Your due date will be calculated according to your scan measurement anyway so get yourself seen by a midwife asap.

I'd arrange a booking in appointment with your midwife as soon as possible. Explain to her the situation and she'll likely want a scan soon to confirm dates.

I also have irregular periods and with my first my dates were 4 weeks out between the period date and the scan date - they'll want to clear that up quickly!

I was very similar to you! They counted my last bleed (hardly anything for two days) as my last period because they weren't sure. Hope that helps!

My LMP was 13th April and I'm 11 weeks so if you think your May period could have been implantation, you could be 11 weeks too! Get an appt with midwife asap!

I had the same because I was BFing and didn't know I was pregnant until I was quite far along as my periods hadn't come back yet. GP sent me for a dating scan within 3 days.

Thanks again for all the comments :) so desperate to find out how far I am and I can't get to the midwife till next week!! X
