Conception date?

Ok, here goes. I'm pregnant, found out today! Yeah! Now, my last period was March 4th...start date. I skipped the entire month of February, so I'm unsure if I actually conceived in February or January. I know that doctors go back two weeks before the first date of your last period. For me that would be Feb 18th. But again, I skipped the entire month of February. Anyone know how to calculate this accurately?!?! any help would be greatly appreciated. I am EXTREMELY nervous...as I am 38, have been trying to conceive since I was 27 with not much luck. One miscarriage back in 2007 (I was 2 months).

Since you had a period in March, you did not conceive in January or February. If your period in March was a normal one for you, it would be safe to calculate your conception and due date form your March period.

Thank you for your reply. It's difficult to get the conception date down until I get an ultrasound. I can tell you this much, my breasts have been steadily hurting the last 2 1/2 months and I had to buy a few more bras that were one cup up from where I'm used to. My whole family seems to think I did conceive earlier than we thought...lol. I've been moody, my breasts have been tender and swollen, etc. It's just insane. Because of my age, I still believe I'm in perimenopause. I also believed that's the reason why I was having all the symptoms. But anyways...it is what it is. I will say this, I found out with my first child that I had 2 periods before I ever found out I was pregnant. Later, after the ultrasound, I discovered that I was pregnant WHILE having those two periods! :O IT's funny that way...
