How far along am I?

After 5 VERY long years of trying, I finally gave up three months ago. And yesterday I found out I was pregnant!
I need help figuring out how far along I am. I am VERY regular, with only one late period a year for the last 5 years. I had a period May 8th, it was 4 days late and it was 4 days long. June 9th, I was 4 days late again, but this time it was only one tampon worth of super light spotting. I chalked it up to: "This is it! I'm drying up!" As of yesterday I would have been 4 days late, if I'm counting that period, so I took a test and it's positive! So... my question is: Is the first day of my last period May 8th and the June 9th spotting is implantation bleeding? Or does the June 9th bleeding count as my last period and I'm only 4 weeks or so?

Good question!

The WebMD Due Date Calendar (located here: http://www.webmd.com/baby/healthtool-due-date-calculator ) says to estimate your due date, enter the date when your last
menstrual period began (the first day).

And congratulations!

I know, but which date would you use? Would you use May 8th because you had a full period? Or would you use June 9th because you bled, even if just a little? Or is that really implantation bleeding? Is the timing even right for that?
