  • I am 17 weeks and 4 days pregnant. I cant figure when i conceived. In septeber I had my period 9-2-12 it stopped on 9-9-12 i was on birthcontrol pills. i decided i didnt want to take the pill anymore i am 32 and have been taking them since i was 16. so On 9-17-12 i stopped my pills. i started my second period that month on 9-20-12 and it stopped on 9-25-12 i found out 5 weeks after that, i was pregnant. so how do i figure out when i conceived.

    to The Baby Corner. So if you're 17w4d today (1/16/13), then you're estimated due date is June 22. This puts your date of conception around September 29. If you stopped taking the Pill on 9/17, you likely ovulated within a 2-week window after that. The "period" you experienced after that was most likely breakthrough bleeding related to stopping the Pill and not a true period because if it were a true period, your body wouldn't have had enough time to rebuild enough lining for your little one to attach to in that time frame. So it sounds like it was breakthrough bleeding related to the hormonal shifts due to stopping the Pill.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy and well wishes for a smooth pregnancy and delivery!
