I am 15 weeks pregnant and been confused since my 12 week scan. The dates the scan gave me said the baby was measuring 11 weeks 3 days but my period started 3 days before that. Then that would make out that me and my husband conceived the night of our wedding 2 weeks later bt we never had sex that night we did the next morning and a lot on honeymoon. I am so confused as i dont think the dates are correct

It's purely on the growth of the baby. My dates changed twice with my first at both my scans - she arrived 10 days early at a normal healthy 7lb 2oz. As it stands my conception date is 2 or 3 days before I know 100% I ovulated So its impossible i conceived then. your due date is just an estimate so I wouldn't worry. Only 5% of babies arrive on their edd. also sperm can live for up to 7 days inside you so you don't necessarily conceive on the night you have sex. It can take a good few hours (think I read as much as up to 10+ hours) for them to get to where the egg is anyway. Just relax and enjoy being pregnant, you only have a first time once you should enjoy it, it's not as fun 2nd time round lol x
