Ok i need help with weeks

Ok here is my story of my life this past few days in short and sweet terms. LOL

Ok i have been calculating my due date as Feb 1st and im 12 will be 13 wks along on thursday.

Well i had to go to a clinic to get a positive preg test fro medicaid, so we went and did it all and the lady there said she would go off my conception since i really kinda dont know when my last period was(since they have been all wierd since i am still nursing my DS) BUt anyways so i tell her my period might have been April 25th. But i know i concieved on May 10th(my DH birthday was the day before so i remember, sorry TMI) so she goes to the little wheel thing that the docs use to calculate due dates and what not. ANd she says im Due Feb 14th and that im 11 wks along. So i argue with her for a little while and then finally say whatever i know im right.

So then today, which is 2 days later from the clinic visit, i go to WIC to do resertification fro my son and tell them im pregnant. So we do all the paperwork and stuff and the lady goes to calculate my due date and asks for LMS, but i tell her i dont kn ow fro sure but know i concieved on May 10th. So she pulls out the wheel thing again and says oh ok well your 14 wks then and will be 15 wks on sunday. And me being the arguementive person i am say no, that cant be ive been calculating almost being 13 wks this thursday. And she says well if you concieved May 10th and she is showing me as she is doing it ont he wheel thing again, and then points to todays Dat aug 6th, then i'd be 14 wks along.

Ok so here i am thinking who is right,

Clinic says im 11 wks
I say im 12wks almost 13 wks
WIC says im 14 wks almost 15 wks

So i am sitting at home now and i have been to many different calculators now and they all say im due Jan 30th and im 14 wks along.

So can i get some help ladies. I am lost and confused and what to know what is what. I thought i was right about all my dates and know i concieved on May 10th. Do i have to change Due Date clubs?? PLease and halp would work thank you

If most of the online calculators are saying 14 weeks, then I'd go with it. I mean, if you use 4 different websites, and they all say 14 weeks, then it's probably close enough.

Don't worry about changing birth clubs if you don't want to. We'd love to keep you.

14 weeks.

My due date is Feb 8 and I was 12w4d at my u/s last Thursday and will be 14 weeks this coming Sunday. You're 1 week ahead of me which puts you at 15 weeks this Sunday.

It depends on how they calculate. Most go by LMS and then add 280 days for baby to "cook" -- although some will go by LMS and then average cycle (like 28 days for some and 32 for others). Really though, it's all averaged out and your "due date" is just a guideline since the babe will come when s/he's ready.

I know when my LMS was, AND when date of conception (or pretty darn close) with LMS midwife calculated Feb 17 as EDD, but when I plug in date of conception, I get Feb 14.
