With the way they count with pregnancy, "6 weeks" is counted from the first day of your last menstrual period. So you might have conceived 4 weeks ago, but by a doctor's standards you are still technically "6 weeks along" as that is just how they measure it. I always thought that was weird but that's how they do it. I agree with the other poster, it's really important to go for the follow up, but it seems like you are having more luck with the medications than I did. Hope you get back to feeling normal soon.

Thank you i appreciate it an def goin back to my follow up at the end of the month...

the ultrasound tells you how far you are. If it says 6 weeks, you were six weeks.

Definitely don't skip the follow up appointment that's required with the pill because there's a chance that you might not have expelled the fetus. That's why I personally chose the surgical procedure. it was guaranteed

Couldnt of been six weeks i had intercourse 10 11.. b4 that the last time was in may trust me babe i kno
