in Pregnancy Period General by anonymous
How can I accurately determine my gestational age if I don't have a record of my last menstruation date? Additionally, I experienced one instance of spotting at around 6 weeks, but it never recurred. Can you explain why this happened?

Determining gestational age without a record of the last menstruation date can be challenging, but there are alternative methods available. Your healthcare provider may use ultrasound measurements or other indicators to estimate your gestational age. As for the one-time spotting at 6 weeks, it could be due to various factors such as implantation bleeding or cervical irritation. However, it's best to consult with your doctor for a proper evaluation and clarification.

You will get general blood test at your first obgyn visit and usually an ultra sound. By the hirmone levels in your blood and the measurements of the baby in the sonogram and seeing which organs are developed they will be able to give you a very accurate due date.
