Hi, I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and the pregnancy was unplanned. I have polycystic ovaries syndrome(new diagnosis) so have extremely irregular periods, often missing my period completely for the month. So last missed period gives me no indication as to when I fell pregnant. I am wondering if anyone can give advice as to which date they think is correct.
I had intercourse on December 16th and not again until the 2nd 4th 6th and 7th of January.

Today I am exactly 10weeks as dated by 2 different ultra sounds meaning my pregnancy started on the 22nd December.
I was being investigated for other conditions so was having multiple blood test and captured to exact day my hcg increased. On the 16th of Janurary my hcg was 2.8. On the 18th of January my hcg was 68.4 (two days apart).
I have read articles saying the first two weeks of your pregnancy you arenít actually pregnant but is that only when you measure pregnancy from last missed period not ultra sound?
Also I have ready articles about timing of hcg production leaning towards the later dates being correct but hcg can be different for all pregnancies...

HELP!! Which dates add up?

I'd say conception happened sometime in that first week of January. At the point of conception, you are already considered 2 weeks pregnant, based on dating conventions. It's hard (or impossible) to say exactly which day, because even after conception, it's hard to say exactly how long it takes to actually implant (different for everyone and every pregnancy), and from that point, HCG starts increasing. But sometime in the timeframe of Jan 2nd -7th makes the most sense based on dates. Congrats, by the way!
