That’s a hot mess! I would assume 4 weeks, unless you’re super nauseous/sick.

Maybe you’ll get an awesome surprise at your first ultrasound!

I did!!! I only tested because I was feeling sick & getting sick after eating dairy. Started thinking there’s no way I can only be 4weeks & be so sick. Then remembered this weird period I had the month before. It was a longish period for me & was mostly brown & dark burgundy.  Did have a red day or two. When I called my ob & told them this they scheduled an appointment right away. For the ultrasound they did have me wait until I’d be at least 8weeks with the closer date just to be sure. When I went in for my ultrasound I was 12wks 5days!!! Jumped a whole month. Unfortunately there’s no way to know until you have an ultrasound. Maybe you can try to get in at 8weeks.  Congrats! & good luck!

@Jennifferq:  I’m not sure if HCG levels will be an accurate predictor of how far along you are, the numbers can vary so widely. My numbers last week were 142 and I would be (conservatively) 16dpo, I have ready others who were the same dpo and their numbers were in the 1000s. I think the only accurate way is to go for a dating ultrasound. 

However, I would reckon that if you’re only getting sore boobs now, then it is probably more likely you are 4 weeks along. I’m just over 5 weeks and my sore boobs kicked in earlier this week.

@Jennifferq:  Oh gosh I honestly have no idea which scenario you would be but either way there’s a baby growing in there!! Congrats! Hopefully you can get a dating ultrasound soon and let us know!

You definitely need to tell your doctor and they should see you pretty soon. There are several reasons for what you are going through, some are perfectly fine and others are rather scary. Your doctor should have a nurse number instead of the front desk. Call them and tell them whats going on. They will get you in.
