Yes, when predicting the length of a pregnancy, it's counted from conception, which is when the fertilized egg implanted in the uterus. This is anywhere from 1 to 7 days after intercourse, assuming this lines up with ovulation.

Yes, Conception is the formation of a viable zygote by the union of the male sperm and female ovum; fertilization.

it means the day you actually got pregnant, other words the day you and your partner had sex which made you pregnant. if your not sure with this you will find out how old your baby actually is at your first scan when they measure the baby's length of body. when you find out the age of your baby, you can count back the days.

Yes, you can. When I was pregnant with my son, I knew I was pregnant the day after conception because my breasts were very sore from conception until the 2nd trimester.

well conception is the day that the sperm met the egg so by that definition u are pregnant if sperm and egg have met. but at the same time if it does not implant into the uterus then u would miscarry

Yes, you can. I actually had a period for several months even though I was pregnant. I kept thinking, man I am working out every day, why am I getting fat! Sure enough, I was 4 months pregnant!
