Doctors determine how far along you are by the first day of your last menstrual period. If you can remember the first day of your last menstrual period, then start to count from then to now. If you don't remember the first day of your last menstrual period, then you should get an ultrasound done and they will tell you. It's good to get ultrasounds done early in your pregnancy.
