Doctors are scientists, not psychics. Your doctor was making his best guess with what information he had. Chances are the scan provided more detailed information and is more correct. The exact date of conception is nearly impossible to figure out unless the woman can say with certainty.

Can i get a DNA test done when i 3 weeks pregnant?

you can, but it is risky for the baby's sake, i would wait until you are atleast 12 weeks and then have a Aminocentesis at your local hospital (ask your doctor!) you MIGHT be able to tell from that, but it will not be bullet-proof! the BEST way is to wait until the baby is born and then carry a DNA test out.

If a scan showed you were 28 weeks pregnant but when you went to the hospital they said you felt 30-32 weeks pregnant could the scan prediction be wrong?

Ultrasound predictions of how far along someone is get worse and worse the longer the person is pregnant. An ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant could be 2 weeks off (either more or less); by the end of pregnancy, they can be as many as three weeks off. The best ultrasounds to get to predict due dates are those done in the first trimester (first three months). In this case, having an ultrasound predicting 28 weeks pregnant and a physician predicting 30 could be about the same thing. "Feeling" 30-32 weeks pregnant also isn't the best predictor either, as different physicians and nurses may estimate differently. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

Ultrasound done 2 days ago the day you period was to start because you were having abnormal abdominal pain and they did not mention that you were pregnant Could you still be pregnant?

When you go to the hospital to have an ultrasound done no matter the case, they are not able to tell you anything about the ultrasound. (The technician) When you are seen afterward by the doctor or nurse or by the time of discharge they would absolutely tell you if you were pregnant, as well as how far along you are. So to answer your question if they didn't mention it, it is because you are not pregnant. You might not see a pregnancy until your hcg is at certain level. However, I would assume they would have done blood work and possibly a pregnancy test.
