if i am not mistaken, they go by your last menstral cycle to determine the due date.
but you should know, that after testing on like a home pregnancy test when it comes out positive, you are usually about 4 weeks pregnant already at that time.
and if you did an online concieving calander and it said your 6 weeks, that is pretty much as accurate as what a doctor told you when he or she said you are 5-6 weeks.
also the date of conception is just an estimated calculation. because they go by your last period.

no they add on 4 weeks because you dont get pregnant right after you have sex. you have to wait a few weeks to get a positive test. then they calculate the due date. so 5-6 weeks sounds right to me.

that sounds about right u should listen to what the doctor says and u should have a ultrasound that will be more accurate with your due date my doctors were a week and a a half off until my first utrasound but my due date changed agian at 20 weeks so based on what the doctor does it could change 2 or 3 times lol
