    Yes, you are right. Your body doesn't start producing HCG hormone (the hormone that makes a test positive) until the fertilized egg has implanted.

    Don't worry about it, alot of the pregnancy books are based on women with text book cycles so they are often inaccurate.

    I like the BBC calender as it gives you some detail everyday about how your baby is developing http://www.bbc.co.uk/parenting/pregnancy_calendar/

    Are you counting 3 weeks and 6 days from your last period Bowmanzoo, or from conception? xx

    Ok, well you probably ovulated early or something - baby must be a strong one to be detected so early :D

    It would make sense that you either ovulated earlier than average and/or the fertilized egg implanted quicker than average. This would explain why some books place you as being further behind than you really are.

    Don't worry about it, as I said, most of these books assume a standard 28 day cycle with ovulation on day 14.
