A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Possibly you might have conceived after your last menstrual period during the period of ovulation.
Usually gestational age is calculated from last menstrual period.
According to your last menstrual period November 10th, your gestational age should be 6 weeks 4 days for today i.e. December 25th, which is corresponding to your history.
Take care.
