Your pregnancy and baby guide
Congratulations, you’re pregnant! Now, when will your new baby arrive?
A due date gives you an idea of when you’re most likely to give birth. The first step is knowing how to calculate your due date. This is calculated by adding 280 days to the first day of your last menstrual period. Note that your period and ovulation are counted as the first two weeks of pregnancy. Our Mom2B calculator will quickly work out your estimated due date, tailoring it accordingly for longer, shorter, and average cycle lengths.
Remember, your due date can change. There are other factors at play that will determine your due date, like your doctor changing your date due to the progress of your pregnancy, making your full-term pregnancy be anywhere from 37 and 42 weeks.
HOW TO USE THE MOM2B DUE DATE CALCULATOR
- Determine how long your average menstrual cycle is, then figure out when was the first day of your last cycle.
- Enter the dates accordingly
- Press the enter and you’ll be able to tell how soon to expect your little one
- You can recalculate again if you feel like you’ve made a mistake
SO WHAT’S THE NEXT?
Start off by visiting your doctor who will physically examine you and run tests to confirm your pregnancy. Your first prenatal care visit is usually the longest one. You’ll talk with your doctor about your medical history, the other parent’s medical history, and your family’s medical history.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered during pregnancy, many of which are highly dependent on the individual’s situation, such as medication, weight gain, exercise and nutrition.
During your follow-up prenatal care visits, your doctor, nurse, or midwife will examine you to make sure your pregnancy is developing well, and that you and the fetus are healthy.
These prenatal checkups are a great time to talk about any questions or concerns that have come up since your last visit.
Best wishes for your pregnancy and beyond…
