Your pregnancy and baby guide
So you have just found out that you are pregnant! Congratulations! This is a very exciting time and we are sure that you would love to have an idea of when your baby will arrive.
Mom2B is here to help you to calculate the estimated date of your baby’s arrival. Your due date is calculated by adding 280 days to the first day of your last menstrual period. Note that your period and ovulation are counted as part of the first two weeks of your pregnancy. Our Mom2B calculator will quickly work out your estimated due date and tailor it based on your longer, shorter or average cycle lengths.
Remember, your due date can change based on other factors. Your doctor may change your date depending on the progress of your pregnancy. Keep in mind that your full-term pregnancy can 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 the first day of your last cycle was.
- Enter the dates accordingly
- Press the enter button and you’ll be able to tell how soon to expect your little one
- You can recalculate at any time if you feel like you’ve made a mistake and want to change the information you provided
SO WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?
Visit your doctor for a physical examination and test 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 father’s and your family’s medical history.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered during your pregnancy, many of which are highly dependent on your individual situation, such as medication you may be taking, your weight, exercise and nutrition.
During your follow-up prenatal care visits, your doctor, nurse, or midwife will examine you to make sure you are having a healthy pregnancy and that your fetus is healthy and developing well.
These prenatal checkups are a great time to talk about any questions or concerns you may have that have come up since your last visit.
Best wishes for your pregnancy. Enjoy the journey!
