How you can find your due date easily with a pregnancy due date calculator

Kudos! You are pregnant; you have conceived and are overjoyed. This is that time when you are all over the moon in the anticipation of the arrival of a new born into your life. With the help of pregnancy week by week pictures you can figure out the various stages in the growth cycle of the little one. But you cannot ignore the pregnancy day’s calculator as the nearest arrival date of your baby is figured out. How this work is still a wonder but it is more of less accurate.

To calculate the due date you would need to go by the last date of your menstrual cycle. Here the first date of the last menstrual cycle is arrived in order to derive the exact date of delivery. To this you go on to add 280 days and this is on the basis that a pregnant woman would have ovulated 14 days from the last date of last menstrual cycle. This is working on the estimation that the conception would have taken place on the same date as well. In hindsight the net result stands at 266 days of gestation and then you go on to add 14 days on to it.

This is all ok for a woman who does fall in the 28 day monthly cycle but for all those who do not fall into the 28 day cycle the results are not going to be satisfactory. Any pregnancy calculator and this is even the week by week guide is going to provide you with a rough due date about your pregnancy as the delivery could occur a few days before or after the delivery as well. The whole objective is to prepare yourself in such a way that you can take care of the baby in the best possible way.

There is another method in order to calculate the due date that is the Naegle’s rule where you turn back the clock to 3 months back from the first date of your last menstrual cycle and then go on to add 7 days  on to it. The date that arrives from this calculation happens to be the due date. You can also arrive at the due date by comparing the basal body temperature along with LH. If there is a rise in the levels of BBT you can find figure out the ovulation date along with the rise in LH and then you go on to add 266 days to it so that the exact due date is arrived at. You cannot confer the fact that this method works out to be full proof as monitoring of LH BMT is difficult and for this reason only an appropriate date could be found out.

With the aid of ultrasound you can find out the age of the baby in the womb. This makes it easier to find out the due date. Another method would be to go for the pregnancy gender test.
