Whats my due date?

Normally, your due date is 280 days (40 weeks or about 10 months — also known as 10 lunar months) from the first day of your last period. However, if your periods are not regular or are not 28 days apart, your due date may be different from the “280-day rule.”

What you should know about your due date? Your due date is calculated by adding 280 days (40 weeks) to the first day of your last menstrual period (assuming a 28 day cycle). Note that your menstrual period and ovulation are counted as the first two weeks of pregnancy. If you deliver on your due date, your baby is actually only 38 weeks old, not 40.

What does your due date really mean? Your due date is one of the first things calculated in your prenatal care. The due date is something that will help guide both you and your practitioner for gestational age-appropriate prenatal care, testing and ultimately your baby’s birth.

How do doctors calculate and determine your due date? Most doctors calculate a due date by adding 40 weeks to the first day of your last period. The actual day of conception might be later, so most babies are born within 2 weeks of the due date.

What happens when you pass the due date? As you pass your due date, the placenta may not work as well as before. This could lessen the amount of oxygen and nutrients that the baby gets from you. As a result, the baby: May not grow as well as before. May show signs of fetal stress.
