Pregnancy Due Date
When you come to know that you are pregnant you start with guessing various things like whether you will have baby boy or girl, whether you will have normal delivery or cesarean delivery, and also about the due date pregnancy. Though the due date of the pregnancy is calculate by various formulas, there is no surety about the due date. No one, not even your doctor can give assurance that this is the fix date and you will deliver on this date. It is very exciting to calculate the due date and verify how accurately you have calculated the due date of your pregnancy.
There are various ways to calculate the due date pregnancy. The methods of calculating the due date vary from country to country and there are different methods in different cultures too. In some cases the due date is calculated with simple formula and that is adding 40 weeks from the first day of your last period and then subtracting two weeks from it is believed to be the due date of pregnancy. While in some country the method of calculating the due date is quite different. They take the first day of the last period and subtract three months from it and then add seven days to it to get the due date of the pregnancy.
Online there are various fun methods available with which you can calculate the due date of your pregnancy. There is no guarantee that this date will be accurate but you can try them just as an entertainment. Your doctor can also give you due date based on the ultrasound reports and based on the development of the fetus. The date given by the doctor is near to the accurate date, as the due date is based on the ultrasound reports. It is highly possible that the due date pregnancy can be one week before the due date mentioned by your doctor or it can be even one week later than the due date given by doctor.
There are various due date pregnancy calculators that will come to your aid to know the due date. These calculators are in no way assured way to know the due date but still you can use them and have fun with the results. You will at least get a vague idea about the due date.
