Mums Lounge Due Date Calculator.
So, you’ve weed on a stick and seen the two red lines, huh?
The second thing many of us do after confirming the news (the first thing being jumping up and down, bursting into tears, or weeing on another stick just to be sure) is try to work out when we can expect to meet our offspring.
Estimated delivery dates are actually based on the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP), not from the day of conception (which although it may sound odd, it actually makes it a lot easier for many of us to remember!)
Due date calculators and medical professionals use your LMP to calculate your estimated delivery date using a 40 week pregnancy as a guage. However, it is important to note that a full term pregnancy is classed anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks.
With this four week margin of error available it is easy to see why less than 5% of babies arrive on their due date!
So, this being said, to avoid stress as your date approaches 9and maybe even passes by) try to view your due date as more of a rough guide, rather than an event to be set in stone. Babies have a knack for knowing when they are physically and developmentally ready and will come in their own good time.
Use our easy to use due date calculator to find out your estimated due date.
