Remember that the normal range of time between conception and birth can vary from 37 weeks to 42 weeks, depending on the length of your menstrual cycle and the date of your last period.

This myDr calculator uses the method used by doctors, where the baby's due date is 280 days from the first day of your last period.

Ultrasound scanning can provide a more accurate determination of your baby's due date, which is especially helpful for women with irregular cycles and those who are not sure of the date of their last period.

What to do next

You can track your baby's development in the womb, find out about healthy eating during pregnancy, and tests you can have during pregnancy. The myDr Babies & Pregnancy Centre has information on all topics for new and expectant parents.
