Well we can't let that happen before time, but we surely can help you to know how long you'll have to wait. Use the simple and easy-to-use due date calculator given below and know when your baby will make its grand debut!

First Day Of Your Last Period

Calculating your expected due date (EDD) through the first day of your last menstrual cycle is extremely common. It shouldn't come as a surprise as it is by far the easiest due date calculation technique - no hard mathematics skills required here! 

The first step is to identify the first day of your last period. Once you are sure about the date, there are two ways to identify your EDD. One option requires you to simply add 280 days to this date since most pregnancies last for 40 weeks on average. 1

For the second option, you need to count back 3 months from the first day of your last period. Add 1 year & 7 days to this new date, and there you go, you have an estimated idea about when your bundle of joy will be delivered! 1

Conception Date

Your date of conception can be an excellent indicator for your due date calculation! If you have been keeping track of your ovulation symptoms or using ovulation test strips, then you can use your conception date to find your expected due date easily. This technique requires you to add 266 days to the possible date you conceived the pregnancy. 1

This method is also useful for women who have opted for IVF (In-vitro fertilization). If you have undergone an embryo transfer 3 days after egg retrieval & fertilization, then add 263 days to your transfer date. If you had an embryo transfer after 5 days, then add 261. 1

Ultrasound

If you are bad at remembering dates, an ultrasound can be the best way to calculate your due date! Most women undergo an ultrasound during their prenatal appointments that can help them get a rough idea on their estimated delivery date.

This is often done through tracking your pregnancy milestones like your baby's first heartbeat or first fetal movement! Your fundal height (measurement from the pubic bone to the top of the uterus), checked by your doctor on every visit, can also confirm your estimated delivery date. 1

The Date Is Worth The Wait!

Expected due date calculator is a great way to be prepared for the arrival of your baby. However, one should note that this date is just an estimate. It is not a confirmation that your baby will arrive on the same day because only 4%2 babies do! Does this mean it's not useful? Of course, it is! Having a rough idea about when your baby can be born will help you plan things properly and on time. 

And out of all the things you need to plan, banking your little one's cord blood stem cells is the most important! Your baby is born with powerful stem cells that can protect him/her and your entire family from the impact of many medical conditions. Unfortunately, these stem cells can only be preserved at the time of birth! So make sure you contact LifeCell today and don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
