You just found out you’re expecting, congratulations! Next step is thoroughly scrutinising the internet to find the best pregnancy due date calculator online. You need to know how long you’ll have to wait to finally meet your precious little bundle of joy.
Full term pregnancy is classified normal between 37-42 from the first day of your last period.
A pregnancy due date calculator found online is calculated on a 40-week pregnancy and therefore not entirely accurate. Only 3-5% of babies are born on their proposed due date.
Nonetheless, it is fun and exciting to predict the birthday of your baby with a pregnancy due date calculator in order to prepare for his/her arrival. You might get a due date at your 12weeks scan but this can change as your baby grows.

When using this pregnancy due date calculator, you’ll find that making minor changes to your cycle length and luteal phase, it is able to effect the due date. That is because most of our bodies aren’t primarily based on the averages which standard due date calculators or charts use (that’s similar to a medical doctor or midwife would use). Given that many women don’t understand their cycle length and luteal
phase, you can start to see why it’s referred to as an ‘estimated’ due date.
Unfortunately, when it comes to natural childbirth, it is almost impossible to know exactly when your baby will arrive. No doctor, midwife or pregnancy due date calculator will be able to give you an exact due date. Rest assured that your baby will come when he/she is ready.
