Calculate your pregnancy due date with this medically exact due date calculator. Find out when your baby is due. This pregnancy due date calculator helps in the calculation of the accurate pregnancy due date which is among the most important steps in pregnancy.
Calculation of the best estimated due date (EDD) is based on the day of the date of ovulation and fertilization. The EDD can then be calculated by adding 266 days to the day of ovulation/fertilization.
If you don't know the exact date of ovulation, then your due date can be calculated by adding 40 weeks (280 days) to the approximate first day of your last menstrual period in a 28-day cycle. If your cycles are longer or shorter than 28 days, then the day of ovulation may change and this calculator takes that into condideration when calculating the EDD.
