Everything in pregnancy depends on what your exact due date is and how many weeks along the pregnancy has come. Your pregnancy due date is calculated by adding 266 days (38 weeks) to your ovulation and fertilization date or 280 days to the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP). babyMed has the most precise pregnancy conception calculator.
