    Due date calculator

     

    So, when are you due? It depends on the conception date—but since that’s tough to tell, here’s how to calculate your baby’s expected birthday!

    A helpful tool for parents-to-be

    One of the first things most newly expecting parents want to know is when the baby’s due. Of course, the standard answer is 40 weeks, but like with most pregnancy-related things, nothing’s standard. For example, when you find out you’re pregnant, you might already be five weeks along. This represents a 12.5% swing and could be the difference between a Labour Day and Thanksgiving baby.

    By factoring in your particular ovulation cycle and the first day of your last period, this due date calculator can give you an estimation of when you should expect to have your baby. Of course, your baby might have something to say about that, but only time will tell.

     

    Two practical reasons to use this pregnancy due date calculator

     

    Logistics

    Knowing roughly when your baby will come will give you the starting point of a workback schedule. Things to consider include when to prepare the nursery, when to let your employer know and when your partner could/should consider taking their parental leave. A due date calculator can be a helpful planning tool for you, your partner and your family.

     

    Development tracking

    When you know your general due date, you can work backwards to figure out what’s happening in your belly week to week. At around six weeks, for example, your baby’s heart has started beating. Eight weeks will mark the beginning of your baby’s face forming. And by 12 weeks, the baby will have ten little fingers and ten little toes. Find out what else you can expect over the next three months and six months, and tips to manage the final weeks of your pregnancy.

    Baby naming

    Finding the right name can be stressful for soon-to-be parents, so having inspiration to draw from can only help. A common source of inspiration is baby’s birth month. Some people go with a birth stone or a derivative thereof. Others like to name their baby after a famous person born in that month. And some choose the month itself. April, May and June are common, and January and August are starting to gain popularity.

     

    Astrology

    If you believe in the power of astrological pre-determinism, having a rough idea of where on the starry chart your baby will be could impact the discussions you have with your partner about how you’ll approach raising them. If the due date calculator puts you on the bubble between two signs, you can account for both in your discussions.
