Due Date Calculator Unfolding the Date of Your Pregnancy

By Debra Aspinall Subscribe to RSS | April 6th 2012 | Views:

Wouldn’t it be good to know your baby’s birthday in advance? If you could plan ahead and get organised, you’d know how to answer those endless queries “When’s it due?” you could have a neat countdown calendar, you could stay in control.

But when it comes to birth, baby is boss.

You can try to second-guess her. Search out a pregnancy due date calculator on-line and you’ll get a pretty good idea. You simply put in the date of your last period and your normal menstrual cycle, and up comes a due date. It’s very handy.

But only pencil it into your diary. It’s just a guide. Fewer than five per cent of babies actually arrive on their due date.

You may have lived a diary-led life up to now, but accept that your pregnancy due date calculator has to be imprecise and you’ll be less disappointed when baby turns up early or late.

Technology helps a little – but even a date suggested by an ultrasound can be a week out.

A top pregnancy tip given by Mums who, with their first baby, went through the ordeal of endless questions and commiserations that baby was “late” is to give family and friends a vague timing such as “probably early April” rather than a precise date.

More pregnancy tips:

Eat well

You know what to do – eat healthily but don’t eat for two (you’ll regret it after baby’s birth if you have to lose extra blubber). It’s the usual rules: try to live without alcohol, ciggies, caffeine; drink plenty of fluids; only take supplements prescribed by your GP; lots of fruit and veg.

Sleep well

Get into a good sleep routine - at least eight hours a night and perhaps a nap in the day as birth approaches. With small children around, nap when they do or when someone can care for them.

Dress well

If you’ve always enjoyed looking good, you don’t need to skimp now. Bear your belly with pride, look out for stylish maternity wear, perhaps share stylish clothes between friends.

Walk well

Feet that are bearing the extra load of a baby deserve TLC: wear comfy shoes, and put them up whenever you can to prevent swollen ankles.

Relate well

Yes, you’re going through a lot, but don’t forget it can be tough for the dad-to-be too. Keep him involved, also give him space. And enjoy being a couple as well as parents-in-waiting.

Exercise well

Now is not the time to begin a strict new regime, but some exercise is important during pregnancy. Try walking at a moderate pace each day, or join a pregnancy exercise class.

Listen well

Listen to your body and enjoy its changes throughout these amazing months. If you have any doubts, see your GP.

Receive well

Don’t go it alone - accept any offers of help. Only you can bear this baby, but others can be very supportive just when you need it most.
