is there a link or web to use a simple approximate due date chart like the ones the docs use?

we are TTC, so everytime i am ovulating we try! but it hasnt happened yet, i have certain times of some months that are jam packed with family birthdays an holidays so i want to avoid them as close as possible i know thats not really possible but it cant hurt to try... but i need a chart to determine approximate due date from my possible conception dates, instead of just months but weeks instead of having to whip out the old calender and count weeks to see where it could land on

    i don;t know if this is what you are looking for but it tells you when you are fertile depending on when you last had your period and it tells you if you conceive in those days when your due date will be. I hope it helps

  • From the first day of your period, count backwards 3 months and then add a week.

    From when you want the baby to be born, subtract a week and add 3 months.

    So if you want baby born in the middle of April, for instance, you'd want to conceive during the cycle starting at the beginning of July (actual ovulation/conception at the end of July).

  • Keep in mind, though, that if you don't have regular, monthly cycles, you might be SOL for some times, if you're not fertile at the right time...
