  • Count 40 weeks or 9 months from the date of the start of your last period.

  • Starting with the first day of your last period, subtract 3 months and add a week--so January 6. That's what doctors will go by.

    From ovulation, you subract 3 months and an additional week--assuming ovulation happened on your last fertile day, 4/16, your due date would be January 9.

  • Using Naegele's Rule, which is a widely accepted way to determine gestation when a lab test is not available, your due date would be around January 6, 2012. We used to use this method all the time when I worked at the Health Department, and it is surprisingly accurate!

    The rule estimates the expected date of delivery (EDD) (also called EDC, for estimated date of confinement) from the first day of the woman's LMP by adding 1 year, subtracting three months and adding seven days to that date. The result is approximately 280 days (40 weeks) from the LMP.

    LMP = 8 May 2009

    +1 year = 8 May 2010
    -3 months = 8 February 2010
    +7 days = 15 February 2010
