How Many Weeks of Pregnancy?
How do I calculate how many weeks of pregnancy I am today?
There are some ways to calculate how many weeks of pregnancy.
1. Assuming you has a regular 28 day cycle. It is calculated from the date of your last menstrual period by either Naegler or Parikh’s rule.
It estimates the expected date of delivery (EDD) by adding 1 year, subtract 3 months, and add 7 days to the first day of the LMP (last menstrual period) is approximately 280 days or 40 weeks.
2. Another method is by adding 9 months and 7 days to the first day of the last menstrual period. Gestational age can also be calculated by ultrasonogram.
3. Use a tool available with Crediblog which can help you in calculating pregnancy week.
This tool will approximate all important pregnancy dates like: conception date, end of first trimester, end of second trimester, first hear beat, first move, and of course due date.
Each week of pregnancy is a real adventure.
Some women prefer to count their pregnancy from the day that they were likely to be ovulating during the month. This will give you an estimated date of conception, which will be about two weeks after the first day of your LMP.
If it’s calculated according to your LMP rather than your estimated date of conception, you will be two weeks further along in your pregnancy.
