Knowing your babys due date will help your provider monitor your babys growth more accurately. Because certain laboratory tests change throughout your pregnancy, knowing an accurate due date will also allow your provider to better track these tests, and, if it occurs, to manage preterm labor.
How many weeks pregnant if I know conception date?
First day of last period Most pregnancies last around 40 weeks (or 38 weeks from conception), so typically the best way to estimate your due date is to count 40 weeks, or 280 days, from the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP).
How long does it take for conception after ovulation?
Getting pregnant after ovulation is possible, but is limited to the 12-24 hours after your egg has been released. Cervical mucus helps sperm live up to 5 days in a womans body, and it takes around 6 hours for active sperm to reach the fallopian tubes.
How do you know ovulation ended?
As you get close to ovulation, your cervical mucus will become copious, clear and slippery—like egg whites. It stretches between your fingers. Once your discharge becomes scant and sticky again, ovulation is over.
