You are bursting with excitement. You have discovered that you are pregnant. In approximately nine months, a bundle of joy will arrive who is going to change your life. As you get ready to take this journey, you have a long to-do list. You need to find out how to take care of yourself so that you will be taking care of your baby as well. You will have to start preparing your home for your new arrival. You also want to have an idea of when your baby will be here. Consider some simple due date calculator tips in order to mark your calendar for the most important date in your life.
Get Your Information Ready
You will find that we have a due date calculator available on our website to help you to get an estimate of your due date. Some of the information that may be plugged into the calculator includes when your last menstrual cycle began and how long your cycles tend to last. You can also look at your estimated date of conception. Once you enter this information into our due date calculator, you will be given a time period when your baby could arrive.
Babies Come in Their Own Sweet Time
While the due date calculator will give you an estimate, remember that it is only a ballpark figure. You can’t pin down your baby’s arrival to the exact date when your little one will be born. Your baby could safely arrive at any point between 37 weeks and 42 weeks of developing inside of you. As long as there are no problems with your pregnancy, being on the earlier end of that time frame is not a problem. If your baby waits longer to get here, be prepared for a larger baby. The best thing you can do is accept the fact that your baby is going to get here when the baby gets here.
Team Up with Our Doctor to Monitor Your Baby’s Progress
While you can use a due date calculator to help you to pinpoint the time frame for your baby’s arrival, be sure to see our doctor at South Lake OB/GYN regularly as well. Regardless of when your little one arrives, our medical team will make you and your baby a top priority. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at our office in Clermont!
