Know Your Cycle
One of the most helpful pieces of information that help to accurately determine it is the timing of the menstrual cycle. It is important to know when the first day of your last period was, and then the ovulation time frame can be determined. There are a few key days that are the best opportunity for egg fertilization to occur.
Approximate Date of Conception
A very helpful piece of information is the approximate date of conception. Having this information, combined with the date of your cycle, can narrow down the possible dates. In some cases, it may not be able to determine the date of conception, at which point, the due date would be calculated using the information about the menstrual cycle and ovulation period.
Due Date Calculator
The most accurate method to get an accurate due date is to use a calculator. This takes into consideration many factors related to both the fetus, menstrual cycle, and date of conception if available. All of these factors are used to give expecting parents a close estimation as to when the baby will be full term, and ready to be delivered.
Of course, there are always possible factors that may change the due date related to medical conditions, or external conditions that interfere with the natural course of the pregnancy. It is best, however, to use a professional due date calculator to get the best estimation so parents can begin to plan for the big arrival.
