Have you been trying to figure out when your baby will arrive? Adding, subtracting, multiplying, counting on your fingers? Figuring out your pregnancy due date is actually easier than you think.
How is my due date calculated?
There’s no exact way to tell for sure when you ovulated and conceived, unless you’re tracking your ovulation or only had sex with on one occasion before your missed period. Your pregnancy due date is calculated on the date of your last period instead to give a relatively more accurate estimate.

Will my baby be born on my due date?
There’s no way to tell for definite if your baby will arrive on your pregnancy due date, it’s really just more of an estimate. Only about 4% of babies are actually born on their predicted due date. Knowing your due date will give you time to get everything ready, and be prepared for when labor does start and your baby arrives.
