take FIRST day of last period and add 280 days. that is method

used by most ob/gyn's today. can also use Naegele's Rule which is

extremely reliable and has been around for ages. ob/gyn's still use

it today, but many have gone to the 280 day calculation mentioned

above b/c it is considered even more accurate. both are highly

regarded due date calculators. Naegele's Rule - take 1st day of

last period, subtract 3 months, then add 7 days. Example - if 1st

day of last period was November 15 2008, due date would be August

ob/gyn or midwife if you suspect pregnancy! Angie RN
