Determining the date of birth, pregnancy and childbirth

In many young families, sometime comes the moment when a couple decides to supplement their family. With the onset of pregnancy, a woman has many questions related to her, the birth of a child and everything that she needs to acquire.

Here came the long-awaited pregnancy for many. When to wait for the birth of a baby? This important point, many parents seek to determine as accurately as possible, resorting to the help of physicians. And some use folk methods, but I am a supporter of modern medicine.

By date of last menstruation

This method is the most common. It is they who use gynecologists to establish a preliminary date of delivery (DA).

As a rule, the doctors determine the date of birth, starting from the first day of the last menstruation of the expectant mother (plus or minus 1-2 weeks). Not every specialist can establish the exact date of delivery so that it coincides with the real date. It all depends on the course of pregnancy, as well as its features, if any.

Very often, doctors use the Negele formula: from the first day of the menstrual cycle they take three months and then add 7 days. This is the date of the expected birth.

By date of conception and ovulation

In this way, you can also use, but not every couple knows exactly when the conception or ovulation occurred. According to the stories of my friends and from my personal experience, many only suggest.

The exceptions are couples who have long and hard tried to get pregnant and the process of conception and the date of ovulation are literally painted by day. Or those who have had sexual relations rarely and know that it was on this day that everything happened.

Doctors also often use this method. As for me, it is not very reliable, since it is impossible to judge by all children developing in the womb equally. But sometimes, ultrasound can say that the placenta is outdated and the birth needs to be stimulated, or that the woman has little water, etc.

How was i

I learned that I was pregnant by making a test. The next day I went to the doctor for an examination. After making an ultrasound, the doctor set a period of 5 weeks. Preliminary date of delivery is also negotiated. I had to give birth around the 20th of July 2009.

But my baby decided otherwise and was born much earlier than the preliminary date of delivery, July 3rd.

You should not be guided with maximum precision on medical methods. It all depends on your body. When the time comes, you yourself will feel the time has come!
