It’s an exciting time when you first realize you’re pregnant. Our handy early pregnancy calculator will help discover your conception calendar based on your ovulation cycle. This will help you answer the questions – When was ovulation? When did I conceive? How far along am I? When is my baby due? Enter the date of the first day of your last period and how long your cycle is in the birth calculator below. This is an estimate, so when you pencil in the big day in on your pregnancy calendar, remember that labor will begin when your baby is ready to be born – be patient if your estimated due date comes and goes without labor starting. Be confident that your baby will come at the perfect time!
