Just wondering how you calculate your EDD? Is it from when you think you conceived or from your last period? Thanks and sorry for the daftness :-8

Thanks Mrs Summer. Is it from the date you started it or ended? Told you I was daft :-8 :-8

Hey dying4it, Its calculated by adding 40 weeks to the first day of your last period. :wv

i have a pregnancy book here - if you give me (or pm me) the 1st day of your last period I can tell you your edd from the chart.

Here you go: You may also estimate your delivery date by using the steps 1 and 2 and the chart: 1.First, locate the first day of your last menstrual period (in black text). 2.Next, note the date directly below. This is your estimated date of delivery (in blue text). [img:3iv2whvb]http://www.lpch.org/media/images/conditions/ei_0149.gif[/img:3iv2whvb]
