A Word About Due Dates and Trimesters
After you announce your pregnancy, the first question you'll probably be asked
is "When are you due?" At your first prenatal visit, your health care provider will
help you determine an expected delivery date (EDD). Your EDD is 40 weeks from the
first day of your last menstrual period (LMP).
It's important to remember that your due date is only an estimate — most
babies are born between 38 and 42 weeks from the first day of their mom's LMP and
only a small percentage of women actually deliver on their due date.
Another common term you'll hear throughout your pregnancy is trimester. A pregnancy
is divided into trimesters:
the first trimester is from week 1 to the end of week 12
the second trimester is from week 13 to the end of week 26
the third trimester is from week 27 to the end of the pregnancy
