One of the first things you will want to know after your pregnancy is confirmed is your due date. Your due date is calculated by adding 7 days to the first day of your last menstrual period and subtracting 3 months, i.e. Dec. 1st + 7 days – 3 months = Sept. 8th. A normal pregnancy is considered 280 days or 40 weeks or 10 lunar months.
