Hi Big Red,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Congratulations on your pregnancy as well. I like to offer the pregnancy calculator from Baby Center which you can find here http://www.babycenter.com/pregnancy-due-date-calculator.


If you haven't already, you should see your doctor and they can better determine your due date by sonograms. Depending on your situation, your doctor may request a C-section and pre-determine your due date while I know many others like to have natural deliveries and your due date can depend as the baby will come when he/she feels ready.


I hope this information has helped you. Please keep us posted.
