How did you find out that you were expecting? Intuition? Was your baby planned and you took a test to confirm when your cycle was late? Did you notice changes in your body and suspect you were getting sick? Were you nauseous all the time?
You’ve taken the test, anxiously awaited the results, and then you see it…. TWO lines, you’re pregnant!! Whether you find yourself jumping with joy or a bit shocked, it’s a surreal moment. Once it sinks in, many thoughts may flood in, but one of the first things you may wonder is when will your baby be due. Several apps can help you calculate that by inputting the first day of your last period. Most pregnancies last around 40 weeks from the first day of your last period or 38 weeks from conception.
Am I ready to be a parent? Am I ready to add another to the mix? Have you asked yourself that question lately? Maybe you have asked yourself that in the past. It’s possible you have been asked this question from friends, family, or coworkers who are considering becoming parents and want to know how you made this life-changing decision.
