Question: What is EDD and LMP in pregnancy?

The estimated due date (EDD or EDC) is the date that spontaneous onset of labor is expected to occur. The due date may be estimated by adding 280 days ( 9 months and 7 days) to the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP). This is the method used by pregnancy wheels.

What is an LMP in pregnancy?

Gestational age (GA) refers to the length of pregnancy after the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) and is usually expressed in weeks and days. This is also known as menstrual age. Conceptional age (CA) is the true fetal age and refers to the length of pregnancy from the time of conception.

What is the position of a baby boy in the womb?

Fetal Positions for Birth. Ideally for labor, the baby is positioned head-down, facing your back, with the chin tucked to its chest and the back of the head ready to enter the pelvis. This is called cephalic presentation. Most babies settle into this position with the 32nd and 36th week of pregnancy.

How do you know if you conceived a boy?

You can typically find out the sex of your baby via ultrasound. This will be performed between 18 and 20 weeks. The ultrasonographer will look at your babys image on the screen and examine the genitals for different markers that suggest boy or girl. This is part of a larger anatomy scan.
