  • This calculator gives you many options for estimating gestation and delivery dates. Input any or all parameters to compare the various date calculations. The Current Date is set to your local workstation date.
  • EDC by LMP is calculated by adding 280 days (40 weeks) to the first day of the last menstrual period.
  • Gestation by LMP is calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period.
  • Gestation by CRL is calculated: Weeks = 5.2876 + (0.1584 * Crown_Rump_Length) - (0.0007 * Crown_Rump_Length2). This will be gestation at time of ultrasound.
  • Gestation by BPD is calculated using the formula: Days = 2 * BPD + 44.2. This will be gestation at time of ultrasound.
  • Gestation by HC is calculated: Weeks = eTo(1.854 + (0.010451 * Head_Circumference) - (0.000029919 * Head_Circumference2) + 0.000000043156 * Head_Circumference3). This will be gestation at time of ultrasound.
  • N.B. CRL dates are appropriate for the first trimester, while BPD and HC dates are best applied to the second trimester.
