    Default ovulation and EDD

    Hiya,
    If you know when you ovulated and conceived (give or take a day), how many weeks from that time is considered 'full term'?
    Only asking as I was on clomiphene and was wondering in advance what 'overdue' for me will be (should it come to that).
    Thanks

    Your estimated due date is based on 40 weeks, but only 3-5% of babies are born on their estimated date. Term is classed from 38-42 weeks. It's much better to go by your own dates if you know them rather than ultrasound, which have a margin of error even with early scans by around 5 days or more.
