One of the first things a pregnant mum wants to know after having realised that she is pregnant is to find out how many weeks pregnant she is and when is the due date for her baby which leads to a whole new world of pregnancy lingo.

Gestation is the period of time a woman is pregnant for.  Most babies are born between 38 and 42 weeks of gestation and so your due date is calculated at 40 weeks gestation with the knowledge that the baby may arrive 2 weeks either side of this.

What is the Gestational Age of a baby?

Gestational age is measured in weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. This means that your last period counts as part of your pregnancy even though you weren't actually pregnant. This is why if you do a digital pregnancy test you then have to add 2 weeks to have an idea of gestational age.

Fetal growth doesn't actually start until conception, which is when a sperm fertilizes an egg.

Initially, when you see your doctor or midwife he/she will perform a calculation based on the first day of your last period to estimate the due date for your baby. However, this system is only accurate when a woman has a regular 28 day menstrual cycle and ovulates on day 14 however many of us do not fit into this category.

The most accurate way to assess the gestational age of a pregnancy is by a first trimester ultrasound scan. This can be performed from 6 weeks of pregnancy onwards in a private clinic local to you.

6 Week Baby 4D Pregnancy Scan - Reassurance for Mothers

This early pregnancy scan not only assesses gestational age but can also bring the reassurance that the pregnancy has embedded correctly within the womb, the pulsations of the fetal heart can be seen from 6 weeks of pregnancy onwards.

For many women, the reassurance that the pregnancy has started well offsets the overwhelming feelings of tiredness and nausea that can be experienced at this time.
