What does the pregnancy dashboard display?
The pregnancy dashboard is an automatic daily pregnancy calculator, and is always based on your current pregnancy. This means if you flip the pregnancy calendar backwards to view a past pregnancy you've tracked, the pregnancy dashboard continues to give you stats on your current pregnancy and not your past.
When your baby is born and you mark the end of your current pregnancy -- or it's been more than 42 weeks since the start date of your pregnancy -- the pregnancy dashboard will no longer show pregnancy information. Further, if there is no current pregnancy being tracked, the dashboard will not display info.
The dashboard displays current pregnancy information, including:
- Pregnancy Started - The start date of your current pregnancy.
- Due Date (calculated) - The calculated estimated Due Date, based on the pregnancy start date you've entered and Naegle's Rule.
- Due Date (you entered) - If you entered the estimated Due Date, it is also shown.
- Pregnancy Week Number - The current week number of your pregnancy, based on the pregnancy start date you've entered and today's date.
- Pregnant For - The number of days you've been pregnant.
- Baby Due in (calculated) - The approximate number of days until your baby is born, based on the calculated estimated due date.
- Baby Due in (you entered) - The approximate number of days until your baby is born, based on the estimated due date you entered.
- Current Trimester - Which trimester you are in: Trimester 1, Trimester 2, Trimester 3, calculated based on the pregnancy start date you've entered and today's date.
- Next Trimester Begins - Date when next trimester begins. Displays only if you are currently in trimester 1 or 2.
Remember: Only about 1 in 20 births occur on the estimated due date (that's just 5%), so for most women (95%) there will be a margin of error of a few weeks on either side of the due date.
If you have any questions about your due date or dating your pregnancy, always talk to your doctor or healthcare provider.
