Good evening, thanks for the question
Normal pregnancy lasts for 36-40 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period (HPHT). calculation of gestational age one of which can be with the calendar method with HPHT benchmark. If based on your HPHT on 16 October 2018, the current gestational age is 10 weeks 1 day. Estimated delivery can be calculated by the Nagele formula namely H + 7 B-3 T + 1. then your estimated delivery is July 23, 2019.
Perform routine obstetric checks to the midwife or obstetrician at least 1 time in the first trimester, 1 time in the second trimester, and 2 times in the third trimester. Drinking enough water, increase the amount of balanced food consumption in a day, normal physical exercise is not excessive, consumption of additional vitamin and mineral supplements, as well as doing tetanus vaccination.
