Gestational Age Is Based On HPHT?
Hi … I was pregnant with my first child, HPHT on January 3, 2020 and then on February I did not menstruate on February 6, 2020 I tried the test pack and the results were positive about my pregnancy? And at the time of knowing positively pregnant the lower abdomen feels cramped, but now why doesn’t it hurt anymore huh ..
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. How to calculate the gestational age from HPHT can actually be enough to calculate manually how many weeks have passed from that day. So if the last time you had your period was January 3, then it should have passed around 6-7 weeks and that's your gestational age.
If you want to know when your baby is expected to be born, then you can add 7 to the date of the LMP, and add 9 to the month of LMP. So with January 3, 2020 or 3-1-2020, the day of birth is 10-10-2020 or 10 October 2020.
Then regarding stomach cramps, this is indeed one sign of pregnancy, and arises because of the influence of hormonal changes during pregnancy. But there's no need to worry if you don't feel cramps anymore because that's not necessary. Not feeling cramps does not necessarily make you not pregnant or indicates your pregnancy is not developing, as if you keep cramping regularly does not mean there are no problems with your pregnancy.
The point is we don't catch anything to worry about in your story. Even so, you still need to control your obstetrician once a month until the age of 6 months of pregnancy, continue every two weeks when you are at 7-8 months, and once a week when it reaches 9 months.
In addition, avoid coffee, limit physical activity, avoid cigarette smoke and pollution, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, consumption of cooked foods, and consumption of vitamins and pregnancy supplements as recommended. So, hopefully answering your question.
