Menstrual cycle and ovulation
When you become pregnant, you may feel happy, excited, nervous—or all the above! It’s normal to experience these emotions and to want to begin preparing. More than likely, one of the first questions you’ll ask is when your baby will arrive. Although every mother is different, there is a general timeline that pregnancies follow as far as due dates go, and you can determine your due date by a few different methods. Take advantage of the information and due date calculator from Enfamil below to help you find out when your baby will come.
What is ovulation?
Ovulation is essentially the release of an egg from one of the ovaries. If the released egg is fertilized by a sperm cell, you can become pregnant.
When does ovulation occur?
Ovulation may occur in the middle of a woman’s cycle. Since cycle length varies from person to person, the date of ovulation likewise varies, but in general it takes place two weeks before your next period.
How long does ovulation last?
Ovulation lasts about 12-24 hours. However, you can be fertile for up to six days. The reason: sperm can live in your body for up to five days, so if you have sex the five days before ovulation or the day of, you may get pregnant.
What are the signs of ovulation?
Signs of ovulation include cervical mucus change, breast tenderness, cramps and light spotting, amongst others. You may experience all of these symptoms, some or none at all—all of which is normal.
