Posted on Wed, 30 Jul 2014
Question: I have a question that does not pertain to my health.
If a known conception date was April 27th, 1996- is it possible for the pregnancy to last as long as the delivery date of February 4, 1997? I thought the average pregnancy to term is approx 267 days?

possible

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
If conception date is 26-04-96 then exact expected date of delivery is 4-2-97.
It is calculated by adding 9 months and 7 days to conception date.
I hope I'm clear on this. Take care.
