"For example, if a patient is two weeks beyond Naegele's rule for a due date, [the obstetrician] might induce labor for post-maturity" without realizing the infant is actually only a week overdue.
The duration of pregnancy is 40 weeks (280) days calculated from the Last Menstrual Period (LMP), according to Naegele's rule. Only 4% (1 in 20) of women deliver on the due date (EDD).
The obstetric history included duration of gestation estimated by naegele's rule (1st day of LMP) and confirmed by recorded PV examination of 1st trimester and any 1st/2nd trimester sonography if available.
