Knowing the date of the first positive pregnancy test result allows the calculation of a minimum GA. For example, if the test was performed 4 weeks ago and the test is known to return positive results as early as 1 week after conception, then the minimum conceptional age (CA) would be 5 weeks (GA, 5 2 = 7 wk of amenorrhea).This information can be useful in clinical practice if the test finding has been documented by a health care professional.The estimation of pregnancy dates is important for the mother, who wants to know when to expect the birth of her baby, and for her health care providers, so they may choose the times at which to perform various screening tests and assessments,such as serum screening, assessment of maturity, and induction of labor for postdate pregnancies.The 3 basic methods used to help estimate gestational age (GA) are menstrual history, clinical examination, and ultrasonography.Gestational age (GA) refers to the length of pregnancy after the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP) and is usually expressed in weeks and days. Conceptional age (CA) is the true fetal age and refers to the length of pregnancy from the time of conception.
The size of the uterus can be assessed by pelvic examination or by abdominal palpation.
