Months 4 - 6 Are The Second Trimester, And  (13 Weeks To The 27 Weeks)
Months 7 - 9 Are The Third Trimester. (28 Weeks To 40 Weeks )

EDD Calculation Pregnancy

Lunar Months
Prenatal development is often measured in lunar months. Each lunar month consists of 28 days, organized into four weeks of seven days each. That means a pregnancy is 10 lunar months long!

Naegele's rule
Naegele's rule is a standard way of calculating the due date for a pregnancy when assuming a gestational age of 280 days at childbirth. The rule estimates the expected date of delivery (EDD) by adding a year, subtracting three months, and adding seven days to the origin of gestational age. The result is approximately 280 days (40 weeks) from the start of the last menstrual period. Another method is by adding 9 months and 7 days to the first day of the last menstrual period.

Naegele's rule is named after Franz Karl Naegele, the German obstetrician who devised the rule. Naegele was born July 12, 1778, in Düsseldorf, Germany. In 1806, Naegele became ordinary professor and director of the lying-in hospital in Heidelberg. His Lehrbuch der Geburtshilfe, published in 1830 for midwives, enjoyed a successful 14 editions.

Here's the formula to calculate your Estimated Due Date using Naegele's rule :
Date of Last Menstrual Period + 7 Days + 9 Calendar Months = Date of Estimated Date of Delivery

LMP = 8 May 2019

+1 year = 8 May 2020
−3 months = 8 February 2020
+7 days = 15 February 2020

In the Video Dr. Manoranjan Mohapatra , describes the other options, to understand EDD , when the person forget LMP Date. In that scenario,

In India , mostly in Hindu culture , it  is a very common practice not to talk while Eating , . 

And there is an incredible explanation on Why One Should not Talk While Eating ? 

Let Go through the References of both the Ancient Hindu Thoughts (listed below)  as well as Scientific Explanations as it has been Presented here in the Below Video by Dr. Manoranjan Mohapatra. in ODIA / ORIYA Language .

Lets see What the Ancient Hindu Cultural Thoughts are on Avoiding Talk While Eating 

Maharshi Veda Vyasa cautions in one of the Smiritis (Reference : Essence of Dharma Sastra)

He arranged the Vedas for the good of mankind and wrote the Brahma Sutras for the quick and easy understanding of the Shrutis; he also wrote the Mahabharata to enable common people to understand the highest knowledge in the easiest way. Vyasa wrote the 18 Puranas and established the system of teaching them through ‘Upakhyanas’ or discourses*

"Snaasyato Varunasshobhaam juhvatognih shriyam haret, Bhojane mrityumaapnoti tasmaanmounam trishu smritam"
Which means 
Conversation while bathing is disliked Varuna Deva and in the course of Homa prakriya the God of Agni detests it just as while taking food Mrityu Deva(Or Yama) is annoyed; hence during these three acts of snaana-homa-bhojana, silence needs to be observed strictly.)

The Above Shloka represents and Explains it in a highly scientific understanding of the Ancient Vedic ages. 

So its says 

" If you talk while eating your throat is trying to do two things at the same time, swallowing food inwards while eating and sending sound/air outwards in the opposite direction while talking. Since you are trying to do two things which requires the throat to function in opposite direction, you are increasing the likelihood of choking which may even lead to death". 

Thousand's Years later , Now,  the Science is Also Making the Same with visual Explanation, as is been presented by Sr. Manoranjan Mohapatra here

The Scientific Explanation on Why not to Talk While Eating 

Scientifically it is the Epiglottis that is the focus of this reasoning 

Lets Understand What exactly is Epiglottis and Why its so important ?

Well The epiglottis is a leaf-shaped flap in the throat that prevents food from entering the windpipe and the lungs. 

Epiglottis is the valve which opens and closes for respiration which is present at the junction at the food and wind pipe.

The epiglottis stands open during breathing, allowing air into the larynx to the Lungs

During swallowing, the epiglottis closes to prevent aspiration of food into the Wind Pipe, force the food to go along the esophagus toward the stomach instead. 

Hence When we eat food it closes but when we talk While eating the epiglottis would remain open and the food may enter windpipe which may trigger violent coughing to clear the food material out of trachea or may get serious by Chocking and may be fatal.

That is why it is not advised to talk while eating.


In America The National Safety Council (NSC) is leading nonprofit safety advocate. The NSC focus on eliminating the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths.

And their Statistics Shows the fact that fact food choking is the fourth largest cause of unintentional deaths in the world today.

It seems as though many in India are living a life that leads to high blood pressure or hypertension. As people age, the situation gets worse. Nearly two third of all elderly have hypertension. 

Hypertension makes people five times more prone to strokes, three times more likely to have a heart attack, and two to three times more likely to experience a heart failure.

A Report From Indian Heart Journal (See here) had shown a rise in of Hypertension or High Blood Pressure patients in the recent few years:

The Report Concludes that :
There is a very high prevalence of hypertension among Indian adults, across all age groups. In addition, there is poor awareness, treatment, and control among those with hypertension.

What is the main cause of hypertension?

There are many Causes of High Blood Pressure , but the Distinct problems are Unawareness and Lifestyle.

Sometimes abnormalities of the kidney are responsible for High Blood Pressure or Hypertension. There is also a study wherein the researchers identified more common contributing factors such as heredity, obesity, and lack of physical activity.

The Awareness Gap

The problem with Hypertension is that nearly one third of the folks who have hypertension do not know it because they never feel any direct pain. But overtime the force of that pressure damages the inside surface of your blood vessels. 

How can One Prevent High Blood Pressure ?

According to experts, hypertension is not predestined. Reducing salt intake, adopting a desirable dietary pattern losing weight and exercising can all help prevent hypertension.

The Lifestyle Changes

Obviously, quitting bad habits and eating a low fat diet will help, but the most significant part that you can do is to exercise. And just as exercise strengthens and improves limb muscles, it also enhances the health of the heart muscles. 

Heart and Exercise are Friends Forever

The exercise stimulates the development of new connections between the impaired and the nearly normal blood vessels, so people who exercise had a better blood supply to all the muscle tissue of the heart.

The human heart basically, supply blood to an area of the heart damaged in a “myocardial infarction.” A heart attack is a condition, in which, the myocardium or the heart muscle does not get enough oxygen and other nutrients and so it begins to die.

For this reason and after a series of careful considerations, some researchers have observed that exercise can stimulate the development of these life saving detours in the heart. One study further showed that moderate exercise several times a week is more effective in building up these auxiliary pathways than extremely vigorous exercise done twice as often.

Such information has led some people to think of exercise as a panacea for heart disorders, a fail-safe protection against hypertension or death. That is not so. Even marathon runners that have suffered hypertension, and exercise cannot overcome combination of other risk factor.

5 Best Exercise Tips to Prevent hypertension or can be done to lower blood pressure and avoid the risk of developing hypertension

1. See your doctor

Check with your doctor before beginning an exercise program. If you make any significant changes in your level of physical activity — particularly if those changes could make large and sudden demands on your circulatory system — check with your doctors again.

2. Take it slow

Start at a low, comfortable level of exertion and progress gradually. The program is designed in two stages to allow for a progressive increase in activity.

3. Know your limit

Determine your safety limit for exertion. Use some clues such as sleep problems or fatigue the day after a workout to check on whether you are overdoing it. Once identified, stay within it. Over-exercising is both dangerous and unnecessary. 

4. Exercise regularly 

You need to work out a minimum of three times a week and a maximum of five times a week to get the most benefit. Once you are in peak condition, a single workout a week can maintain the muscular benefits. However, cardiovascular fitness requires more frequent activity.

5. Exercise at a rate within your capacity

The optimum benefits for older exercisers are produced by exercise at 40% to 60% of capacity.

Indeed, weight loss through exercise is an excellent starting point if you wan tot prevent hypertension. Experts say that being overweight is linked to an increased risk of developing hypertension, and losing weight decreases the risk.
