The advanced method uses the Mittendorf-Williams rule, which is said to be more accurate since it takes more factors into account like race, weight and coffee consumption.

Your due date is calculated by adding 280 days (40 weeks) to the first day of your last menstrual period (assuming a 28 day cycle).
Note that your menstrual period and ovulation are counted as the first two weeks of pregnancy. If you deliver on your due date, your baby is actually only 38 weeks old, not 40.
Please remember that your due date is only an estimate. Every pregnancy is unique and your baby will come when its ready. Be sure to talk to your health care provider about your due date.
On average only 5% of births take place exactly on the estimated due date. Most are born within a week either side of the estimated due date. A normal pregnancy can last anywhere between 38 and 42 weeks.
