Calculate my conception date

We want our 2nd baby to be born be C-section, on the 28th of December 2010. My last menstrual period started on the 17th of February 2010 and ended on the 20th of February 2010. Can you help us calculate the exact conception date or give us guide lines as to when to conceive if we want the baby''s birthday to be on the 28th of December 2010.

It isn't possible to plan things to this level. From you last period, you should ovulate on about APril 1st and can potentially conceive them. This would make you 40 weeks on 23 rd December. If you waited for the next month, you would only be 36 and a half weeks on December 28th which would be too early for a delivery. The timing of conception depends on your cycle and cannot be manipulated to this extent.
