I was told by my doctor you start counting week 1-4 because of a full 9 months.which at 19 weeks would make me 5 months,at least thats what I've been telling everyone.Then a nurse told me differently, and I began to look up something which said you dont count till 4 weeks.Which would make me only 4 months pregnant.Now I'm all confused,so which one is it?advice appreciated!Answer Question

According to What to Expect When You're Expecting, the 5th month occurs at 18-22 weeks. At 19 weeks, you are just over 4 months pregnant because you have completed 4 months of pregnancy. When you complete 22 weeks, you will have completed 5 months of pregnancy and will then be "5 months pregnant."
This is because one week elapses when you hit the same day of each week and a month elapses when you hit the same DATE (not day) of each month. There aren't always 4 weeks to a month, there are sometimes more and sometimes less. You are technically pregnant for 10 months but you only count for 9 (hence it being difficult to tell how many traditional-pregnancy-months you are). Hope that helped!
