How far along am I really?

I'm all kinds of confused now. I use ivillage for my pregnancy calender. I type in my due date and it says I'm 18 weeks / 121 days then says I'm at week 15 of gestation or 17 weeks since LMP. And less than a week ago it said I was 3.8 months. And I don't get how 17 weeks is not 4 months yet. So (and I know how stupid this must sound) how many weeks / months am I?

    I would try that, no body could really tell you how far along you are without knowing the first date of your last period.

  • 17 w 2 days by your dd and 17w 4 days by your last period. Did they give you an ultrasound already? If they did I would go by your dd, cause cycles vary.

  • Lunar month is 30 days and sometimes 4 weeks (28 days) is counted as a month, so itgets confusing calling it by months I always just say weeks.

  • The reason it would say 17 weeks since LMP or 15 weeks gestation is because your due date is 38 weeks past the date of conception, PLUS TWO weeks.
    40 weeks is actually since your last period, but on average, 38 weeks since you got pregnant.
