  • 12 weeks there are four weeks in a month so 12 weeks would be 3 months.

  • Not always true some months have 5 weeks. Its usually around 13.5 to 14 weeks before you hit the 3 months because your pregnant for 40 weeks which would be 10 months based off weeks but its only 9 months based off the actual calendar.

  • its thirteen weeks on the dot, almost.
    each month has 4.3 weeks.
    times three months
    equals 12.9 weeks
    aka 13 weeks
    =] good luck and congrats on the new baby =]

  • LOL, definitely NOT a silly question, but kind of a silly debate. The reason people wait is because at 12 weeks the risk of miscarriage drops dramatically. So while technically not a full three months, the general rule is to wait 12 weeks which people call three months.
