# So confused.....

so how do they calculate the weeks and the months
I am 14 weeks preggo and I was thinking that I am 4 months, but the other day this woman asked me how many weeks I was and I told her 14 and she was like oh your only 3 months, you are big for three months are you having twins. I was like no its only one, and I am 4 months. Very confusing can anyone help?

• Well, it's really confusing. If you go by the LUNAR calander pregnancy is 10 months but if you go by the typical calender it goes something like this:

Trimester 1= 1-12, Trimester 2= 13-27, trimester 3= 28 until the end.

It's all really confusing. You would be in the very beginning of your 4th month at 14 weeks lol.
