  • I mostly go by weeks, but this am I ws on webmd and it divides it for you by lunar months and clander months. I'm 29 weeks so third trimester and either 7 or 8 months depending on how you count the months, I say 8. There is 40 weeks in pregnancy and each month has 4 weeks, that means I'll be pregnant for 10 months.

  • I always went by weeks, never months. There's 2 different ways to calculate it and it confuses people.

    You can go by 9 calendar months, or you can say 4 weeks = a month.

  • Use a pregnancy calculator (find them through yahoo search)...... and jombmomi is right, it is a common misconception that women are pregnant for 9 mo's, 10 mo's or more if you are over due :-) good luck
