  • I always thought 20 weeks was 5 months (the 4 weeks per month multiplied by the 5), but I think the months work differently than the weeks. I'd say 17 weeks is 4 months and a week, but that's just my opinion.

  • you are correct..i am also 17 weeks..well 17 weeks and 4 days to be exact mom says im gonna drive myself crazy if i cont. to count like this but oh well its are 4 months and 3 weeks then at 18 weeks you will be 5 months..but keep in mind that normally the docs consider your 5 and 6th months to have 5 weeks in them.. so your 5 months will be from weeks 18 to 23 and 6 month will be from 23 to 28..if you havent recieved a What to Expect While Expecting you should def. invest in this book it is awesome and will tell you what you will or could be going through!! Congradulations and Good luck!! I hope this helps.

  • 4 weeks is one month eight is two, so 17is the second week of four months! You are four months pregnant for 4 weeks! And so on!

  • Pregnancy counts as four weeks in every month. So you would be four months.
