How do I know how many months pregnant I am?

Alright, so I am 14 weeks pregnant, i thought every month was determined by every 4 shouldnt i only be 3 1/2 months pregnant if im only 14 weeks pregnant? Aparently in a book "What to expect when your expecting" it says 4 months when your 14-17 weeks

  • dctors measure this with lunar months. youre correct, 4 weeks=1 lunar month.
    there are 4 weeks of 7 days in ONE lunar month.

    if you are 14 weeks, then you are
    3.5 months along.

    What to Expect when Expecting is a crap book..
    I recommend "Your pregnancy Week by Week"
    A lot better, and MORE up to date.

  • ooo i thought so, my pregnant friend who is about to have a baby any time soon now said that pregnancy isnt really 9 months..its sometimes 10 months

  • yeah thats right. try googling lunar months during pregnancy and find a site, they can explain it very easily. i had no idea and was confused too, but i did my own research bc for some reason i didnt get it when my dr explained it to me.

  • Yea 10mo. is a normal pregnancy. I really dont understand why the 9mo thing became so popular. lol. but ive heard time & time again "what to expect" --- ANY OF THE BOOKS are HORRIBLE! For pregnancy I had the pregnancy bible i believe is what it is called. I loved it. lots of pics & info. lots of naked pregnant woman though lol.

  • yeah, well that came out wrong. i didnt mean it in an offending way...
    its just, theres something about a big bulge and veins that creeps me out..when i look in the mirror everyday and watch my belly grow, i sometimes say ew because im not used to a change like that

    sorry if i sounded came out completely wrong
