  • nah she is 6 wks. (this is one of the reasons out there that some people say a woman can be preg for 10 months and not 9)

  • The book is probably going off the 10 month gestation, or 40 weeks. Your Dr is probably going with the more common american scale of 9 months or only 36 weeks. Either way you're pregnant the same amount of time, its just different ways of say it. Like the metric system versus our system. 1.6 Kilometers vs 1 mile... its the same distance covered but different numbers. Go by what your Dr and Ultra sound are saying. I got confused at first too when I heard someone talking about the 9 month vs 10 months. Its tricky

  • when was your last period, when you find out youre 4 weeks already and not 2 since it counts from the first day of your last period.

  • That's not always accurate either, my LMP and my ultra sound results are 3 weeks apart... Ultra sound says i'm 17 weeks, LMP says 20... Guess we'll know when she comes lol
