  • yeah it does get confusing, cause ive heard people say they were 10 months. and i was like i thought we only went nine. lol but i think its all up to the baby until it gets to be unhealthy for the both and need to be induced. i would defently look up more info or just ask your doctor. best of luck.

  • I think most people do go by the weeks and the growth of the baby at that week. I would say your 3 months though, but it can be confusing.

  • i would for sure say you are three months not four, as far as i knew your fourth month was 16 weeks

  • Some gestation calenders go by lunar months which are 4 weeks long meaning your overal pregnancy is 10 lunar months. Alot of people don't understand the lunar months so they go off of calendar months. In a calendar months you are 3 months pregnant in Lunar months you are 3 months and 1 week. I have decided to tell people how far along I am based on weeks or calendar months to go. I am 29 weeks.

  • You are pregnant for 40 weeks and there are 4 weeks in a month it does equal out to 10 months. It does not take into account that some months have five weeks. And if you divide 4 into thirteen that gives you three which would put you "in" your fourth month. I think that is how most of them put it when I look.

  • You're IN your fourth 16 weeks, you'd have completed 4 months (at 4 weeks per month)
