  • Your pregnant for 40 weeks/ 10 months. The ends of 4 weeks starts month 2, at the end of 8 weeks starts month 3 even though you arent 3 months until 12 weeks it still starts at 8 weeks. I know it sounds confusing but thats why people count it by weeks and not months. So instead of 4 months pregnant you are 16 weeks pregnant, ect....
