  • they go by weeks and there are "4" weeks in a month so you would be pregnant for 10m.
    but some months have 4wks and 2 or 3 days so that is were the rest of the days go. In reality you are pregnant 9m. Dont worry about it.

  • you are pregnant for 40 weeks. this is 10 lunar months or about 9 1/2 calendar months since a calendar month is not exactly 4 weeks, it's 4 weeks and 2 or 3 days depending on the month.

  • Yeah well 40 weeks is a total of 10 months so when people say your pergnant for 9 months it's the full 9 months like the end beggining of the 10th month.

  • There are 52 weeks in a year, and 12 months......52weeks/12months= around 4.33 weeks in a month (of course there are some that have less than that and some that have more) .....so then if you take the 40weeks you are pregnant and divide it by 4.33 weeks in a month, you get that you are pregnant for 9.23months :) Can you tell I am a math major?? lol
