  • I don't think so. RIght now you are three months and one week. Your fourth month doesn't start until 16 weeks. At least i think. It gets confusing! =) Congratulations!

  • You are almost 3 1/2 months. Pregnancy goes by lunar months (4 wks a piece), so technically you are only 3 1/2 months.

    Merry Christmas!!

  • A month is actually 4.3 weeks. With the exception of Feb every 4 years a month has 4 weeks plus 2 or 3 additional days. You're 3 months pregnant right now.

  • "What to Expect" says you turn 4 months on your 14th week. Going by that I'd say you're closer to being right. I find the whole month counting system to be really bizarre though...

  • According to the chart in what to expect when Expecting, this is the first week of your fourth month, yes.

  • Pregnancy uses a lunar calendar - 40 weeks, 9 months 4 weeks each so you're actual due date would be day ONE of your 10th month.  You'll be in your 4th month 14 weeks.
