i thought it was supposed to be 12 because 12 weeks = approx. 3 months.
3 months + 3 months + 3 months = 9 months. But, it doesn't make sense in terms of weeks because 12 + 12 + 12 is only 36....so i dunno...i'm confused now...

I think it is easier to think of pregnancy in terms weeks instead of months. The months seem harder to pin down.

Because there are a few days over 4 exact weeks in each month, we find extra weeks being made up of the extra days collected from each month.

Regarding the closing time for the first trimester, I have found a mix of info. Some places consider it 12 weeks and others 13 or 14. I think the 12-14 range is a transitional stage between the first two trimesters. Pick the one you are most comfortable with.
