If you go by lunar months, you are 4 months pregnant. Going by lunar months is saying that pregnancy is 10 months long and each month is 4 weeks. If you decide to go by calendar months then you are 3.8 months pregnant because some months have more than 4 weeks. To figure out the calendar months, you just divide 40 weeks by the number of weeks you are pregnant. Since pregancy is actually 9.5 months long because you add the two weeks with it before you actually got pregnant, you take 9.5 and divide it by the number you got from dividing 40 by the number of weeks you are. So...at 16 weeks pregnant, it will be 40/16 = 2.5. 9.5/2.5 = 3.8 calendar months pregnant
So, if you are 19wks you are IN your 5th month - but you are only 4 months pregnant.
At 19 weeks, you could say you are in your 5th month if people ask. Or because you're near the middle say 4 1/2 months if you're more comfortable with that. At 16 weeks I prefer to say I'm 4 months pregnant. It's really up to you how you want to phrase it, but at 14 weeks, I'd probably have said I've just started my 4th month.
i just look at my ticker when i was in box 1 i said i was in my first , 2nd box 2nd ect... so not i say im in my 4th month , dont know if thats right but thats how i do it lol. i normally just say weeks though seems to be easier x
