Confused!? Is 16 weeks 4 months pregnant??


On tuesday i will be 16 weeks pregnant, i was trying to work out how many months that makes me.

If you go by my due date i will be 4 months on the 23rd of October (im due 23rd of March).

But if you go by weeks 16 is four months, that will be 6th of October.

What do you go by? I would rather tell people how many months i am rather than weeks, it gets confusing when you get further along.

The more i think about it the more it confuses me lol...i am not good with numbers!hahas

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

I usually tell people in weeks, even if they ask in months. I wont say I'm 6 months until the 7th of October, as then there will be exactly 3 months till my EDD.

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.
