    I get too confused with trying to work out how many months I am so i just keep to weeks lol, I find it so much easier, till someone tried to confuse me with months.....Going by your ticker you are into month 6 with 3 months left to go, but I could be wrong.....

    you are 24 weeks so technically 6 months.. or a little behind that if you really want to get down to it.. But you technically have 4 months left because you are pregnant for just about 10 months.. not 9.. they consider 40 weeks full term which is 10 months..but babies are considered term anywhere from 37-40 weeks.. so anywhere between 9-10 months.. ...
    Did this help.. or just confuse you more? lol

    well theres 9 months in a pregnancy, but 40 weeks, which is confusing as 40 weeks is 10 months, this is because in months we count it as 28 days in a month (which is exactly 4 weeks), but in some months there are more than 28 days, so it makes it longer to make it up to 10 months but still 40 weeks, if u get me? so when u work it out inbetween months and weeks this is why it works out different? does anyone understand? lol ive just read this back to myself and it sounds very confusing! lol

    40 weeks is equivalent to 9 months in calendar dates, otherwise, in 12 months there would be 48 weeks not 52!!

    I am due the same sort of time as you and even not looking at the weeks, I work out that I have 4 months left. From Dec to Jan is one month. From Jan to Feb is 2 months. From Feb to March is three months. From March to April is 4 months. 26 weeks is half a year; half a year is 6 months, so 26 weeks is 6 months.

    You are into your 6th month of being pregnant but you are not yet a full 6 months pregnant (you will be in 2 weeks).

    just to share with you all.... as far as I know since i was a little girl, women will carry the baby (pregnant) for 9 months 10 days....

    so, calculation will be like this:
    9 x 30 days = 270 days
    + 10 days = 280 days...

    doc always count our EDD 40 weeks from our LMP, so, the total of days is
    40 x 7 days = 280 days

    isn't it amazing?

    and actually, if we want to count by months, we have to deduct 2 weeks from our current weeks, because the earlier 2 weeks is before we ovulated or we started our LMP...

    just to share....

    Pregnancy is actually 9 calendar months and one week.. Not every month is 4 weeks. Infact, only February is exactly 4 weeks :shrug:
    And a year is 12 months.. 52 weeks, so 26 weeks is 6 months x
