    hi ladies, ok i know theres been other threads like this but i cant seem to find one right now, im just wondering how many months is 26 weeks? is it half way through 7th month?

    Also if your telling someone how far you are do you say the complete months total or the month you're in??? if that makes any sense...

    and just one more does third tri start at the beginning of the 27th week or the end? (start of 28th?)

    thanks ladies!!! sorry for being ignorant!:dohh:

    I was totally confused by this, and also found that my female friends understood it when I said I'm "** weeks" but my male friends always asked in months! :shrug:

    Try this site, https://www.baby2see.com/development/index.html

    The diagram at the top breaks it down into weeks/months/trimesters so you can see when you change months and trimesters easily.

    It says on there 26 weeks is 6 months pregnant and you start 3rd tri at the end of your 27th week.:D
