    Red face silly question

    Ok I'm just wondering what weeks in a pregnancy go with what months? I hear so many different things, I go by weeks anyway but it would be good to know what month I am in. Thanks

    I would say youre in your 6th month Renee.. but I count in weeks too so I could be wrong. When people asked me how many months, I had to count backwards from my due date to work it out. I found that people who arent or havent been pregnant seem to find counting by weeks difficult.

    Karina I do the same as you, use my due date to calculate months. The old 4 wks makes a month doesn't work - using that theory we are preg for 10 mths.

    I agree that people that don't know much about pregnancy need to know in months coz everyone knows you are preg for 9 mths.

    Thanks everyone, I think I will just stick to the weeks LOL it's too confusing! Counting backwards seems pretty easy though! Much easier than how I was trying to do it LOL

    Renee, check your ticker - 9 segments. Your 6th segment is lit up so you're in your 6th month, or just over 5m gone. Tick over a new month with the start of each month as you're due at the end of the month - so end of March is 5m gone, end of April 6m, end of May 7m, end of June 8m and end of July 9m.
