Your 40 weeks of pregnancy are counted as nine months. But wait…there are four weeks in a month, which would make 40 weeks 10 months.
How do they calculate pregnancy?
The development of pregnancy is counted from the first day of the woman's last normal menstrual period (LMP), even though the development of the fetus does not begin until conception, which is about two weeks later. Counting from the LMP, most women are pregnant an average of 280 days.
At 37 weeks, your pregnancy is considered full-term. The average baby weighs around 3-4kg by now. Your baby's gut (digestive system) now contains meconium – the sticky green substance that'll form your baby's first poo after birth.
Which is 10 months. However, Your gestational weeks are only 38 weeks. You are not PREGNANT for the first 2 weeks as those are the weeks that are during yur cycle and fertilization. So because most women don't find out til they are 6 weeks or so.. tech, they are only 'knowingly' pregnant for 9 months.
12 weeks is really 2 1/2 months pregnant. You are three months at 14 weeks, and then also hit the 2nd trimester. You then count roughly every 4 weeks per month from then on (a month really has 4.3 weeks, but that's another story).
If you consider a month to be 4 weeks, it's 8 months. We are actually pregnant for 9 1/2 to 10 months (40 weeks). You have to remember that some months have 4 1/2 weeks, though. Without all the technical math, just consider yourself 8 months, although you still have 6-8 weeks of pregnancy left.
weeks 1-4 is 1 month weeks 5-8 is 2 months weeks 9-13 is 3 months weeks 14-17 is 4 months weeks 18-22 is 5 months weeks 23-27 is 6 months weeks 28-31 is 7 months weeks 32-35 is 8 months weeks 36-40 is month 9.
Pregnancies are considered full term at 40 weeks, and many women count four weeks as a month while they are pregnant, making the result a ten month pregnancy. On average there are actually 4.33 weeks in a month, however that a third of a week tends to get lost in the pregnancy shuffle for much of us.
I'm 22 weeks now, so how many months i'm pregnant. According to exact mathematical calculation, you are 5 months and 2.5 days pregnant while at 22 weeks. That means your 6th month have already been started.
You are 4 and 1/2 months pregnant. Once you are 22 weeks you are 5 months pregnant. This is going by the "what to expect when you're expecting" monthly chapters, not by dividing 4 into 21. A month is not exactly 4 weeks contrary to what the previous rather rude poster alluded to.
You can start counting pregnancy weeks as soon as you calculate your due date based on your LMP. You will be counting your 40 weeks from the first day of LMP. As you near the due date, you may have to start counting your pregnancy by days as – 39 weeks one day, 39 weeks two days, and so on (6).
Baby is about 19.6 inches long and his or her head is about the same circumference as the abdomen. Average baby weight at 38 weeks is 6.8 pounds. Sounds a lot like a birth weight, huh? 38 weeks pregnant is eight months and about two weeks.

Human gestational length averages 38 weeks (8.74 months) from conception. However, pregnancy is customarily measured from the date of the last menstrual period — about 2 weeks before conception. By this scale, pregnancy lasts 40 weeks, or 9.20 months.
Pregnancy lasts for about 280 days or 40 weeks. A preterm or premature baby is delivered before 37 weeks of your pregnancy. Extremely preterm infants are born 23 through 28 weeks. Moderately preterm infants are born between 29 and 33 weeks.
36 weeks in 9 months thats the part people dont usually tell you pregnancy is alomost 10 MONTHS!!! i know that sucks but the myth of 9 months came because that is when the baby is usually full term but many women dont deliver until about 40 weeks or more.
