Neat "How many months (vs weeks) pg am I?" calculator (LIP)

I got in a bit of an argument with my best friend over when "6 months pg" begins (she was saying 24 weeks, I thought it was more into 26-27 weeks), so I sought out and found this calculator online.  Thought maybe it might interest some of you too Smile

  • Thanks Stef.  It was bothering me that my ticker already shows 7.  Yeah, I'm in my seventh month, but at 27 weeks 6 days only really 6.3 months along.  Makes perfect sense IMO.

  • I have wondered this myself! I always just think 4 weeks in a month so I've been saying I am now 7 months, but according to the calculator I am 6.44

    GOOD TO KNOW!

  • I see why people say that pregnancy is 9 months now. lol

    Yeah, 4 weeks = 1 month also lends itself to the 10 months of pregnancy myth too.  If you think about your LMP to EDD though, it's 9 months, 1 week (example - mine is 11/18 to 8/25 - 9 months, 7 days).  So the math ends up that each "month" of pregnancy is actually 4.32 weeks.  Over those 6 months, the 0.324... weeks (which is about 2.3 days) push it out a couple more weeks.  2.3 days x 6 months = nearly 14 days.  That's a whole half a month unaccounted for in the 4 weeks = 1 month math, in just the first two trimesters.

    Isn't it 4 weeks =/= a month?  There are usually about 4.5/5 weeks in a month.

     Yes.  4 weeks =/= 1 month.  Per my total nerd math above, there are 4.324 weeks in a month.  Or 4 weeks, 2.3 days on average.

  • Still so confused on this. I am due on 8/23, so wouldn' t my 9 month start on 7/23?  that way you are in your 9th month?  Am i just looking at this all wrong?

    You're only pregnant for 9 months (+ 7 days).  Not for 10 months.  You don't "start your 9th month" on 7/23...you're 9 months pregnant when you're due, and maaaaybe/arguably the week before - b/c you've been pregnant for 9 months at that point.

    The confusion is people thinking that they're pregnant for 10 months when they're not.  You're due 8/23, so your LMP was what?  11/16?  11/16 to 8/23 is 9 months 7 days, not 10 months.
