I'm 31 weeks my due date is December 4th, how many months am I?

I've done research some websites say I'm 8 months some say I'm 7 months and 3 weeks

  • Your 7 and 3 weeks. I'm due the 2nd.
  • I agree with PP. I am due Dec 2nd. I am 31 weeks currently and my doc says I will be 8 months at 32 weeks (next wed!), then 9 months at 36 weeks.
  • I'm also due December 2nd and was wondering how many months I was
  • You are at the end of your seventh month.

    I tried to explain to my MIL that I am starting my seventh month as I was exactly 28 weeks when we were having the conversation. And she and several of her SILs were like counting the months on their hand, instistent that I could not possibly be seven months because that would make me due in Nov and blah, blah, blah. I basically had to break down to them that they were counting my seventh month as already complete, but I was like on day one. hahaha

    I like the week chart better. It is so much simpler. The closer I get to 40 the happier I am. :-) Who cares about the months? haha

  • I haven't thought too hard about this. It's too confusing for this already confused pregnant brain. I just know when I get to 40 weeks baby will be good to go (hopefully). Lol

  • I never realized how confusing the weeks are for people.

    Before I got pregnant and someone told me 31 weeks, for example, I would think to myself "ok, pregnancy is 40 weeks, halfway is 20, so they're 3/4 done with their pregnancy."

    So when I tell people how far along I am in weeks and I get blank stares, I don't get it. But when I say months, they always think I'm due earlier than I am!

    I took a screenshot of the graphic above a few months ago and I've just been using that.

  • Yesss @satindawl83 !

    Everyone is always confused (including me) when I tell them how far along I am. Lol
  • Most people assume months have four weeks. Nope. 52/12=4.333. Sometimes your next month starts in the middle of your pregnancy week.

    Graphic above is good. There are a lot of them. Google images for "pregnancy months breakdown graphic."

    Here's another one.

  • Haha people aren't thinking of how 40
    Weeks is actually 10
    Months not 9 either!

    This. Thank you! It drives me nuts that people get this wrong. It's how you can say 40 weeks is a 9 month pregnancy (though technically it's more like 9 months and 1 week). BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT 28 DAYS IN EVERY MONTH!

    *edited for spelling. See thread on grammar...spelling is also important! Lol

  • This cracks me up because some people get all upset when I say I'm 30 weeks and they want to hear how many months along I am. I think that's so ridiculous because they don't want to do the math or whatever, but pregnancy is generally measured in weeks, so I'll be like, I don't know 7 months or something.
