I'm 23 weeks as of today and just recently found out the sex of my child. I go by the weeks but usually when someone ask Mr how many months I just say the week instead. Can someone help me out please.

Aww, I was so excited because I hoped this was a legit post! I get so confused because there is conflicting data on Google about months to weeks. FTM flag showing! I was hoping for a general consensus whether it was 4 weeks = 1 month (leading to 10 months of pregnancy) or if on the same date each month you change months (leading to 9 months and a couple days pregnant). I'be spent too much time searching Google and never found a consensus. I just picked changing months on the same date each month. Is that what y'all do?

I agree that it's not necessarily a stupid question @Spicyweiner although personally I don't care at all. It's just not something I think about, I know lots of people want to know that. But seriously- Google. Or randoms or something. Just made me roll my eyes this morning.

While this is is definitely something that could be googled or dropped in the randoms thread, I actually think it's a valid question.
Many people find confusion in figuring out the "months" since pregnancy is measured in weeks and not our typical calendar month that we are used to.

4 weeks in a month.  Take your number in  weeks and ÷ 4.
I mean,  math was always my toughest subject so I don't know,  I may be wrong.

ETA: This is one of those questions where being the child of Indian parents gets you slapped in the face.

There isn't 4 weeks in a calendar month. It's 4 and a half.
Thats why people get confused, but thanks for the math lesson :::insert major eyeroll here:::
Yeah. Wut?

I'm actually surprised to see I'm considered 6 months pregnant... woot! I'll take it!

Well ya, there's never exactly 4 weeks in a month.....obviously.  We all know that at this age. ..but OP could get an  easy estimate that way.
Anyways....

OR you could say my lmp is x date (mine was the 11th) and I change how many months I am on that x date. I'll be 6 months on the 11th of November.

Well after all this discussion,  I guess it wasn't a stupid question after all.  Too bad this was a drive by.

Not a dumb question at all, would've been a perfect discussion for Randoms or anywhere else. The annoying part is that it was a drive by by someone who started a thread and didn't stick around to discuss their own topic
