So if I'm 27 weeks pregnant, how many months am I?
This is not a riddle. I really dont know the answer.
I've been saying I'm 5 1/2 months
but that cant be right if I only have 3 months left...
*Update*
I had a doctor's appointment today.
He didn't clear anything up.
28-30 weeks is considered 7 months, according to him.
He said I'm at the tail end of my 6th month.
Who really cares. I'm almost sorry I tried to figure it out!

I counted like every 4 1/2 weeks equals one month, so if you only have 3 months left, then you're 6 months! woohoo!!

I have that your 6 months and 3 weeks. What is your due date and I can find out for sure on my works handy dandy pregnancy wheel.

Wow Jill. I thought you looked great, but now that I know you are 6 mo.+ 3 weeks? Well, now I'm downright jealous.

I've always found the count down a little confusing because the weeks don't match up with the whole 9 months things. Since full term is 40 weeks, I guess you can count backwards from there and know that you have 13 weeks left which is about 3 months left. (since there are more than 28 days in most months.) Anyway, the bottom line is....you're on the home stretch!! Yeah!!

I always look at dates. My due date is May 7th so on Feb. 7th I will be 6 months. You are way into your 6th month!!! Counting by weeks is better anyway. Start getting ready!!!

I vote for the 1st week of your 7th month. You are getting close! I'm excited for you.

Amanda said...

it's a lie! you're really pregnant for 10 months...if you go by weeks! 4 weeks in a month...40 weeks...10 months! Either way, it's a LONG time.

The McKell Spot said...

going by your due date (and the 10 month chart) you are 7 months and 3 weeks either way you have 12 weeks to go and that is less than 3 months!! Woo Hoo!

I just started counting back from the end- so I say if you're due the 25th, then starting January 25th you are 6 months, or in your 7th month!

I think whatever you can do that makes it seem less in the end...do it! I kept thinking yah 9 months no....its really 10 months....why dont they just say that! You're well into your last trimester though Jilly! Yeah! Cant wait!
