id say the nurse is right,you are 6 months.ok work it like this:when you are 4 wks you are 1 month.8 wks 2 months,12wks 3 months.16wks 4 months.20wks 5months,24wks 6 months,so 25wks makes you 6months 1 wk.....make sense? good luck!

no, there is 4 weeks in one month. You were 5 months prego at 20 wks. 5x4 = 20......your over 6 months now.

Raquel, first off, a month is more than 4 weeks. It works out to 4.33 weeks (52 weeks/12), or 13 weeks in 3 months ( At 25 weeks you are in your sixth month but have not completed it yet. So you are 5 months and you are now in your sixth. When you will complete your sixth month, and your second trimester it will be at the end of 26 weeks and at the beginning of the 27th week. At that time, you will be exactly 6 months. I hope this clears it up some

if your 25 weeks prego, that means that you have been pregnant for 6 months and 1 week...NO MATTER HOW YOU WANT TO VIEW IT. When are you due?

 

BBK - May 11

S, if what you say is true, that would put her in the 3rd trimester, and that's not the case

 

BBK - May 11

SO IN OTHER WORDS IAM BEGINING MY 6 MONTHS 26-27 I'LL BE ENDING MY SECOND TRIMESTER IS THAT RIGHT

 

BBK - May 11

Exactly! If a months was 4 weeks, then every month would have 28 days, and we all know that's not the case

 

s - May 11

well maybe i'm confused too!!!lol....i'm 22 weeks, so what does that make me?

 

BBK - May 11

S, at 22 weeks, you just entered your sixth month. So you are 5 months and 1 week

 

BBK - May 11

OK, the confusion occurs, because some pregnancy months have to become 5 weeks long to accomodate the leftover days......

WE SEE WHO'S THE EXPERT HERE IAM DUE AUG 24 CAN I SAY I CONCEIVED ON NOV,22 2004 BBK SINCE YOUR THE EXPERT

 

BBK - May 11

Raquel, I'm just bored.... wow, by own Bday is 8/25! According to my calculations, you would have conceived around Dec 1st give or take. Your LMP should have been Nov 17, which is exactly 40 weeks from your due date.

When you say I am one month pregnant you are not talking about a typical calendar month that maybe longer or shorter than 4 weeks, you are talking about 4 weeks pregnant. So if you are 20 weeks pregnant, you are 5 months. 25 weeks pregnant you are 6 months and 1 week. Don't think of it like a calendar month, think of it like a general 4 week month. Hope that makes sense! Good luck. And your doc might have just gotten confused, you know how many patients they see in one day...

 

.....thanks... - May 11

that's exaclty how i was looking at it. Makes since to me!
