I need some help as a first time mum, i have asked various people and get different replies and i would feel rather stupid phoning my midwife up to ask this Q but its another 1.5 weeks till i see her and i cant wait that long!
Im 33 weeks pregnant - how many months does that make me?!
Are you 9 months at 36 weeks which means you are due to give birth at the end of the 9th month or are you 8 months at 35 weeks which means you are due to give birth at the start of month 9?!
HELP ME PLEASE!!!
Sounds daft i know but i keep wondering what i am meant to say when people ask "how far along are you?!"
You can't equate weeks to months in pregnancy - you are pregnant for 40 weeks (well you're not, but as they date it from your period they call it 40 weeks) and there aren't 4 weeks in a month.
So you can either work back from when you're due (ie tell people you've got nearly 2 months to go) or tell them approximately how many months (eg 33 weeks is approx 7.5 months, as you still have about 7 weeks or so to go) you are.
