    40 divided by 4 = 10! There are 4 weeks in a month and nine months of pregnancy (or 40 weeks!!).

    I figure the mismatch is due to us having 2 or 3 extra days in every month (30 or 31 rather than 28) and the 2 weeks they count as pregnancy BEFORE conception.

    So.....

    I go in weeks but kind of loosely figure it into months if someone looks confused (ie 20 weeks is half way through so I'll say 4 1/2 months because that is half of 9 months etc). At 23 weeks I'm saying that I'm 5 months gone if saying it in weeks makes folk look confoosed.

    I just stick to weeks, trying to work it out in months is far too confusing. Doesn't sound so far along in months either

    Definitely stick with weeks. As Floppit mentioned, you can't fit whole weeks into a single month so using months becomes inaccurate. It's good for a rough guide when someone asks how pregnant you are, it's easier to reply with "Oh, nearly 6 months" than say 26 weeks or whatever.

    I say how far along in weeks but remember that some months have 4 weeks and some have 5 so I go by the 10th of the month too like Gemma, so 10th December we will be 6 months :D
