It is not always so easy to just calculate how many months you have been carrying your baby or which trimester you are in as the calculations of a pregnancy calendar is a little different than that of regular weeks and months. For instance, a month in pregnancy can consist of five weeks instead of four. So, it is quite common to get confused about how many months pregnant you are at a certain week.
|Which Trimester||How Many Months||How many Weeks|
|First||1||1-2, 3, 4|
|2||5, 6, 7, 8|
|3||9, 10, 11, 12, 13|
|Second||4||14, 15, 16, 17|
|5||18, 19, 20, 21|
|6||22, 23, 24, 25, 26|
|Third||7||27, 28, 29, 30|
|8||31, 32, 33, 34, 35|
|9||36, 37, 38, 39, 40|
