Technically if you think about it, it's not 10 month. At 40 weeks you hit the 10 month mark, but you are pregnant for a full 9. 40wks is the end of 9 months

10 lunar months. There are 4 weeks in a lunar month, but in a calendar month there are usually 30-31 days which is clearly more than 4 weeks (only 28 days). So 10 lunar months and 9 calendar months.
