Confuse about what Month I'm in??

I'm 22 weeks but I am so confuse as to what pregnancy month I'm in. I Google it but some websites say I'm 5 months and others say 6 month..Some start the count down from your LMP an others from when you missed you last period.. does anyone know what the correct way of keeping track of your months? Or what are you going by?

I'm 23 weeks and I think we are officially 5 months pregnant but in our 6th month so we are not fully "6 months" til 26 weeks I think it said. The whole thing is quite confusing lol

Start by the lmp. Take the number of weeks and days you are and divide by 4.3. At 23 weeks we are 5 1/2 months.

They start counting the moment you conceived that is why they ask for ur last period. But the most accurate way to find out how far you are is by asking the technician because they go by the size of the baby. But every 4 weeks is another month so if u are 22 weeks than you are 5 Months and 2 weeks. Pregnancy actually last for 10 months because it is a total of 40 weeks. Hope that made sense to u

Weeks 22-26 is month 6. I'm in month 6 at almost 24 weeks. Do not calculate your months every 4 weeks.

That's what I thought that at 22 weeks it the 1st week of the 6 months but some ppl are telling me I'm 5. The calendar on line says I'm 6. And a pregnancy app I have on my phone says I'm 6, since I turned 2 weeks

Okay, think of it like this- you are 5 months pregnant but you are in your 6th month of pregnancy. Does that make sense? You're working on your 6th month, but you haven't completed the 6th month yet so you're technically only 5 still.

When you're at the end of 24 weeks, you will be 6 months pregnant, but just starting your 7th month.

At the end of 28 weeks, you will be 7 months preggo, starting the 8th.

End of 32 weeks= 8 months, starting 9th

End of 36 weeks= 9 months, starting 10

I hope this helps.

Also, there's 2 ways to figure which month your in.

What I wrote above ^^^ is going off of the 4 week to a month/ 10 month/ lunar calendar system. Most people calculate their pregnancy this way. Every 4 weeks starts the new month that you're working on.

The other way to do it is to literally divide the 40 weeks into 9 calendar months (which is more than every 4 weeks). It's much more Compmicated that way.
