How Pregnant Am I? Pregnancy by Weeks, Months, Trimesters

Figuring out how far along you are is an unfortunately complicated task for a few reasons.  One reason being, the first two weeks of pregnancy you are not actually pregnant.  Those are the two weeks between your last period and ovulation, but they count towards the 40 weeks of pregnancy.  Another reason being, not every month has the same number of weeks.  If every month had 4 weeks, like many believe, then you would only have 36 weeks. 

How to Calculate Due Date

In order to calculate your due date, you'll need to know either the date of conception or the date of your last menstrual cycle.  The due date will be 40 weeks after the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP) or 38 weeks after the date of conception.  To make things simpler, use a due date calculator like the one like this one.
