Some people calculate from the moment of conception, others start at the first day of their last period. Sometimes it's a quick math calculation of how much time your have left in pregnancy and some moms don't ever bother with months.

- I guess the actual way to calculate is from ur ovulation period which comes two weeks after mensis. Conception cannot take place before ovulation. Like ur last period was on the 28 of Dec. 2012 and u missed ur period which shld be on the 24th of Jan, this means that u are jst two weeks pregnant.

works for me
- I have always calulated it by looking ahead to the same day on the next month. Like, the last day of my period this time was February 1st, so I count myself as one month pregnant on March 1st, two months on April 1st and so on. It's the middle of August so I say I'm about 6 1/2 months pregnant. You can do this if you calculate starting from last period or date of conception depending on how important the technicalities are to you.

- I was told that you figure out the months by taking how many weeks you are (like say 17) and dividing it by 4.3 (thats the number of weeks in an average month) so at 17 weeks you would be 3.95 months pregnant.
Skip the first two weeks...
- Since I'm not really pregnant those first two weeks, I usually say I'm one month pregnant until I'm six weeks and go every four after that.

It depends on my mood...
- I know it sounds crazy but how I calculate months depends on my mood. If I'm enjoying pregnancy I usually calculate lower months but if I'm tired or hurting, I calculate higher. I also have been known to calculate higher to seem very pregnant, you know, someone asks me to do something I'm not sure I want to do like attend a function, so I say "Oh I'm 8 months pregnant, I don't know..." As opposed to saying I'm 33 weeks or something.
