36 weeks is how many months

Mom Answers (31)


7days = 1 week 4 weeks = 28 days Most months have 30-31 days(not including Feb.) Therefore there are more than 4 weeks In 1 month and when you add up all the extra days they generally make 4 weeks.

Babies are typically born 38 weeks (91/2 months) after conception. Conception typically occurs two weeks after your LMP. The due date is figured using your LMP, so is set 40 weeks after your LMP (2 weeks between LMP and conception + 38 weeks for development). As to why we always hear about babies being born after 9 months, I'm not sure about that either. Maybe because that is the shortest length of time (36 weeks) that is considered normal gestation?

For a pregnancy you are a FULL NINE MONTHS PREGNANT. In the beginning of each set of weeks you are starting a new month, example, when you are 1 week pregnant you are currently beginning your first month and haven't completed it until you are 4 weeks. When you are into your 4th week of pregnancy you are starting your second month but do not complete it until you are 8 weeks, and so on. When you get to be 36 weeks, you have BEGUN your 9th month, but do not complete the 9th month until you are 40 weeks. Which means you are pregnant until you begin your 10th month. And for those who go past their due dates are unfortuanlty pregnant for no more than 2 weeks INTO their tenth month but aren't A FULL ten months pregnant. Week 1-4 = 1 month Week 4-8 = 2 months Week 8-12 = 3 months Week 12-16 = 4 months Week 16-20 = 5 months Week 20-24 = 6 months Week 24-28 = 7 months Week 28-32 = 8 months Week 32-36 = 9 months Week 36-40= 10 months

36 weeks isn't 9 months, it's only 8.3 months! Any time in your pregnancy, if you know how many weeks you are and you want to know how many months you are, just Google "how many months is ____ weeks?" and it will do the conversion for you. Very handy.

If you start counting weeks around the time you ovulate then you have your baby at about 9 1/2 months (38 wks) or maybe 9 months 1 wk for some but it all depends on when you ovulate and when baby is conceived. Doctor says 40 weeks which is 10 months technically but you technically are not pregnant on the first day of your last period which is how they estimate how many weeks you are. So knock two or three weeks off that and due date is about right for 9 months.

To answer your question... 9 months= 39.11 weeks 9.21 months= 40 weeks 10 months= 43.5 weeks Think about it. There are not just 28 days (4weeks) in a month. There are 4 weeks and 2-3 days normally. 52 weeks in a year, not just 48. So if you are pregnant for the exact amount of time that you should be then you are pregnant for 9months and about a week. A majority of mommy's give birth a week before to a week after their due date which still ranges in the 9 month range. But we are not pregnant for 10 months. Your body stops receiving nutrients in the womb at 40 weeks which is why they will induce at 41 weeks of you haven't given birth yet.

Normal pregnancy length is between 40 and 42 weeks. Hack off the two weeks added on because of the false belief that all women have 28-day cycles and ovulate on CD 14, and you have 38 - 40 weeks' gestation. (With the average length actually being slightly over 41 weeks.) Thirty-six weeks is NOT TERM. If you had your baby now, it would be what is called a "near term preemie", and there are health risks associated with that. To say that pregnancy is 9 months long is really just a rough estimate--note that you have an ESTIMATED due date.

When you are 9 months you don't give birth just yet because 40 weeks are 10 months. I am 24 weeks 6 months but I have 3 months and 21 days left so when I arrive on my 9 month I still need to count 21 days to complete the month other wise 9 month is only the end of the 8

please keep in mind that some months have 5 weeks not just 4 ............. your first tri. is 13 weeks not 12

They probably set the due day for 40 weeks so that they know the baby is fully developed
