Yeah the whole "months" thing is so confusing. But I'm excited that we are all getting so close. I'm due at the end of the month, so I have a bit longer of a wait. I'm hoping this baby stays an April baby, but I'm telling myself I'm due on May 9th just in case I make it to 42 weeks.
Ha Elizabeth, I'm the opposite! I am convinced this baby will go early (for NO reason other than because T did) so I tell everyone I'm due "at the end of March". A little rounding, is all. LOL
Yes, I mostly stick with the weekly count too.
I think I figured out how it works out to 9 months though. If you count from your conception date to a little past your due date, that is 9 months. Example, I think I conceived on or around July 10. So from July 10 - Aug 10 = 1 month
Aug 10 = 1
Sep 10 = 2
Oct 10 = 3
Nov 10 = 4
Dec 10 = 5
Jan 10 = 6
Feb 10 = 7
March 10 = 8
April 10 (8 days after my due date) = 9
That makes my head hurt just becuase it's so far off from the weekly counting, I have a hard time reconciling the 2.
My timing rational is about like this.. unofficially of course..
When I have a MASSIVE breakdown that I can't breath.. eat.. poop.. sleep.. work or keep swelling away, it'll be about time.
But I'm just as obsessed, literally.
I felt like I was pregnant with my son forever...literally...it was like never ending. Then DH looks at me today and goes Holy **** we only have 13 weeks left. Where has the time gone? I mean I could say that because I have my 6 year old that i'm more focused on him and that is what is making time fly, but...my step son lived with us full time when I was pregnant with my son and the hubby was in the Navy so I was just as busy taking care of him as I am taking care of the two of them now, and that throws that whole way of thinking right out the window. lol
