My midwife doesn't go by months either. I think it is the norm for them to go by weeks instead. Weeks don't vary but when going by months, every source says the particular month begins various weeks. I hope that made sense.

Hi All,

To the best of my knowledge all doctors tend to go by weeks gestation and not months. Like your doctor said, full term gestation is 40 weeks.

I have 5 children as well as i worked in L&D for 7 years and not once did i ever hear a doctor refer to any pregnancies duration in months...always weeks gestations.

I guess standard medical practice.

Good luck to all of you,

No doc goes by months. your pregnancy is 40 weeks long the docs measure your progress in weeks.
