Go to this link where you put in your LMP and it will give you a week by week account from LMP to your 42nd week. It also gives great info on what is going on with your baby at what week specific to your due date. Check it out..http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/pregna...blpregcalc.htm
Thanks for the url...
According to that I was right in saying I'll be in my 7th week by Christmas. But my Dr. Sears Pregnancy book counts the weeks differently- instead of counting from LMP they count from ovulation/conception. So according to Sears, by Christmas I would be only 5 weeks! I like the sound of 7 much better.
I guess in the Sears book they are saying gestation is 38 weeks, but most places say it's 40 if you count from LMP. It'd be easier if there was a standard!
