    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    another thing, im so confused when it comes to this "trimester" what month are you thing? i am 21 weeks which to me means that im almost at my 5 month mark, but i go on here and look up my month by weeks and its telling me that im 6 months so lost. alot of my friends dont get the "weeks" thing so im not sure where i am

    A lot of people don't realize that pregnancy is 40 weeks long. So going strictly off weeks, it's 10 months. I'm at 21 weeks too and I'm just telling people I'm 5 months... I don't think there is really a correct answer for this. Just go with what you're comfortable with.

    Weeks 0-12 (months 1-3) = 1st Trimester

    Weeks 13-25 (months 4-6) = 2nd Trimester

    Weeks 26-40 (months 7-9) = 3rd trimester

    At 21 weeks, you would be 4 months and 1 week pregnant (though I just said 4 months. At 4 months 2 weeks, I said 4 1/2 and so on).

    The weeks get a little confusing for me sometimes too (and this is my 2nd go around). I typically just go off of the month. Though it has been a little easier since I uploaded this app (from bbc) that tells me when I move up each week, and little updates. Its nice.

    Actually it's:

    Weeks 0-12 for the 1st trimester

    Weeks 13-27 is the 2nd trimester

    Weeks 28-40 plus is the 3rd trimester.
