My sister reported back from her Christmas trip home to Minnesota that there were some rumblings in the family about how I could be 8 months pregnant already if I’m due in February… 🙂 I’m just going by the emails I get people! But for further explanation, here’s how the Medical Dictionary explains it:
“Pregnancy lasts approximately 266 days, or 38 weeks from the day of fertilization, but is considered clinically to last 280 days, or 40 weeks, or 10 lunar months, or 9⅓ calendar months from the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP).”
Make sense? Kind of? Just go with it. This baby is going to be here before we know it!
