Your fetus will go through a long journey from small embryo to full-term baby inside your womb. It will undergo a whole evolution. You will change – your body will develop and so will your mind. For every week that passes from now on, so many things will happen that it is a whole new world to dive into.
The weeks are indicative and show only how your pregnancy can proceed. Women are different, fetuses and children are different and pregnancies are different, and therefore there will be places where the weeks may. overlap or are too early / late in relation to your pregnancy. The weeks are based on you having 1 child and not twins or triplets.
During pregnancy you may experience many different symptoms and it is not always that you can read for a good answer in books or on the internet, so remember that if in doubt, call your doctor or midwife!
Pregnancy Length – How Many Weeks?
Illustration of pregnant in weeks 4, 14, 28, 32 and 39, respectively.
A pregnancy is often said to last 9 months or 40 weeks. However, 9 months is not a completely correct term for the length of a pregnancy, as the length of a month can vary in the number of days. So it is mostly correct to say a pregnancy lasts 40 weeks or the equivalent of 280 days.
And even though that’s what many people say, it’s actually not that long before you are actually pregnant. The first 2 weeks of what is calculated for the length of pregnancy, you are not yet pregnant. You can read more about this in our week by week starting with week 1 + 2.
