    I go with the beginning number…so tomorrow I will be 18 weeks because today I am 17w6d…if that makes sense.

    I would base it on how you want to take your last picture… you probably (?) want to take your last picture like, a week before the baby is born (so the first day of your last week) because I am sure it will be hectic and to my limited knowledge unless you have a scheduled cesarian the baby could come any day!  But you will want to label it your last week, so you have that picture.


    So I would put 8 now… does that make sense?

    I would put 7 weeks because you are in fact 7 weeks, not 8 weeks. In terms of development there is a

    big difference between those 7 days.

    I do the completed weeks, not the week that I am beginning. 🙂

    I would go with 7 as you are 7 weeks

    like on my birthday in march, i’ll be 31 on that day but in my 32nd year, I wouldn’t put 32 on the chalkboard 🙂

    your baby is 7 weeks grown, not 8 weeks grown 🙂

    The counting took me awhile to get a hang of but technically you are now a full 7 weeks heading into week 8 so you probably want to say 7. tomorrow you will be 7w1d. Next Sunday you will be 8 weeks.

    Every website you use for development tracking counts it as completed weeks. So when you are 7 weeks you are actually 7 weeks developed and in your 8th week. So today I am 23weeks and 4 days. On wednesday I will take my 24 weeks photo!

    How many weeks you are is how many weeks you have completed. THink of it like your bithday. When you turn 21, you’ve completed 21 full years of life and are entering your 22 year of life. So, you are 7 weeks.
