My husband and I are sitting here trying to figure this out…
I am 11 weeks, 3 days. On the pregnancy website I visit (American Pregnancy.org), there are week by week updates. They are titled “first week of pregnancy” and so on.
So here is the question…Am I in my “11th week of pregnancy”? Or am I in my “12th week of pregnancy”???

I thought so too, but then my husband brought up a good point…what was I around 5 days into my pregnancy? I was IN week 1, right?

Yep. If you’re 11wXd, you’re in your 11th week.

I think you’re in week 12. You are on the 3rd day of your 12th week. If you are 11 weeks and 3 days, that means you have already completed your 11th week.

nah. see you already had your 11th week. you ARE 11 weeks. but also 3 days. which means you’re into your 12th week.

I think “In” your 12th week because you’re halfway through week 12.

Haha I just entered my due date in TheBump and go with what they tell me…! 🙂
Based on that, I’d say you’re in week 11.

I also would think you’re in your 12th week. When you turned 22 on your birthday, let’s say, you had completed 22 years of living. Then, you entered day 1 of year 23. wouldn’t it chronologically be measured similarly for pregnancy?

@sorrycharlie: perfect analogy! 🙂

you’re in your 12th week. right now youve completed 11 weeks 3 days of pregnancy. at the end of this week youll have completed 12 weeks – hence being 12 weeks pregnant.

@heathaah: It’s just like your age.
Once you turn, say, 26, you have completed 26 years of life, meaning you are now going through your 27th year.
It’s the same with pregnancy, you are 11 weeks, so you have completed 11 weeks of pregnancy, which means you are in your 12th week. At the end of your 12 weeks, you will officially be “12 weeks along”.
I hope that makes sense! It made my brain hurt when I first tried to figure it out as well.

If you are 11 weeks and 3 days you are in your 11th week of pregnancy. Just like today is september 26th and this is the 9th month of the year, we dont call it the 10th month after september 1st.

@sunshine_kar: With both of my pregnancies I was 11 weeks until I was 11 weeks and 7 days. That was how I always understood it.
@Bells -great explaination!
