# How to Calculate How Many Months Pregnant

It not very difficult to calculate how far along your pregnancy is. All you have to do is recall the date of your last menstrual period. In case you are not able to recall it, then try to remember some incident or activity which you did at that time. Try all means to get the exact date which was the first day of your menstrual period.

#### Steps To Calculate The Age Of The Growing Fetus:

The steps to calculate the age of the growing fetus are as follows:

- Once you have the date of the first day of your last menstrual period, then calculate the number of weeks that have passed from that date including the current week. For instance, the day when you had your last period was Monday. So count all the time from then until the particular day on which you are calculating. The number you have calculated will be used in the next step.
- The number you got in the above step will determine the number of weeks you are pregnant and if you will divide this number by 4.34, then you will get the number of months you have been pregnant for. For example, if you are 16 weeks pregnant, then you have been carrying a baby for 3.68 months, which is a little more than 3 months.
- As each week passes from Monday (the first day of your last period), just add it in your calculation and you will keep on increasing the age in months and weeks of your developing baby.
