How To Calculate The Age Of 7 Months Of Pregnancy?
Good evening doctor … I am currently 27 weeks pregnant. The first time of my last menstrual period was March 16, 2019. I had a different opinion regarding the time of pregnancy count with my brother who was also pregnant. I want to ask, how is the right 7 month pregnancy count doctor? How many weeks can a person be said to be 7 months pregnant? Is it if the beginning of conception is 16th, does it mean that every 16th pregnancy increases by 1 month? Please enlighten me, doctor. Thank you.
Good morning, thanks for the question
Gestational age is more commonly used by counting the weeks from the first day of the last menstruation. Knowing the gestational age is necessary to estimate the time of delivery in which labor enters the full month of age if it enters 36 to 41 weeks' gestation. Calculations using the moon can be different because in one month consists of 28-31 days, so it is more accurate to use age based on the week.
If your HPHT is 16 March 2019, your current pregnancy is 28 weeks. Gestational age according to HPHT is best confirmed by ultrasound examination in the first trimester because it has the best accuracy compared to examinations in trimesters 2 and 3. Therefore it is highly recommended for pregnant women to check their contents immediately after knowing a positive pregnancy test pack.
That's all, hope you can help.
