13 Weeks- Second Trimester... I Think

Today is 13 weeks. I can not believe this day has actually come. I told Brian in the begining of the pregnancy that I just wanted to make it past 12 weeks. So here we are and I am so excited about it. I have also come to learn something. Brian has been trying to tell me this for weeks but I was not listening to him because I thought I was right, go figure! So let me try to explain this as well as I can because I am still a little confused about it myself. Lets say for example that a woman is 11 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Well I thought that she would be in her 11th week.... NO she is actually in her 12 week. At 11 weeks, she has completed the 11th week and at 11 weeks 1 day she is starting her 12th week. So basically tomorrow I will be starting my 14th week of pregnancy. Now why don't we say that I am in my 14th week instead of 13 weeks 1 day. This is all so confusing! To much for me to take in.... So Brian, honey, you were right, for once!

Also we registered for a birthing class. I don't really know what to think of it though, it is from 9am to 5pm. Its like going to work...CRAZY! I guess we will learn alot and I am excited about seeing the hospital and all that jazz. We will be around 17 weeks when we go to the class.

Yeah, it's crazy. Just think of it this way... when you are three and a half months pregnant you are halfway through the fourth month. By the time you complete the fourth month, you are actually four months pregnant. It does make sense in a crazy math-centered way... I just prefer to say the actual week or month that I have completed, hehe.
