5th month is week 18 to week 21....according to lmp you can calculate your edd 9 months+7days....did you complete your 20 weeks according to usg date because in usg it can come +/-2weeks according to the growth of baby

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi preeti...
ha ha ha yes it is confusing for all moms..
To understand this, it may help to think about age. When a baby is one year old, he has finished his first year of being alive. This means that he will be one year old during his second year of life. Similarly, when you complete your first week of pregnancy, you are one week pregnant. So you will be one week pregnant during your second week.
It's all about completing each week - putting one week behind you and starting another one. Therefore: 
in your first week you are zero weeks pregnant, in your second week you are one week pregnant, in your third week you are two weeks pregnant,in your fourth week you are three weeks pregnant in your fifth week you are four weeks pregnant.
so no need to worry be calm and enjoy this period
