    Default counting the weeks

    do you know when you are counting how far along you are how many days in a week? sounds silly, but i have my OB app booked and need to know how many weeks/days i will be then (need to let my family dr know and make sure she is ok with me seeing hthe ob that late still)


    so does it go 5 weeks 7 days, or at 5 weeks 7 days do you swich to 6 weeks? would 5 weeks 8 days be considered the same as 6 weeks...is this when it switches over? looks like i will be 26 weeks and 2 days... app is for Monday october 26. Wed oct 21 i will be 25 weeks and 4 days...so is my math right that on mon oct 26 i would be 26 weeks 2 days? just a concern bc of the rhogham shot i need to have done at 28 weeks...wondering if this gives the ob enough time after she sees me to book it and get paper work in on time to the hospital...HELP! i know this sounds like a super silly question, but my dr was concerned i was seeing the ob so late bc of my thyroid issues and the rhogham shot as welll..just want to make sure i am counting my days correctly so that when i call to let my family dr know when i am seeing the ob that i know exactly how far along i will be so that she can decide if this is soon enough for me to be seeing the ob.

    After 5 weeks 6 days comes 6 weeks. The 7th day is the new beginning of the week and you would just be 6 weeks. Then 6 weeks 1 day, 6 weeks 2 days, 6 weeks 3 days, 6 weeks 4 days, 6 weeks 5 days 6 weeks 6 days then 7 weeks. And so on.
