## Patient discussion about calculous

**Q. How do you calculate the weeks of a pregnancy?** I'm confused! My Doctor calculates my pregnancy by weeks and my friends and family through months. Can someone tell me how it goes exactly? Are there 4 weeks every month, if so then there should be 36 weeks not 40?!

**A.**Each pregnancy month doesn't have exactly 4 weeks as a regular month. Its divided more into trimesters which each trimester is between 12-14 weeks long.

**Q. how do i determine what is the right weight i need to be? i know there is a way to calculate it, an equation ** , what are the parameters in it ?

**A.**I don't mean to burst any bubbles, but BMI is definitely not a good way to determine what weight you should be.
