Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

6 1/2 months 
Actually that isn't accurate.  People tend to use the 4 weeks per month approximation. That equates to 28 days per month which we all know only happens in February. Most months are between 30 and 31 days.  If you are 6.5 months at 26 weeks then you will be 10 months at 40 weeks, full term.  This shows how innaccruate the approximation is in the long run. I found that a more accurate estimate is using 4.4 weeks per month.  So actually you are just under 6 months.(You'll get 4.4 by dividing 40 weeks by 9 months)
