Maybe I'll change my mind once I'm raising 3 babies.
I can't imagine having HG - the bad m/s I get is quite enough, tyvm!

Sorta... depends on how you count things. 12 weeks, for me, was 2.5 months along (I am due on the 14th, so each 14th is the next month and each 1st is the half month, kwim?). At 11 weeks you would be 2 months along (in your 3rd month), and would be 3 months along somewhere around 13-14 weeks.

If they absolutely HAVE to know the month I would say I was three months at 13 weeks (4X3) + 1 = 13! I'm a math nerd, though. But remember that months don't ACTUALLY have 4 weeks but more like 4 weeks and 2-3 days. Oh no, my nerdiness is leaking LOL
I know weeks, and DH does, but often people have no clue. I'll say whatever weeks and they try to just adjust that by x by 4 - which is not right at all.

Yes, months are 4 weeks + 2 or 3 days (except Feb). So it all depends on which months you are pregnant for as to which day, technically, you change months.

As for months, I figure there are an average of 4 weeks in a month, so at 12 weeks, I was 3 months. That's not mathematically correct, I guess.. but it doesn't matter. I tell people in weeks anyways.
As long as you're going to 10 months pregnant, 12 weeks = 3 months But going by 9 months, it's somewhere between 13-14 weeks.

Funny enough, I will be both 14 weeks and 3 months along on October 14th.

Do you dress up yourself?

and she got very little of her candy last year and will get very little this year. I'm not anti-candy - we love candy. I just hate worrying about if I brushed her teeth well enough.
We try not to spend too much, but our kids also continue to play dress up with their costumes after halloween is over, so we get more than one wear out of them.

We let each kid pick 3 treats after t&ting, then everything goes into a bucket. Each day the kids get to pick one thing to take for after lunch at school. Sometimes they get one thing after supper too, depending on how the day/meal goes.
Our candy usually lasts a l.o.n.g time this way. Often into spring and even summer some years!
