One website says 27 weeks, another 28, and yet another says 29! Why is this a grey area?

Not totally sure on why there is so much difference, I think it might be different ways of determining. Like, dividing 40 weeks by 3, or baby developmental stages, plus they've probably just changed over time so there is the old ways and new ways. Whatever it is, it's annoying! I think I just went by 27 :wink:

Each trimester is 13.3 weeks long, so I went with 27 weeks because it would ammount to 26.6 if you divided it up
