How Many Weeks is One Month Pregnant?
Pregnancy is generally measured in lunar months (4 weeks long), rather than calendar months which are all different lengths and, apart from February, four weeks and a few days. So, one month pregnant is four weeks. For the purposes of this calendar, we have included weeks 5 to 7 of pregnancy (the weeks between one and two months) in the developments and symptoms at one month pregnant.

I am One Month Pregnant – What Should I Do?
Take really good care of yourself! Get lots of rest, eat well, and don’t let yourself get anxious and stressed. You should also make an appointment to see your regular doctor and start looking into the type of prenatal care you want for your pregnancy.
