My wife is pregnant and it's her 30th week going on .. Dr. informed the EDD is 1st july 2013 and her LMP was on 24th Sep 2012.
I just want to know a general query that we are planning for Baby Shower on 12th of may 2013. But my family members are telling that at 8th month it's not possible.
So pls inform me that on 12th may 2013 will be her 8th or 9th months.???

Hello, congratulations on the good news.

As per her last menses she would be 32 weeks and 6 days on 12th May 2013. Which means her 8th month is on.

According to calender also she would be in her 8th month on 12th May 2013.

As far as I know usually the baby shower ceremony is done in the 7th month.

But the ritual is different every where and done according to individual's religion and more importantly convenience when all the family members are present.

So don't worry, go ahead with the ceremony as per your elders advice and everybody's convenience.

Take care and all the best.

Thanks a LOT Dr. Rishma for the information, actually we were confused as we were thinking that 32 weeks 6 days means 32 weeks would have been completed and 33rd week would be continuing as of 12th May, 2013.

But you have cleared our doubt and A BIG THANK YOU for that.
