How Many Weeks?

When I was pregnant I would always err on the side of being slightly more pregnant than I actually was, so I may have been one day over 20 weeks but I would say nearly 21.

I’m not sure why, maybe I felt big and that was an excuse or perhaps if I was further along I was getting to closer to meeting my baby. All mind games!

Now that my babe is here I find myself saying he is less old than he actually is, trying to hold onto this precious period in my life and his.

How long are you allowed to say your baby is “so many weeks” old? I am getting to the point where I am starting to forget how many weeks he is 12, 13 or even 14 perhaps but to think about saying he is 3 months old……..doesn’t sound so wee baby anymore.

I think I might be the mother telling people he is 40 something weeks as he approaches his first birthday just to keep up the appearance (in my head anyway) that I have a small baby.

So how long did you keep telling your babe’s age in weeks? What’s acceptable?
