Koreans figure age differently.  My western age is now 30.  My Korean age now is 31 and has been since January 1, 2004.  In Korea, you are one year when you born.  Koreans add a year on January first regardless of when their birthday is, so I'll be 32 in a couple weeks. 
  When I was 3 weeks old, I was 2 years old.  It's wacky.

Oh, and Korean women are pregnant for 10 months, not nine.  Mee, don't explain that right away...it'll be fun to see the guesses on why that is.  :D :D :D

Hey girl, what's your nationality? I thought you werent asian, unless you are very cultured
. (This is why you should post your picture!) I know what you're talking about. Except for the adding another yr on January. You lost me there. I only know ppl to have 2 birthdays... your REAL age and then adding a yr to your REAL age. And also, my mom was telling me that my bro's birthday is on Jan. 17...in the LUNAR calendar. It's so confusing...I need to figure this out! Why is it so difficult! LOL

And oh yeah! You lost me on that 10 month thing. What is the extra month you're counting? The time it takes for the sperm to enter the egg after you boomboomed with someone?

ok is it this: doctors do not think of pregnancy in months, but rather in weeks. We use weeks because it's a precise measurement -- every week is seven days long, but months can vary (February, with 28 days, is the only true four- week month!). If every month were exactly four weeks long, then pregnancy would indeed last 10 months, but that's not how it works on the calendar.

Really though..isn't that a crock of doo-doo!!??? A pregnancy term is 40 weeks...divided by the normal 4 weeks in a month=10 months!!! When I figured that out when I was pregnant with my first angel...I was very confused as to where the whole nine month thing started. They should just say 40 weeks!!! Depends on how many 4 and 5 week months you get in there!!!!
