In brief: No
The official way to count the number of "weeks pregnant" is from the beginning of the last period.
That means a woman with periods 4 weeks apart would not miss her period until 4-5 weeks after the beginning of her previous period (she will be 4-5 weeks pregnant when she misses her period).
