In brief: About 28 weeks

The easiest way to figure out how many months you are is to count backwards from your due date which is of course 9 completed months.
4 weeks is a little less than one month and so 40 weeks = 9 months.

In brief: 3rd trimester: >28w.

As most months are 4-5 weeks long, the seventh month starts at 28 weeks.
