I do! When people ask how far along , I say the next closest week! For instance I am 14w2d and this morning I said I was 15wks. NO idea why, but I do...lol

Such a silly thing too but I think it's because I feel so big that I need to add a few days! LOL

Come on, anyone else do it? haha

I round, but I do it both ways. So right now I'd say I'm 14 weeks (although that doesn't technically happen until tomorrow) If asked I'll say I'm 14 weeks until next Tuesday and then Wednesday I'll start saying I'm 15.

And I don't think its a silly thing, I think its natural!

I round to the nearest half. Once I'm further along I'll probably round to the nearest week.

I actually round down, I'm already counting 3 days ahead of my doctor, so I don't want to get too ahead of myself. I'll be 11 weeks tomorrow, but I say I'm 10 weeks until I actually hit 11. I dont tell people the days because it's easier not to

Nope, I would just say something like I'll be 15 weeks on Friday. (Or in my instance today, I'm 12 weeks.)

I round to whichever weeks is closer, and if it's in the exact middle I round up.

I round up if the next week is within 2 days. Like I will be 12 weeks on Sunday, but it's already Friday, so I will just say "12 weeks" now.

Technically you're in the 15th week. I might start doing that, too. I'm not 11 wks 4 days, I'm in the 12th week.

Yep. My weeks start on tuesday. If asked today how far I am, I'll say 16 weeks.
My stomach has popped out so much that I need to feel further along. Lol

Not many people know I'm pregnant so I haven't had many ask. With DS, I always said "I'll be X weeks on Friday" or I told them when I was due (late in my pregnancy) because I had people say "well how much longer do you have left" when I told them how many weeks as if they didn't know a pregnancy was about 40 weeks. (In his defense, it was a guy that said it lol)
