Can you please accept 40 weeks as an alternative answer to 9 months? Gestation weeks is a common measurement during pregnancy.

Yes that was what I put first! 9 months is a common shorthand but everyone knows it's actually 40 weeks.

37, 38, or 39 weeks would have worked. According to Wikipedia, normal gestation is between 259 and 275 days.

39-40 weeks is a full term pregnancy. 40 weeks is the most commonly used time in the medical community and outside other than 9 months. It should be accepted.

40 weeks isn't gestation though, that the time since the mother's last cycle (which is easier to measure than ovulation and fertilization).

Technically, matricide can be ANY mother, not just the murderers own mother.

Absolutely not. Matricide is killing ones own mother, and I just checked three dictionaries that all agree. If you kill a woman that just so happens to have children, that is properly defined as homicide
