It IS the measurement for the length of gestation. That is a fact. Trimesters are names for different times during the pregnancy, but gestational age is the length OF the pregnancy.

Our age begins at birth, not before. On the day we were born, our age was 0, NOT 36 weeks. That is another fact.

Gestational age is not the length of the pregnancy. Gestational age begins before the pregnancy, and gestational age continues after the pregnancy.
An infant's gestational age is determined by several sources of information.
http://www.pediatrics.emory.edu/divisions/neo...
Gestational age, or the age of the baby, is calculated from the first day of the mother’s last menstrual period. Since the exact date of conception is almost never known, the first day of the last menstrual period is used to measure how old the baby is.
http://americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/...
Gestational age relates to the age of an embryo or fetus (or newborn infant).
https://www.boundless.com/physiology/human-de...
The term “gestational age” should be used instead of “menstrual age” to describe the age of the fetus or newborn infant.
http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content...
Two different age metrics are used to describe prenatal development. The first is the post-fertilization age--the time that has passed since fertilization of the egg. The second is the gestational age--the time elapsed since the first day of the mother's last menstrual cycle before pregnancy. Gestational age is approximately two weeks greater than post-fertilization age. Gestational age is often used because its start date can be clearly determined, whereas the moment of fertilization must be inferred.
http://www.livestrong.com/article/92683-embry...
Note: gestational age of the fetus is calculated from the first day of the last menstruation. However, the actual age of the fetus as approximately 2 weeks less (due to the usual date of conception) To make things clearer, the gestational age terminology is usually used.
http://atlases.muni.cz/atlases/feto/atl_en/ma...
A new study out of Sweden has found that using ultrasounds alone to determine the gestational age of a baby girl could cause her to unnecessarily be born post-term, which in some cases can lead to death.

You are still misunderstanding what is being said, and you are still wrong. Nothing here disproves my statements.

Gestational age is the length of the gestation, even if it's measured after the gestation is over, and used to determine the treatment of a neonate.

Our age begins at birth, not before. On the day we were born, our age was 0, NOT 36 weeks.

Gestational age is measured before the pregnancy begins, and continues after pregnancy ends, which obviously is not the measurement of pregnancy. Pregnancy is measured with trimesters. Gestational age is an approximation of the baby's age. Our age begins with fertilization, and neither the gestational age nor the calendar age of infants is ever 0.

You are wrong. That is exactly what it is.

You are wrong. Pregnancy is broken down by trimesters. It is measured by gestational age.

"Gestational age is an approximation of the baby's age."

You are wrong. Gestational age is the measurement of the length of the gestation.

"Our age begins with fertilization, and neither the gestational age nor the calendar age of infants is ever 0."

You're not even making sense. If gestational age begins before the pregnancy, then it ALSO begins before fertilization. You idiot. You are wrong.

Gestational age is the measurement of the pregnancy, even if it's measured after the pregnancy is over, and used to determine treatment for a neonate that is premature.

Our age begins at birth, not before. On the day we were born, our age was 0, NOT 36 weeks. On your first birthday, your age was 1 year, NOT one year and 36 weeks. You are wrong.

Breaking the length of something into increments is what measurement is. Breaking the length of pregnancy into increments of trimesters is measuring the pregnancy.
The time interval of a gestation is called the gestation period. In human obstetrics, gestational age refers to the embryonic or fetal age plus two weeks. Gestational age does not refer to the length of gestation. Gestational age calculates the baby's approximate age from the first day of the mother’s last menstrual period before gestation.

Gestational age is the measurement for the whole pregnancy. Trimesters just the length of parts of it.

Again, none of this disproves what I'm saying.

Our age begins at birth, not before. On the day we were born, our age is 0, NOT 36 weeks.

Trimesters is the measurement for the whole pregnancy, a pregnancy has a beginning, middle, and end - known as first, second, and third trimesters. Gestational age is measured before the pregnancy begins, and continues after pregnancy ends, which obviously is not the measurement of pregnancy. Gestational age is an approximation of the baby's age. Our age begins with fertilization, and neither the gestational age nor the calendar age of infants is ever 0.

You are wrong. Trimesters are not the measurement for the whole, merely for a 12-14 week period DURING the whole gestation.

Again, idiot, if "gestational age" is measured from before there is a pregnancy, then it is ALSO measured from before fertilization.

Gestational age is the measurement of the length of the pregnancy, even if it's measured after the pregnancy is over, and the timing used to determine how developed the fetus was at the time of birth, and any needed treatments for a preemie.

Our age begins at birth, not before. On the day we were born, our age was 0, NOT 36 weeks.

Fertilization dates are impossible to determine. That is why gestational age is used to approximate the baby's age. Gestational period is the measurement of the length of the pregnancy. Gestational age refers to the baby's age. Timing of the pregnancy is not used to determine how developed the baby was at the time of birth. Because it is not the pregnancy that determines how developed the baby is, rather the rate at which the baby matures determines how developed the baby is, irregardless of the length of pregnancy. Gestational age can be measured by looking at the baby's weight, length, head circumference, vital signs, reflexes, muscle tone, posture, and condition of the skin and hair. Our age begins with fertilization, and neither the gestational age nor the calendar age of infants is ever 0.
