I don't see where you get 4140 from, but I think you are miscalculating. If you use the code in message 3648 plus the code in message 3727, you should get the following result:
----------------------------------
totpreg7m |      count  proportion
----------+-----------------------
        0 |       8507       .6712
        1 |       3015       .2379       1 * 3015  = 3015
        2 |       1036       .0818       2 * 1036  = 2072
        3 |      111.6       .0088       3 * 111.6 =  334.8
        4 |      1.093     8.6e-05       4 * 1.093 =    4.372
        5 |      3.547     2.8e-04       5 * 3.547 =   17.375
          | 
    Total |    1.3e+04           1           Sum   = 5443.907     
----------------------------------
totpreg7m contains the total number of pregnancies of 7 months or more (including twins), and when you multiply this out with the number of cases you get 5444 pregnancies of 7 months or more in total.
