I did realize this, too late. I finished in 2 weeks and the first thing they said was "we should have said 1 week."

But now that it is in Test they're finding out that vague requirements, a lack of direction from the Business and a compressed time frame have led to a lot of gaps, not just in the code but in what they actually wanted the application to do. If this thing goes live in less than another 2 weeks I'd be surprised. And that would bring me right back to my original 4 weeks.
