Solution 1

to add an extension method called WeekNumber for a DateTime instance here is the code:
public static class DateTimeExtensions
    public static int WeekNumber(this System.DateTime value)
        return CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Calendar.GetWeekOfYear(value,CalendarWeekRule.FirstFourDayWeek,DayOfWeek.Monday);

Thanks for comment. I updated it.
You the following method:
private List<datetime> GetDateByWeek(DateTime startDate, int weekNumOfMonth, int dayOfWeek)
        List<datetime> dates = new List<datetime>();
        DateTime dt = new DateTime(startDate.Year, startDate.Month, 1);
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
            int day = (weekNumOfMonth - 1) * 7 - 1 + dayOfWeek - (int)dt.DayOfWeek;
            dates.Add(dt.AddDays(day >= 0 ? day : day + 7));
            dt = dt.AddMonths(1);
        return dates;

To use this, for example for third week, thursday, just call like this:

List<DateTime> myDates = GetDateByWeek(DateTime.Now, 3, 5);
