Count Complete Tree Nodes

Given the root of a complete binary tree, return the number of the nodes in the tree.

According to Wikipedia, every level, except possibly the last, is completely filled in a complete binary tree, and all nodes in the last level are as far left as possible. It can have between 1 and 2h nodes inclusive at the last level h.

Design an algorithm that runs in less than O(n) time complexity.

class Solution(object):
    def countNodes(self, root):
        if not root: 
            return 0
        return self.countNodes(root.left) + self.countNodes(root.right) + 1
