I have read that it begins anywhere from week 12 to week 14, so when do you guys think it begins? I forgot to ask my dr. I am 13 weeks today, so am I in the second trimester now?

I would say your into your 2nd trimester now. Yay! I'm super jealous. I bet it's an awesome feeling knowing you got through the most fragile trimester. So happy your baby bean is growing!

Most people say that week 13 starts the second trimester, but some say the 14th. If you divide 40/3 you get a number that is between 12 2/3 weeks and 13 1/3 weeks. So, that's why there's variation. I used week 13 as the start of trimester 2.

13 weeks is official for me, but 12 weeks is the magic number for sharing.
