I was sending an email off to all of the parents with the latest ultrasound picture and wanted to share how excited I am to have made it to the 2nd trimester. But then I started second guessing myself. Seeing as my sister-in-law is an OBGYN and the email may get forwarded to her I wanted to make sure I was at least semi-right.

So off to the internets I went and the following is what I found here. According to two out of three methods, I've made it. Good enough for me! Yippee for 2nd trimester!!

Quote:
Development:
This uses actual developmental stages to divide up a pregnancy. From LMP to 12 weeks the embryo develops all the major organs and becomes a fetus. From 12 weeks to 27 weeks the fetus continues developing and reaches viability. From 27 weeks on the fetus finishes development and prepares for delivery. Here the second trimester begins at 12w 0d and the third at 27w 0d.

Gestation:
With this method you take the 40 weeks of gestation and divide by three. Here the second trimester begins at 13w 3d and the third at 26w 6d.

Conception:
This method is where you take the 38 weeks of post conception development, divide by three, and add two weeks. Here the second trimester begins at 14w 5d and the third at 27w 3d.

I'm so jealous too!!! I can't wait to reach the 2nd tri. It kinda sucks being due at the very end of the month. I still have about 3 weeks of the 1st tri!

I feel bad for those of you due at the end of the month... I know how exciting it is to reach those special milestones, like entering a new trimester, feeling the baby move, finding out gender, etc.. etc... I know I'd feel so left out being so far behind...
