I can't remember if the 1st trimester is the start of the 12th week.. Or the start of the 13th week?..

I think I have it both in my various pregnancy books.. Can I celebrate surviving the first trimester now? Or should I wait?

I have always heard that the second trimester starts when you hit 13 weeks.

I've always gone by (since it was the first thing I read ) 12 weeks is the 2nd trimester and 27 weeks the third

I've heard both as well. I guess, technically, if you just divide the 40 weeks by 3, each trimester should be 13.3 weeks. But I've always considered 12 weeks the end of the 1st trimester and 27 weeks the end of the 2nd trimester.

I always thought it was 12 weeks, and my appointment last week my doctor said I'd be able to stop the Progesterone and Metformin "in the 2nd trimester" and then she said specifically 12 weeks- so I'm sticking with 12!

Lol I still don't know either. But I like to start celebrating at 12 weeks because it is sooner- I'm impatient

12 weeks is the first trimester. 12 full weeks. So that would mean that when you hit 13 weeks it is the second trimester.

Ive heard you are really out of the high risk zone at 12 weeks but second trimester starts at week 13.
