Ok so maybe i'm really dumb but i'm confused. When the heck does 2nd trimester start? My ticker is saying that i'm in the 2nd trimester today, at 12 weeks. I thought it was 13 weeks and then the other day someone told me i should start feeling better at 14 weeks, the start of the 2nd trimester. @_@

I always thought it was 13 weeks...But maybe it's 12 because you're in your 13th week at 12 weeks? I don't really know. LOL

It depends on who you ask! lol My doc considers it a full 12 weeks (12w6d). So the 13th week is the start of the 2nd tri.

I remember a big debate on this in my last DDc. Everyone has different opinions. I think it's when you are exactly 13 weeks. But other docs and other websites will say different thing

The problem is the 40 week/9 month thing. Each trimester is 3 months, but a month is not exactly 4 weeks, so it's harder to split it up by weeks.

Technically going by 40wks, and split it up, 13w3d would be the start of the second trimester. I just go by 13w0d. I think my doc go's by 13w6d.....FF go's by the 12th wk.....for all 8 kids I have just gone by 13wks and 27wks for the start of the 3rd.

I never really give it much thought. It's not like things magically change from one day to the next.

It's because you are technically not 12 FULL weeks until you go 12w 6d. Then you have completed the entire 12th week! I wish I was that far along already!!
