Everyone will tell you something different. I personally don't consider myself "officially" in the 2nd trimester until I"m 14 weeks, and then third trimester at 27 weeks.

This is the first I've heard that. I always thought your second trimester starts at 12 weeks. That's what the JM calendar says...

It's very confusing but the second trimester would only start at 12 weeks if those first 3 months were only 28 days each, which they aren't, so it should start at 13 1/2, or 14 just to be safe/round off

I was told the end of 13 weeks for each trimester. So the end of 13 for the first, the end of 26 for the second, then the third (which of course you're in till you give birth!) would go to the end of the 39th which puts you at 40 weeks.
