What do you consider to be the "end" of the first trimester?

If you do it by months it's week 12, but the docs usually say it is at the end of the 12th week, so basically when you hit 13 weeks. There are varying weeks for this, but I consider 13 weeks as the beginning of the 2nd trimester

The end of 12 weeks is the end of the first trimester, and the beginning of 13 weeks is the beginning of the 2nd trimester, or at least that's what I've always thought.

I have read recently that your 13th week is the last of your 1st trimester and 14th week starts your 2nd trimester. So I was going by that, one week sounds much better than 2 though lol

I mostly asked because the JM calendar says that the first tri is completed at the start of 12 weeks... I'll go with 13, though, since I still have morning sickness .
