When does third trimester start? I can't figure this out. I keep reading conflicting info on it!

I've heard both 27 and 28 weeks as the start as the 3rd tri (depending on what site/book I look at)i. I consider myself in the 3rd when I turn 28 weeks.

I consider myself in it now. 40÷3=13.3333 so I say 13w3d is 2nd and 26w6d is 3rd.

28 weeks is the start of the 3rd trimester from my understanding. My doctor has always counted from that week and even my ticker counts it from that week. So I'm at 3rd trimester as of tomorrow.

Why is this so confusing?!? If pregnancy is in thirds, why wouldn't it be 26 weeks 6 days?! Oh well it doesn't matter. I'll ask my doc at my Apnt next Friday to see what she thinks lol

My dr says it is 28 weeks so that has always been what I go by. It doesn't make alot of sense though.

I asked this back when we were almost at 2nd and people kept telling me that one month is 4 weeks even though that means you are pregnant for 10 months. Since start of 7 months is supposed to be third trimester, you're 7 months at 28 weeks so that's why 28 weeks is seen as third trimester.
