Sources go back and forth on where the lines are between the trimesters. Today I'm 13w3d, which is just over 33.3333% of the way through my pregnancy, so as far as I'm concerned, I'm officially in the 2nd trimester now.

It feels like there's still so far to go, and yet it is going SO fast. Eek!

My uterus has recently moved up to where the top of it is only an inch or two below my navel. Anyone else there yet? I can't wait to be obviously pregnant instead of just suspiciously larger. I keep having pregnancy brain moments, too, so it would be nice to have something to encourage people to give me the benefit of the doubt and not just assume I'm an airhead all the time! Heh.

I also feel like I'm settling into the pregnancy - I'm not counting the days quite so carefully or always thinking about it. I'm sure I'll go back to counting once I'm big and uncomfortable, but for now... this is pretty alright.

LOL Your skill in pregnancy has grown by one point! Congratulations! My uterus moved up a while back. About an inch above my belly button now. I think I have just been pregnant so many times. I bet you'll really be showing in the next couple weeks.

I was trying to figure out exactly when the second trimester starts as well, pretty sure I'm there too!

Glad your settling in! I don't have a clue where my uterus is I don't like poking around lol

Woot, woot. I know to most I am not technically in my second trimester, but since my doctor and my ticker say I am I'm jumping the gun and going with that lol.

The calendar on this website says 12 weeks but Ive also hears 13 weeks. What's funny is I don't remember caring when the 3rd trimester started! Maybe by then its all about the months or weeks.

Yay for 2nd tri!!!! I'm pretty sure my uterus is about halfway between my pubic bone and BB, but I have a long torso, so it's not going to measure the same as others.

Hooray for 2nd tri!! Yeah, I've heard anywhere from 12 weeks to 14 weeks. I personally like the 12 week idea which means I'd hit that on Friday.

In the mornings when my bladder is pushing my uterus up I feel really huge!

I'm also 13+3 today! Uterus "popped" today and I look crazy pregnant now, but just as of today. Can feel my uterus about 1 inch below my bb. My DH was remarking this evening how crazy it is that I am actually looking pregnant now.
