Does it start at

A)12 weeks

B)13 weeks

Somebody.  Anybody.  Put me out of my misery.

    Congrats on almost making it through the first trimester! How exciting!

    I wish I had an answer, but I am still really early. (About 4.5 weeks) I have a hard time thinking about the first trimester, much less the second trimester!

    12 weeks. Each trimester last 12ish weeks/3 months. Trimester is left over from when they still thought pg lasted 9 months. They LIE!!! ALL LIES!!!

    I went with 13 weeks, because some things say 12 weeks and some say 13. So I figured 13 was safe. And 14 seemed too far:-)

    My view was 14 weeks, being conservative. Mathematically, I would say it is 13 and 1/3 weeks, which is 40 weeks divided by 3. I just rounded that up to 14. But 13 is probably close enough-
