Ok really.. when DOES the 3rd trimester start?

This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have yet to figure this out as everything you look up online is totally different! I know in the end it really doesn't matter because your ultimate goal is 40 weeks..but just curious to see what week you all go by. I have a pregnancy app on my phone and it updated today saying this was the last week of my 2nd trimester (i am only 24 weeks) and this seems too soon.

  • I think it begins at 28 weeks. That is what most pregnancy calendars say. Congrats on your new little one!!!
