# What trimester am I in?

Anybody know why it seems like health professionals and books an internet reading cant seem to agree on which month is in what trimester? Im 16 weeks and some say it is the 1st trimester, some say it is 3 months, some say I am 4 months, some say it is the 2nd trimester--Im sooo confused! Anyone know?

• agreed. Im 15 weeks and get emails from babycenter and they consider the 14th week the begining of the 2nd trimester

• you are suppose to be pregnant for 40 weeks and if you divide that by 3 trimesters you get 13.3333333 so you really start your 2nd trimester in the 13th week but they just start with week 14. Your third trimester starts at week 27. At least that is what was explained to me.
