  • Each trimester is 13 1/3 weeks, so once you're 13 weeks pregnant you're in your second trimester.

  • my doc said the end of 12 weeks is the end of the first trimester, because every trimester is 3 months--but honestly, every doctor seems to have a different opinion on what week the second trimester starts, 13 or 14 is the general answer though it seems

  • By your 14th week, your second trimester has definitely started!
