Do you ever count the weeks till your out of your first trimester???

i'm diabetic and the first trimester is the hardest and i am counting the weeks till it's over.. but to me it also feels like the longest... 9 weeks and only a few more to go.

  • Absolutely. I always have the next milestone I'm counting down to, not because I am rushing things along, but because progress is exciting. First there is the 12 week mark, then 16 weeks, then 20 weeks, then 24 weeks, then 32 weeks, and then 36 weeks!

  • I am on my 3rd pregnancy and for each of them, the first 9 weeks is the longest, the last 9 weeks is the hardest. Good luck. Once your done with the first trimester you will be giving birth before you know it. Good Luck!!
