I just hit the second trimester today and I'm pumped! Anyone else want to have a little emoticon dance party with me to celebrate the end of the scary/icky trimester?

When does it end?  The first trimester?  I keep hearing all different things.  It's driving me batty.

I'm never sure when it's official, either. I hit 12 weeks tomorrow, which is what I used to think the second trimester was, but now I hear it's the end of week 12? Or some people say 14 weeks??? 

I'm excited about hitting 12 weeks tomorrow, though! :)

Me today!  I know it is also looked at as 13 weeks, but I always figure 12 weeks is the big mark for pregnancies sticking around, so I celebrate 12 weeks!!!!!

 

Hurray!

It took me til 14-16 weeks with my other pregnancies for the exhaustion and nausea to disappear. Still happy to be 12 weeks though-- the light at the end of the tunnel is a lot brighter than it was a few weeks ago.

I had my second trimester celebration challenged by a friend and had to look up the official cut off points:

 

The Developmental second trimester starts at 12 weeks (third at 27 weeks), when it officially becomes a fetus and the scary miscarriage rates reduce.

 

The Gestational second trimester starts at 13 weeks + 3 days (third at 26 weeks + 6 days), which is the 40 weeks divided equally into three trimesters.

 

The Conceptional second trimester starts at 14 weeks + 5 days (third at 27 weeks + 3 days), which is the true pregnancy weeks (38) divided into three trimesters.
 

 

As I am 12 weeks today, I say carrot.gif

More power to you!  broc1.gifbanana.gifcarrot.gifbroc1.gifbanana.gifcarrot.gif broc1.gifbanana.gifcarrot.gif broc1.gifbanana.gifcarrot.gif  (DD loves these guys!)

 

I'm an agonizing 2w2d away from 12 weeks, but I fully intend to celebrate 2nd tri no later than that.  With my 1st pregnancy my MS was almost totally gone at that point, and that's what counts for me!

Yeah!!! I'm exactly 12 weeks today.

joy.gif:joy:joy

Now if I could just stop puking and feeling like crud.greensad.gif

Hooray!!! I thought it was 13 weeks, but if 12 weeks begins the "developmental" second trimester and means miscarriage rates drop, I am IN!! I will be officially 12 weeks tomorrow.joy.gif

 

Congrats to all of us who've come this far!! grouphug.gif

I have always thought of 12 weeks as the magical crossover point, even though there are the other later ones. I am not there yet (in three days i will be, by my dates, which are slightly earlier than my ob's). Once i hit 12weeks and see another good u/s i will.feel.comfortable.finally.going all the way public.

I'm definitely celebrating and only rarely dealing with nausea, woohoo! 12w5d

12 weeks today!!!  jumpers.gif
 

 

yay!

 

I feel a *little* better lately.. i guess the m/s and everything is just going away very gradually this time around..   i'll take it, as long as it gets better!

post #19 of 46

I feel better - I think.  I haven't really struggled with morning sickness. I get waves that wash over me but nothing too bad.

 

I am still tired and sleeping a good 90 minutes to 2 hours in the afternoon when my girls have rest time (heh I sleep for the length or whatever movie the oldest chooses :p)

I don't know if the tiredness is my health issues (autoimmune stuff), pregnancy, or missing the ADD meds I was on for 3 years.   Oh well.. it is getting better :)

As soon as I feel a little MS I eat cheetos... so wrong but so right!
