Curious, what's the big deal about what trimester you are in? Why did the docs choose to split it into three parts vs two or four? Why do we celebrate starting a new trimester? *chuckles* 


*** That being said.... I started my third trimester today- hoorah! (; 

My blog at www.rememberbaby.wordpress.com, filled with letters to my little one starting from 5 weeks pregnant until now!

The division into trimesters is loosely based on foetal developmental stages. I guess we celebrate the end of each trimester because we like to celebrate milestones and are excited about getting closer to having the baby.
