Ok well I am 24 weeks 2 days...

I get this babyzone weekly newsletter that tells me what week I am at... It has been acurate with the week but when I got my 24 week update It said
"welcome to the 3rd trimester" I always thought that started somewhere around 26/28 weeks?

Sad that i have had 3 kids and still can't remember this stuff lol

Trimesters are split up differently amongst different sources, but I think most sources say 28 weeks starts the 3rd trimester. I don't think I've heard of 24 weeks as starting it. 24 weeks starts viability of the baby.

To be technical about it . . .
First trimester starts at 2 weeks. (That's when ovulation occurs, 2w since lmp.)
Second trimester starts at 14 weeks.
Third trimester starts at 26 weeks.
The last trimester is actually 14 weeks long because the gestation is 38 weeks total, or 9.5 lunar months (a lunar month is 4 weeks).

I spoke with my Peri natal and she says that indeed trimesters are 12 weeks and I am concidered in the 3rd trimester. Who woulda thunk it?
