Depends on where you look, I believe it's at the completion of 12 weeks, 13 is in the 3rd but I have the same conflicting info too - Some say announce at 12 weeks, some at 13....

if you want to get really technical and specific, each trimester is roughly 13+2 (because that number x3 is roughly 40 weeks), so at 13+3 you are in second tri. i think in most places, it is accepted that you are considered to be in 2nd tri at the end of the 13th week, though most doctors consider you to be statistically beyond the greatest risk of mc by 12 weeks. so, in short, it's a little different depending on who you ask!

US is 12 weeks, UK considers it 14 weeks, this site goes with 14 weeks and then the US start for 3rd trimester. I'm from the US so I'm in my second after 12 weeks.
