I have been told to divide 40 (weeks) by 3 (trimesters) and it breaks down to 13 and some odd days per trimester. You can round up or round down. So 13 weeks (or 14l then 26 (or 27). That is what I go by. And I rounded down. Haha : )

Here, What to Expect, and everywhere ive seen says 27 weeks is the start of your 3rd. My What to Expect When Youre Expecting phone app, says im 27 weeks 2 days and in my 3rd trimester, as of 2 days ago

1-14 -1st (13 weeks)
14-27-2nd (13 weeks)
27-40- 3 (13-14 weeks)

Since 3 is an odd number, one extra week can go in the 2nd tri or the 3rd tri. Everyone will say something different

Lol, depends where you look - some say it's the end of 26 weeks, some say it's the end of 27 weeks.

I'm 26 + 5 weeks, so making the most of it and posting in both 2nd tri and 3rd tri forums this week as a "transition"

The doctors I've seen have the trimesters divided up like this:

LMP-12w6d = First Trimester
13-26w6d = Second Trimester
27 to Birth = Third Trimester

It pretty much sets it up for 13 weeks 1st tri, 14 weeks 2nd tri then 13 third if you go by a standard 40 weeks. Also puts 20 weeks at the middle of the 40 weeks and about the middle of the 2nd tri. I've seen a variety of other dates though so it really depends on the source. I just go by what my doctors use since they're the ones making medical decisions, recommendations and deciding what I can or can't do/take based on what trimester I'm in. I don't think there's really much other actual use for trimesters that'd be worth using any other dates. Maybe just ask your doctor what dates he/she uses?
