    I've heard so many different stories about when it starts, is it the start of your 13th week? Or 14th? Cheers!

    Not really sure, wondering this myself as I'm just over 13w.

    I think it varies regionally, but I do think my midwife considers the start of the 13th week the second tri so I guess I consider it that way myself? But actually 13 full weeks times 3 is 39 which I guess comes to full term.

    It's a pickle! A 'good' one though if you ask me :)

    Good question because my pregnancy books show 2nd trimester starting at 13 weeks and Mayo clinic shows 13 weeks but here is 14 and I've seen 14 a few other places as well!!!

    Well that's what I thought, and my mum just said that too.. And no point in asking midwife when I next see her because that's only on the 5th December..
