    Hmmmm....
    Don't want to be a party pooper but the beginning of the the 2nd Trimester is medically 14 weeks.

    1st Trimester - First day last period to 13+6
    2nd Trimester - 14 to 27+6
    3rd Trimester - 28 to birth!

    Yeah, I was thinking, if you divide 40 weeks into three, then there is 13 weeks in each Trimester and one extra week. So second Trimester in that case wouldn't start till beginning of 14th week.

    Yeah, I know that mathematically it works that way .... but do you think anybody will shoot us for arriving in the Tri-2 forum early? :D

    It's probably less a calendar thing than a state of mind ...

    Had dating scan (12 wks)?

    Morning sickness lessening?

    Tiredness lessening?

    Ready to move into the "blooming" stage?
