    I feel some people jump over at 12 weeks, some at 13, and others at 14 weeks. Anyone know when it truly starts? To me, 13 weeks is 1/3 of 39 weeks, so that sounds right to me?

    People on here are nice, they won't kick you out if you're in early, heck I've been creeping on there since 10 weeks. :)

    You're welcome in any forum, you don't have to be bang on 13 weeks (or 14 as that's what it is on BNB) to pop over :thumbup:

    Yes, but that means the entire 13 weeks (ie 13+6), which would mean second tri starts at 14+0. But whenever you want! :thumbup:

    According to my midwife it's 12+6 so 13 weeks.

    It just depends on where you live. Pregnancy being 40 weeks long is just an estimate, it's why they let you go to 42 weeks :)

    My dr. said every 3 months starts a new tri. so 13 weeks would begin the next 3 months so I say thats when second tri starts.
