Hi Ladies,


As usual I am confused and still unsure of what week I am in!

Julie-

I was so confused that I asked my doctor about it. (Not that it really matters-but still I wanted to know!) He said that he consideres anyone past about 13.5 weeks to be in their 2nd trimester. But lots of people say as soon as you hit 12w you're in it & others say not until the 14th week. So I just decided that I was waiting until 13w3d before I called myself in my 2nd tri. But like I said before-it doesn't really matter-just something else for us to obsess about. :)

Julie,

Hello, we have the same EDD 3-6-05. How does your doctor figure that you are 10 1/2 weeks? Was it by u/s? They figure I am 10 1/2 weeks based on LMP and size of the baby during my 2 u/s. I guess that makes the baby 8 1/2 weeks since conception.

Anyway, my doctor gave me a book on pregnancy and it says that the 2nd trimester begins when the baby is 12 weeks, which is usually 14 weeks since the LMP (for women who have 28 day cycles). I figure I will wait until I'm about 13 weeks before feeling I'm in my 2nd trimester.
