Some says your second trimester begins at 12 weeks. But I also hear that it begins once you hit week 13. Does anyone know the true answer to this? Or is this topic a debate still?

I hear different ones, since tri is three, 40 divided by 3 is a little over 13.

http://www.pregnology.com says the day you turn 13 weeks is when you are in your second trimester. :)

hmm what i feel is, the pregnancy period is 9 months, and each tremister is divided in to 3 months... once you complete 3 months or 12 weeks you finish ur first tremister and enter to 2nd tremister
