When do you think the first trimester ends? My doctor told me 12 weeks, my book says 13 weeks, and some internet articles say 14 weeks.... I am 11.5 weeks and am desperate to be out of the scary zone....

The first trimester ends the last day of week 12. so the first day of your 13th week is when the second trimister begins... Hope that helps you have a week and a half

Daisy- I am the same way. This will be my first pregnancy if it continues (I have had two m/c already) and I just want to get out of this trimester! I go for my 12 week scan on Thursda!! I am so scared...I just dont want to be let down again...

Thanks! I am scared for the same reason. I miscarried in October at 6 weeks.... it's hard to believe everything is OK! good luck on Thursday!

I think it starts on 13w1d.

I have heard so many differing opinions about when the first tri ends and the second begins. Someone on this site gave me a good website (sorry can't remember it) but basically said that since a pregnancy is 40 weeks, each trimester is broken into a third of that time so the first will end on 13w3d, the second at 26w7d and the third ends at week 40. I thought this made the most sense out of all the differing opinions. As far as being "out of the scary zone" I think they say as long as the hb can be heard, your chances of miscarriage has dropped significantly.
