Just curious as to what week is considered the beginning of the third trimester?

Thanks ladies.....that means I have at least 6 weeks to go! Seems like forever.

Some things say the 27th week some say the 28th...From what I've seen the most it appears more common to count the beginning of the 28th week (so once you're through the end of the 27th) as the start of the 3rd tri. But I think it just depends on who you ask.

When you click on stages of pregnancy in the list to the left, it says 1st trimester is 0-12wks, 2nd trimester is 13-28wks therefore 3rd trimester is 29+wks

I woukd think the 27th week. The endof it. For instance i turned 27weeks yesterday. So today i am 27 weeks and 1 day so i am workign on my 28th week and i am exactly to the day 3 mths short of being full term (i am due April 16th). So i guess yesterday or today would be my official start date for 3rd trimester/

Does seem like a long way off, doesn't it? But just think Christmas was about three weeks ago...so it is flying fast even though it doesn't seem that way. Can't wait till we're posting on a third trimester board!!

In "What to Expect When You're Expecting", it has the third trimester listed as weeks 24-40. In other books it says weeks 28-40. It seems that with pregnancy you never get any consistent answers.
