at how many weeks do i start my 3rd trimester? I am a little confused...

I believe you start at 27 weeks. I am mid way through my 28th week! If you divide 3 trimesters into 40 weeks, you will get 13.3333333, which is approximately 227 weeks. Good Luck and Congrats!

OOps , i goofed, i meant approximately 27 weeks!

Some measure it at beginning of the 27th week, some in the beginning of the 28th. There is an extra week in a 40 week pregnancy (3 months x 13 weeks = 39 weeks), so there is disagreement as to where that extra week belongs.

If it were up to me I'd put the extra week in the second trimester:). My health insurance company counts week 27 as the start of the third trimester (they won't cover anything if I travel outside of the coverage area after the second trimester & have an emergency so I double checked with them to determine what *they* call the thrid trimester).

Oops I goofed too. I meant to say (3 trimesters x 13 weeks = 39 weeks). Lynn, it's almost a guarantee that when in doubt, insurance companies will protect *their* interests. :-)
