In my Mayo Clinic Guide To A Healthy Pregnancy 40 wks is considered full term. That is also considered 10 months. Its confusing. Which at 26 wks you would be month 7. But everyone says you are pregnant 9 months. & the whole trimester thing is cuz the nine months are divided in 3. Its confusing if you ask me. But you can also take the wks that you are,26 & divide by 4 and that is how many months you are and that gives you a diffrent #. which would make you 6 1/2 months pregnant. So yes you would be in your 3rd trimester, cuz anything after 6 months is 3rd :) good luck....

good question. I am getting conflicting information from different web sites. Some say you enter your 3rd trimester at 24 weeks others say 27, little confused, what is the general rule of thumb here?

According to many doctors and the American Pregnancy a__sociation, your trimester starts at 26 weeks. According to development method of calculations you start your third trimester at 27w0days. In the gestational method, you start third trimester at 27w3day. Most people say you start your third trimester at week 28. But remember you’re in you 28th week when you are 27w1day.
