Second Tri? WOAH!!!!

According to my ticker, I'm starting my second Tri today!!!! YAY!!!!!!

Who else is in the second tri? Hard to believe we're moving along so quickly. I guess we need to start thinking of a board name soon! Naming starts once we're all in the second tri!

Go us!!!!

I hate how there is this disagreement as to whether it's 13 weeks or 14 weeks. My ticker (on my baby space) says I'm in the second tri and so does the list when I click on the ticker...but when I then go to the write up about 13 weeks it says this is the last week of the first tri! I mean, can't that one website even get it straight? LOL! Whatever, I'm saying 13 weeks is second tri. Blum 3

Well, if you want to get super technical about it... the second tri starts when you are 13 weeks, 3 and 1/3 days along!! Blum 3 Anyway, I always say once you are 13 weeks, that's the second tri!

It always makes me feel like I have accomplished something and am finally getting somewhere when I hit the second trimester!

2nd tri is nice.....especially when you missed most of the first tri Wink

Once we are all in 2nd tri we can pick a board name!

You'll be there soon! I remember it felt like forever after my BFP for you to get yours. I was so anxious waiting!

I've never made it longer than 39 weeks so to me, 13 weeks is at least 1/3 Smile

but I've got a ways to go yet. I feel so far behind on this board and so far ahead on July! I'd really be shocked if I make it to July, though. I've never made it to the right month, even when I was due on the 17th, I went the 28th of the month before!

On DS birth board I was right in the middle, and DD birth board I was right at the end of the month, and this one I am at the beginning. I have experienced them all, so I know how you feel. I think being at the end is the hardest, you feel like no one cares because everyone else has already been where you are. And at the beginning you are like, "come on everyone, catch up!". Being in the middle is the best!

haha, I was pondering the technicality of this the other day myself. My thinking was with the first 2 weeks being you aren't even technically pregnant they are like throw away weeks since it really all begins from ovulation/conception. So that leaves 38 weeks to divide into 3 tri's and then you have to add the first 2 weeks back on the first tri so they don't get lost. That would make the end of the first trimester 14 weeks and 5 days roughly. Isn't that a bummer! Blum 3

So I just go with 14 weeks and then I know I'm done with the first one. I usually stay pretty nauseous until about 18 wks anyway so it doesn't really mean much to me. Boo!! :rolleyes:

Personally, I love the 20 week milestone b/c pregnancy always seems to fly for me after that point. Admittedly though, I've never even approached an EDD without already having a baby that is multiple weeks old. I bet time stands still those last few weeks if you have to go the full term.

Ya, the going full term and/or over thing would suck. I hate waiting!!!! I had DD 10 days before her due date.

Oh yeah, I don't even want to hear complaining come June when people don't have babies by 39 weeks and start to get grumpy Wink My boys were 10 and 11 days late. It is NOT fun to go overdue! Just watch, I won't have this one until over half of you guys already have yours, and my DD is the 1st!

I'm fully expecting this one around 38 weeks or 39 at the latest. I'm betting I beat you Sandra! Blum 3

Mine will be a scheduled c section. So I will have the baby on June 7th. One week before! I had DD 2 weeks early and DS was also a scheduled c-sec. So I have never been over due. I imagine its no fun!

I was 40+3 the first time, and although it's uncomfortable and sucks waiting, I would like to be 40 weeks again. I'm calling 14weeks the second trimester because I still feel like such garbage, and I am determined to feel better this time around by the second trimester. So I have until Saturday to get my (some please ) energy back.

I'll join your "expecting to be overdue" club Sandra! I had my first 3 days overdue and my 2nd 2 days overdue (or a week if you go by my original EDD!). They were both induced so who knows how long I would have gone otherwise (although with my first I got pre-e so bad that I could have had a stroke and/or died prior to going into labor on my own...yikes!).

ANYWAY...I'd die of shock if this one decided to pop out on it's own before my EDD. My body doesn't seem to "get" that whole how to start labor thing Wink

I had my first at 37w1d. I was violently ill and needed surgery so I was induced. My second came all on his own at exactly 39 weeks. Those last 2 weeks I *felt* overdue because I was pregnant longer and it was miserable!!! Smile
