When Does the 2nd Tri Start?

User Profile
Does the 2nd trimester start on your 12th or 14th week? I keep getting conflicting info from the internet and various books. Thanks for the help!

2nd Trimester.....
It starts at week 13. Week 12 is the last day of your 3rd month.

Every month is 4 weeks....

I am 26 weeks....Which is the 2nd week of my 7th month.

A better example is week 20 would be the last week of your 5th month.

I hope this makes some sense..Lol...It's kind of confusing!! But it gets a lot easier.
