No Matter How You Slice It

Some folks call the 12th week the beginning on the second trimester.

Some people prefer to wait until the 13th week before calling it that.

There are some really conservative ones that wait until the 14th week to say that you're in the second trimester.

No matter what camp you're in or how you count off the days . . .

Second trimester, here I am!!

I am so glad to be here, for the obvious biggest reason of all being that we are now safely past the highest risk of miscarriage. I am also glad to be here, because I am feeling human again. I am so glad to be able to eat and to parent my son. There were some dark days back there where I wasn't sure we were going to make it.

But here we are and until I get huge, awkward, and swollen, I plan to live it up! Yay for the second trimester!

My doctor always split it 13, 13, and 14 for 40 weeks. When I was pregnant with twins, it was 12, 12, and 12, since 36w was the goal. But, you are right, no matter how you slice it, you are there!!! CONGRATS!!!
