What are trimesters in pregnancy?

Pregnancy Trimesters

Once you've determined that you are pregnant, you'll want to get the most up-to-date information to guide you on a week by week and month by month basis throughout your baby's fetal growth. A pregnancy is typically divided into three trimesters. The first trimester covers week one through week 12. The second trimester covers week 13 through week 27, and the third trimester covers week 28 through week 40. Keep in mind that a full-term baby can be born anywhere from 38 to 42 weeks of age, and predicting the exact date can be tricky. Make regular pre-natal care appointments, and follow your doctor's instructions to ensure that your baby has the best chance of being born healthy.
