# 27 weeks today...sooo?

Am I in the third trimester? Some say yes, some say no. A few websites Ive seen say the start of your 28th week is the 3rd tri....?

Everything I've read says 28 weeks. I think it's technically 27 weeks and a few days, but most everything goes by 28 weeks.
• I am going to consider myself in third trimester at 26w6d. That's going by the 40 divided by 3 rule.

Actually, the 2/3 rule is 26 weeks 4 1/2 days.  40 / 3 = 13.333 x 2 = 26.666.  The .666 is 2/3 of 7 days which is a little over 4 and a half days.

To OP, I would say you are 3rd trimester now, but it depends on your counting method.

If you've completed 27 weeks, you're beginning your 28th week. (Kind of like how 2011 is in the "twenty-first" century.)

So I'd say you're 3rd tri! Congrats!
