How do u know ur trimester after a IVF retrieval and 3 day transfer if u forgot when ur menstrual started in a mixed triplet pregnancy? I'm 13 weeks.

Trimesters are defined only by weeks gestation: 0-12 is first trimester, 12-24 weeks is second trimester, and 24-40 weeks is third trimester. So at 13 weeks you are early in your second trimester. Congratulations! ...Read more
