Trimester

My daughter is always talking about what happens in which trimester. Although I know the word I don't remember it being used when we were expecting her in the mid 90's - I seem to remember that week numbers were used.
Is trimester yet another Americanism being used here or has it been used regularly in the UK over the years?
