Congratulations Mom-to-be! The difficult phase of pregnancy is completed and you have now entered the ‘honeymoon’ phase!
This is called the honeymoon phase because you feel less nauseous, notice reduced hunger pangs resulting in more energy. People will start complimenting you for your glow now. Enjoy them!
Your baby bump may be slightly visible now just in time for you to share the news with the world. Go ahead, search a rooftop and shout out to the world.
The second trimester kicks in when you step foot into Week 13 taking you all the way up to Week 27. With the arrival of the second trimester, your pregnancy-related symptoms will also take a bit of a backseat.
You can almost kiss goodbye to nausea, odd hunger pangs, tender breasts and gain more zeal to deal with your pregnancy. You would have gained your appetite and started getting more food cravings. Well, munch on them guilt-free. Just be cautious not to eat raw or undercooked meat so that you can avoid stomach infections.
While the tiring and incessant nausea might have reduced, there are few things you can expect during this trimester.
But, hey, Cheer up! It’s not just these symptoms. There’s a whole of good things happening too.
Now that you have an idea on what to expect in terms of your body changes, let’s see what to expect with respect to your growing baby.
Your baby is at its most active during this trimester. Right about at Week 20, most moms-to-be feel their baby’s kicks. But worry not, some take longer to experience them.
Your baby which starts at the size of lemon grows up to the size of lettuce during the second trimester. Weighing in at 28 grams, you can expect the baby to grow up to 2 lbs (0.91kgs).
Remember the heart beats you heard during the first-trimester scan, that tiny little heart is working more now to pump blood to all other developing organs in your baby’s body inside your womb. Few other things that you can expect during this trimester are:
There’s a whole lot of other exciting things happening which you can use to bond with your baby while they are in the womb.
So, relax and chill Mom-to-be. Eat well, take ample rest and enjoy the most wonderful phase of pregnancy.
