Born & Birth stories



You are now in your second trimester! Your baby's crown to rump length is 3.2 to 4.5 inches long and he weighs approximately 1 ounce now. Your baby is about the size of the average fist.

Now that you are into your second trimester, you may be starting the best part of your pregnancy. You will probably start to feel more energetic and you may get the `pregnancy glow`. Your uterus is beginning to swell week by week and you can follow its progress by locating the top of the uterus. The position of the top of the uterus will continue to gradually move up your abdomen, from beneath the pubic line to above your navel. Maternity clothes are probably necessary now. You might also experience hemorrhoids, which are painful dilated blood vessels around or inside the anus.

Bones are formingAt this time, your baby's face is becoming more developed. The cheeks and bridge of his nose appear and the ears move from the sides of his neck to much higher on his head. The eyes continue to come closer together. A big development from this week onward is the development of lanugo. Lanugo is the fine hair that grows over almost your entire baby. The hairs grow in whirled patterns that follow the grain of his skin. These patterns later give way to your baby's fingerprints. The lanugo will be shed before birth and replaced by thicker, coarser hairs. Your baby's thyroid gland has matured and starts to produce hormones. If your baby is a boy, the prostate will appear and the ovaries descend from the abdomen into the pelvis in baby girls.

If you are having the Chorionic Villus sampling test (to check for Down's syndrome) it's done round about now.

The embryo`s soft cartilage is now being replaced with ` real` chalk bones.

Your baby has eyebrows, but no eyelashes. Fine, light hair also begins to grow.

Officially the second trimester....I have A LOT of work to do around this place!

kimberly.giet@gmail.com - 5 days ago
Jamie, hope your baby is ok. That would be scary especially since you already had a bad experience. Try not to be too stressed out. Baby is probably just dodging the doppler like my little one :-)

jamie86 - 6 days ago
I'm not feeling much, I actually have a doppler and can't find the hb anymore. I'm so worried since I went through the same thing earlier this year and it didn't turn out good.

alaina698 - 7 days ago
Yay!! started feeling the baby consistently a few days ago!

alaina698 - 15 days ago
This is my 3rd baby and with my second I definitely felt movement by this point. I am not feeling anything with this one and can still button my pants so I am not getting any bigger! It worries me even though i have heard the heartbeat twice.

RachRiv - 24 days ago
Yes I asked my doctor about that and she said it will be done with blood work! Thank goodness. :) So relieved. I think my pregnancy is backwards.. I barely even knew I was pregnant, but once I hit week 14 I am always nauseous. Strange

lissie**** - 25 days ago
They have a newer test that is done with mothers blood that tests for DS! Kind of awesome and risk free.

lissie**** - 25 days ago
No, I haven't. I don't think in my case it's worth the risk so I just got the other tests to give me a good idea if there were any likelihood to DS or other issues. I'll turn 35 a 4.5 months after baby gets here so I barely didn't get grilled about all that.

RachRiv - 29 days ago
Hi everyone :) I am so happy to be in the second trimester. Being 35, I have to go for the amniocentesis. 'm kind of scared. Has anyone ever went for this test? ~ Rachel

lissie**** - 31 days ago
deebo// sorry to hear about your bleed. Glad you were able to see your baby though!

lissie**** - 31 days ago
3 miles with 3 kids IS impressive! It's too hot here for me to brave that! I have 4 kids 6, 5, 3, 19 months. Its been triple digits and miserable. But it does cool off at night. I won't take kids out at night though.

mybabyshane01 - 32 days ago
I have to brag! I walked three miles with three (4 i suppose counting this one!)kids!!! I am slowly getting some energy and my tummy is just now starting to show. Not many people know yet as it was my new years resolution to NOT get pregnant this year! I had just started my first semester of college to become an OB/RN (the ones who do all the work while baby is coming) and so to avoid negativity i am still keeping it quiet! Must say how proud I am of myself i successfully completed my first semester and am awaiting fall classes to begin!

deebo - 34 days ago
I'm still sick.. but!! I had an ultrasound a few days ago to check the status of the hemorrhage.. I get results in a week, but they let me see the baby! I wasn't allowed by an angry tech at my last US.. this tech even printed a picture for me. This is the first time since getting my positive that I've felt like I can feel emotional attachment to baby. I just hope the damn nausea ends already!!! I'm sitting here like.. hoping it's not a repeat of my first pregnancy.. nausea for 7 months. I want to take my kids to the fireworks on the 1st, so I hope I have the energy. I am still feeling sooo tired.

nini210 - 36 days ago
hello week 14 ;) December cant get here soon enough! =)

jh1983 - 37 days ago
This is my third as well. I lost a bit of weight from hyperemesis right at 6 weeks and haven't gained any back yet, as I'm still trying to gain my appetite back. I don't understand how I could lose weight and still look exactly the chubby same in my middle lol. I would rather have a hard bump. Also noticed that my butt deflated. What the heck! That was my favorite feature before. :/ now I'm a flat mess.

lissie**** - 37 days ago
I was showing by 14 weeks this time! But not with my first.

brittplus3 - 37 days ago
Jh- I am showing! This is my third though!

jh1983 - 37 days ago
Woo hoo. Week 14 and weaning off my zofran pump. This pregnancy is looking up. FINALLY. starting to get excited about it. Has anyone started showing yet? I know it's more common with the second pregnancy plus. I still look chubby in the middle. I'm hoping to start showing soon :)

brittplus3 - 38 days ago
Kathy- I hear ya. Still sick here too. All day! And the exhaustion hasn't gone away either..

kathy=^.^= - 39 days ago
Ugh... Why am I still feeling sick?

shaym007 - 43 days ago
Ya I definetely have been feeling a lot better this week!! Energy and nausea is much better

Juliemom24 - 43 days ago
Oh, also my energy is slowly coming back. How is everyone else feeling?

Juliemom24 - 43 days ago
I finalllllly have internet in my new place. Thank goodness! I also think I felt baby this week! Wohoooooo!

lissie**** - 45 days ago
I've had moments where I'm like, 'was that the baby?' but nothing concrete for sure, you know?

lissie**** - 45 days ago
Dr asked today if I was feeling baby. NOPE still not. But she could tell baby was moving around like crazy when she was getting hb

shaym007 - 45 days ago
I feel the baby. I've probably 2-3 times a day, maybe so,e days will be once, usually if I sit with my leg crunched up, or when I lay down to go to bed, I feel very small flips. Metal- mommy what's the sex of the baby??!!!

almostebony - 47 days ago
I've been feeling baby too. Especially after I eat fruit or meat. Congratulations on finding out the sex metal mommy.

Metal-Mommy - 48 days ago
although i do think i already feel this baby when the baby flips over lol.

Metal-Mommy - 48 days ago
I have a posterior placenta! Which means.. i should feel the kicks earlier this time around! YAY! I also know the sex of the baby! :)

begin.again - 49 days ago
The first EDD was Nov 26. I'm sticking with that. I always have been. Julie- hopefully within the next week or so you will feel your baby move. I didnt feel my baby move until I was around 15/16 weeks with my first LO. Is this your first pregnancy? The kicks are getting stronger but I can't see them because my boobs are too big. When I look down all I see are my boobs. LOL Almostebony- I had an ultrasound last week ( 14 weeks 4 days) and the ultrasound tech told me what she thinks it is. I'm not going to get my hopes up because I know early scans for gender aren't very accurate. I'll find out for sure in a few weeks but we don't want to find out the sex of the baby.

shaym007 - 49 days ago
Yay 14 weeks today!! This heartburn is crazy!! Like out if control crazy, I can't chew the tums cause they make me sick, and I've been eating chewable ones and it doesn't seem to help... Blah and I have so long to go!

lissie**** - 49 days ago
yes hope he is right ;)

almostebony - 50 days ago
Hello beautiful ladies. Hope everyone is well. My due date is Dec. 6, I'm pleased to finally be in the second trimester! Has anyone found out the sex of their baby yet? I had my first appointment at 14 weeks and 2 days and my obgyn said he was pretty sure it was a boy from what he could tell. I already have two girls, so fingers crossed he's right!

lissie**** - 51 days ago
I don't know yet. My first is a girl then 3 boys.

anxiousmami - 51 days ago
Lissie-Yes it felt great waking up and cleaning an. Having a little coffee before kids woke up. I thought i felt moving/flipping the other day, I think I was laying but it felt way too high and too powerful for it to be baby so I rubbed it off as gas. Other than that no movements. So how many moms know what they are having this soon? i currently have 3 girls, I am hoping for a boy, and healthy too of course!

lissie**** - 51 days ago
meggz// glad you got vacation!

lissie**** - 51 days ago
//anxiousmama// it will be good to see your baby! Glad you got some rest. //Juliesmom//I am not feeling baby yet either. But my placenta is in front again so I probably won't be feeling bubs for a while ;(

lissie**** - 51 days ago
metal-mommy it won't let me zoom in on the pic!

Juliemom24 - 51 days ago
begin.again- I'm so jelly that you are already feeling the baby! I lay still at night trying to feel it but nothing so far.

anxiousmami - 52 days ago
Hi ladies, I basically got on introduced myself amd went into hiding. So 14wks. I have yet to have my first prenatal appt. I havent found a place to go yet. I finally got a good night's sleep last night and I think ill make some calls today, I want to finally see and be excited too. Not that I am not excited but part of the fun is the appts.

Metal-Mommy - 52 days ago
Girls, i need your help! I uploaded a pic of the gender... the tech wouldnt say either way and i cant tell!! I want to figure this out so i can by a single outfit wrap it up as a gift and reveal my guess on fathers day for my husband! lol its the last pic in my album

meggz - 52 days ago
Yay 14 weeks today! I went on a mini vaca with thw family and boy am I drained! We're about an hour and a half from home now... can't wait to get into my comfy bed, even though we've only been gone 2 days haha! Glad to see the activity picking up! :)

lissie**** - 52 days ago
shay// they don't believe her on her lmp! and they didn't go by the ultrasound either so I don't think what they are doing makes any sense.

shaym007 - 52 days ago
I would go by whatever they told you.... My date has changed 3 times by what baby was measuring, but they always go by my lmp. The original date, 12-12. Baby was measuring smaller at my first two u/s and then at my Hurd baby was a bit bigger :) she said their growth always fluctuates. But to go by the first date given.

lissie**** - 52 days ago
begin.again I don't know what to tell you. They need to listen to what you are saying though. //Metal-mommy// fun you get to see baby!

Metal-Mommy - 53 days ago
ohhh so excited to go to my ultrasound appt tomorrow!!! YAY!! I cant wait to see my wittle baby!! got to hear the heartbeat last week too! gahhh i love being pregnant!

begin.again - 55 days ago
What do you think!? What should I go by? I felt the baby move at 11 weeks (my calculations) but around 9 weeks their calculations. The movements are getting a lot stronger and the baby is very active (although to haven't felt much today).

lissie**** - 55 days ago
wow what idiots. seriously that is ridiculous. So sorry :(

begin.again - 55 days ago
Yes, I told them several times. Yesterday when I asked them again they looked at me like I was crazy. They said the ultrasound is accurate and measuring right where I should be. I think 14 weeks is closer to what I thought. I was too far along therefore they couldn't do the Down syndrome test.

lissie**** - 55 days ago
Did you try to tell them it was Feb 19! Sometimes they just won't listen. Which is crazy.
