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.

sher-baby - 9 days ago
On a lighter note. Is anyone still waiting for there second trimester Libido to return!!! Lol....I'm feeling really bad for DH! I'd just rather sleep than do anything!

supermom87 - 10 days ago

supermom87 - 10 days ago
My Bp fown low way to low I'm in and out of knowing where I'm at gotta see a heart specialist they got my IV fluids set at 500

supama - 10 days ago
Sherbaby- ive been getting early braxton hicks. I always get them all throughout-its so crazy.

supama - 10 days ago
Supermom-glad ur starting to feel better. IV can do wonders. I got food poisoning at 31wks w/my daughter & it was MISERABLE. They admitted me for dehydration that was causing contractions-i totally feel ur pain. U still in the hospital?

supermom87 - 10 days ago
I'm starting to feel little better

mandykat760 - 11 days ago
I ended up in the hospital with the flu with my last pregnancy. It took 4 bags of fluids to make me pee. I felt so much better after the IV.

lexy-b - 11 days ago
I hope you feel better soon supermom87 :)

sher-baby - 11 days ago
Any one having tightening in their uterus/maybe Braxton hicks??? I think I'm having them. They don't hurt at all, I just feel tightening and hardening just above my pelvic bone... It's kinda weird! Normal or not so much??

supermom87 - 11 days ago
Well my ob has admitted me to the hospital she seems to think it may have been something I ate

supermom87 - 11 days ago
They said it was possible it could be a virus even with medicine I can't keep anything down I feel myself getting dehydrated but I feel helpless cause I'm steady throwing up and diarrhea I've got a appointment with my ob today see what she says

sher-baby - 11 days ago
Babylove-lmao! That sounds about right!!! I think she'll be happy to have someone else to play with/boss around soon. Lol but she's been asking for a baby brother for about 1.5yrs now, so I think she'll be really happy until maybe 6 months in...then she'll start to wonder if he/she will ever stop crying! Lmao!

babylove5 - 11 days ago
Sher my daughter was excited with her first brother too! When she got to her second and third brother she was over the excitement. She says they mess up her stuff. lol

sher-baby - 11 days ago
Supermom- what did the ER say when you first went??

babylove5 - 11 days ago
Supermom I had a stomach virus with my second pregnancy and couldn't keep anything down. The baby will take food that it needs from you even if you're not eating. The only thing you have to worry about is staying hydrated. Drink Gatorade and try to eat soup with salt. My son was fine.

supermom87 - 12 days ago
Still very sick going to my ob today and if she won't see me I'm going back to ER what food that I am not throwing up its going straight through me I still feel dehydrated this is pure misery I've missed 2 days of work already in scared about my health my baby and my job 😓

supama - 12 days ago
@Supermom - how you feelin?

sher-baby - 13 days ago
Very true...I'm just chalking up and thing I feel to gas. We told my daughter last night and OMG is she excited!!! It was soo funny! She was telling the dogs, showing them the u/s pics...oh, it was priceless and just how I thought she would react!

babylove5 - 13 days ago
I have been in my pants extender for a month now. I have a nice baby bump. I always say my uterus is big from having so many children. I was laying flat on my back and felt a flutter like someone poking me gently from inside. They say at 16 weeks you should feel movement but I think a lot of women just think its gas before then. I am sure some of us are feeling movements even though they are not strong.

sher-baby - 14 days ago
Superma- I'm with you!! I've been wearing my maternity pants for about 2 weeks because my reg pants are just not comfy by mid day... They actually hurt!! I too am normally small... Normally I wear a size 4, and I deff have a lil round belly that's there in the am and even bigger in the pm!

supermom87 - 14 days ago
At ER my lil sweet pea is doing great in there as for me I feel like crap and I'm hurting waiting to see what Dr says is going going on I'm thinking being dehydrated is why I'm cramping so bad and I'm dehydrated well my theory is it's a stomach virus

supama - 14 days ago
Omg...so im normally rather petite. Started feeling like i was pre-period pudge over the last couple wks, poppin open my pants buttons after lunch, wearing my size-larger jeans (thank goodness i get to wear casual clothes to work). Getting the bloat at night. But, i seriously woke up and totally popped...lil round belly, no bloat! Is anyone else like totally showing yet? I havent told anyone yet-especially work, but mannnn, im gonna have to get creative with clothes. Or just let them wonder & gossip, lol

sher-baby - 14 days ago
So with my Doppler my baby's hb has been mostly under 150....sometimes it does up to 153-155, but then it usually goes back down to maybe 143, 144, 148. So maybe a boy. Im pretty sure anything I've been feeling is gas! I'm Sure it's not baby yet...plus, from what I've read at this point the baby's bones aren't really solidified yet. They are hardening more and more everyday but for the most part the bones are still really soft, more like a cartilage

babylove5 - 14 days ago
We are on our way back from vacation. It has been a blast but the drive is not fun with three small boys. I feel like I may be over the morning sickness but I have said that before and it comes back. Ill be 15 weeks in 2 days. I found out last time at 15 weeks that I was having a boy and they were right! I went at 12 weeks and she said it looked like a teepee in between the legs so who knows. My son was clearly defined at 15 weeks. I can't wait either way I'm excited!

supermom87 - 15 days ago
Yeah I know what you mean I will be glad when I don't have to guess if it's the baby

lexy-b - 15 days ago
Supermom87 I swear I feel the baby too, for the last couple days. This is #3 for me, I felt my daughter at 17 weeks, my son around 16 weeks. I figured it was kinda early but I'd still rather picture it being my baby & not gas haha.

supermom87 - 15 days ago
My Dr told me there was no way it was the baby it has to be gas I'm feeling ehh but I've had 4 already and this don't feel like gas and also I been going through vomiting spells and diarrhea I sometimes wonder if that's what I'm feeling in my stomach or baby

sher-baby - 15 days ago
ill be 14 weeks tomorrow, so i'm wondering if i'll start to feel the baby move some time in that week. i'm not even sure if ill remember what it feels like right away considering my last pregnancy was 6yrs ago, well see i guess.

supama - 16 days ago
@Supermom i feel the baby...have all thruthis week. Usually its after ive eaten& im sitting at my desk that i really notice, but no denying. I know that feeling. Ive also noticed early braxton hicks this week...i always get them all throughout my pregnancies, & they started a couple days ago.

supermom87 - 16 days ago
Hi ladies hope everyone is doing well I think I'm going crazy I keep swearing I feel the baby move but I know it's too early 😣

sher-baby - 17 days ago
Lol...that's pretty funny babylumpp!! I'm the polar opposit...I can't get in the mood to save my life! It's weird because normally I'm such a horn-dog! Now it's like I could be a nun! I don't even think about it!

Babylumpp2015 - 17 days ago
Never heard of the skull theory, def will look into it. Both my girls were always 178/179 as well but this babe has never been over 148 so I'm very convinced this a boy! This pregnancy has been completely different than my others too. Sher-baby I have been surprisingly wanting sex more than ever to the point where my dh has to peel me off him & calm me down Haha he better enjoy it while it lasts.

sher-baby - 18 days ago
Hi ladies I'm sneaking over from week 13, I'll be 14 weeks on Saturday but I have a personal question!!!! How is everyone's sex life??? Mine is nonexistent...I'm not in the mood at all! I think we've had sex 4 times since I got my bfp, Which is not normal for us...I feel gross...look gross...but poor DH! Babylumpp- this is baby number 2 and I too am huge!! I have been bloated since I got my bfp and it's just gotten worse, It never subsided.

floydianslip2 - 18 days ago
Halesss, I’ll be in week 15 tomorrow, so it won’t be quiet in there for too long. :) Congrats on the boy, that’s so exciting!!! Well, the HB on mine has been in the 170s, and both of my boys were in the low 150s, I wonder if this one will turn out to be a girl… The Chinese gender predictor says girl, but it said girl last time too and that clearly wasn’t the case, ha ha! I’ve never heard the skull theory before, I’ll have to pay attention to that next time I go in. That is really interesting!

halesss7410 - 18 days ago
Hey girls- I'm heading to week 15 but it's so silent over there.:). I actually found out early with all of my kids and they haven't been wrong. My first was a girl - def 3 lines at 14 weeks My second was def 3 lines at 15 weeks And this one is a BOY! I'm going to scan again to get peace of kind but there isn't any denying it:) it's not swollen parts it's testicules and all. I used to work in ultrasound before quitting my job to stay home with dd#2 who is 1 so I always have had as many scan as I want. Have any of you ever looked into the skull theory? I haven't ever believed in any theories but all have pointed to boy. My girls hb were both 178 and his was 157 and now is 140 or below. Chinese calendar was correct on all (but that's for fun too) and now the skull theory. They say at 12 week-ish scan girls are well rounded forheads and boys have a cave man brow! Sure enough he looks so diff! Def caveman. Haha

floydianslip2 - 18 days ago
Beth, Holy cow, 10lbs 3oz?! Man alive, and I thought my last one was on the large side at 8lb 7oz! Lol! Well, I’m glad that the u/s went well. Hard to believe that in a few more weeks many of us will be finding out the sex of our babies already! Babylumpp, I don’t have sickness at all anymore, thank goodness. But I am having my third too and feel that my bump is way bigger than it should be. So happy with my maternity pants right now cuz there is NO way I’d be able to get jeans buttoned up at this point!

Babylumpp2015 - 19 days ago
Hi ladies! First time posting although I've been following you all. This website has def been quiter this time around. Is anyone else still sick? I was feeling better around week 11 and was so excited to be in the clear of the first trimester sickness and it came back at high speed last week. Constant migranes and always feeling sick or getting sick. Anyone else in the same boat? Also, how's everyone's baby bump doing? This is third baby but I feel way bigger than I should be at 14 weeks!

BethQ - 19 days ago
Oh! And while it doesn't give a crown to rump length, it did tell me that baby weighs approximately 4 oz already! Seriously, I'm afraid I'm going to have another huge baby. My 3rd in 2012 was 10 lbs 3 oz @ 37 weeks!

BethQ - 19 days ago
Ultrasound was good! Baby measuring 15 weeks instead of 14, so due date changing. Heartbeat a strong 167! Also got an excellent goods shot. The tech said she didn't want to say because it's early, but showed me and let me form my own opinion. I didn't see 3 lines, but definitely no tiny turtle either!We'll see in a few weeks again!

floydianslip2 - 19 days ago
Beth, one of my coworkers that is 14 weeks went in and had an ultrasound done on Friday and they asked her if she’d like them to check and see. Of course she said yes! Anyway, they said that they could make a “prediction”, but that it’s not 100% this early because the girl parts are still so swollen they can look like boy parts. They told her that it looks like a boy, but they can’t be sure until her next u/s. She also told me that with her last pregnancy she had this same thing happen, they told her girl, and then at her next u/s it was a boy. So I’m thinking probably not, but who knows? Either way it's still fun to try! :)

BethQ - 20 days ago
Ultrasound tomorrow because the midwife can't get baby to cooperate and let her hear a heartbeat clearly. Curious if anyone has ever found out the gender this early via ultrasound? I've seen websites that say yes and that say no.

mommylh - 22 days ago
I felt baby move yesterday. First pregnancy I felt at 20 weeks, second at 18 weeks, and yes I was defiantly shocked to have felt baby move this time so early, but it was unmistakable.

mishaan - 24 days ago
well i felt my first child is 14 weeks and as for the current pregnancy i felt the move at 13 weeks excited about the sex of my child

floydianslip2 - 24 days ago
I’ve been experiencing something, but it’s hard to describe… It’s almost like a popping sensation, but not quite gas bubbles. I think it might be baby. I felt my first move at 20 weeks, my second at 16, and I’ve heard that it’s possible to feel baby move even earlier than that in some cases.

RJean - 24 days ago
I am finding out for sure! I have absolutely no patience along with the fact that I also have two boys and would want to know if we were getting a boy or girl. No preference on my end (I know how to raise boys...it's girls that I'm clueless with). But I was wondering if anyone has felt their LO move yet? I've felt a lot of little bumps and pokes that I try and convince myself are gas bubbles, what have you ladies experienced? My last pregnancy had an anterior placenta, so I didn't feel him until 21 weeks and my first pregnancy was around 16.

mommylh - 24 days ago
Agreed on the slowness! You know I've been throwing the gender reveal idea around, I have a boy and a girl, and found out with both prior. I want a surprise, but I don't know if I can handle the wait and resist the wanting to decorate shop etc and have definite gendered things. I have till November till my next scan, but I'm thinking I will just have them write it down and seal it in an envelope, that way I still have the option of finding out if I want to, or see how long I can hold off. The idea of a surprise is exciting BUT I'm a need to know type person :)

floydianslip2 - 24 days ago
I am officially in the 2nd trimester! WOO HOO!!! Halesss, I agree, the site is so slow this time around, it’s kind of depressing. I am in every day, but I don’t often comment because I feel like I’d be talking to myself. But the few ladies that are in here are great, and it’s fun chatting when we do chat. In regards to the gender, I will absolutely find out! I have two boys and if it’s a girl I definitely want to know. If you think of fun ideas for revealing let me know, because I’m not into gender reveal parties either. I think the concept is cute, but I’m just not much of a party person. Speaking of, baby shower… yes or no? I’m thinking no, but my best friend wants to throw me one if it’s a girl.
