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.

I'll be hopping in her next week too:). This site is slow those this time:( disappointed. I too am debating in finding out or not:) but, I think I've decided to find out. I have two girls and if this is a boy I want to be able to do a boys nursery, I'll need clothes- etc. I don't want to just throw it together. Although I could do a gender neutral nursery. We shall see:) if it's a boy imgoing to find a fun way to tell ppl without doing a gender reveal - I'm not into those kind of parties personally. We have all if the holidays coming up and birthdays, I could be a simple birthday cake for the husband in pink or blue:) he would be over the moon excited- we both think this baby is another girl so it'll be a shock!

More stupid preg dreams... Dreamt my husband took up smoking pot and lied to me about it. Very emotional, woke up exhausted :/ Looking fwd to that part being over :(

1st.time.momma - 13 days ago
Yeah I agree, I just dont think I can wait that long. What I have planned to do is have the ultrasound tech find out but not let us know and put the one picture or pictures in an envelope. Then I want to go have a photo session and have blind folds on both hubby and I and throw paint at eachother. Id love to capture that moment when we find out and obviously the photographer with give us the paint once we put blind folds on.

Dec Baby - 13 days ago
I'm in two mind sets...part of me wants to find out the sex so I can be organised, but seriously, how fun would it be to get that surprise at birth?!! I'm really not sure what we're going to do yet! It will be very hard not to ask at our 20 week scan;)

1st.time.momma - 14 days ago
I will be hopping into this week tomorrow and I cant believe how time is flying by. Im so excited that this is the time to really enjoy my pregnancy. All the fun milestones. Is anyone going to find out gender?

Dec Baby - 14 days ago
Wow, I love reading the baby's weekly developments! My stomach is starting to pop out jeans are really feeling a little too snug around the waist, time to get out the maternity clothes!

1st.time.momma - 21 days ago

tripplets - 48 days ago
Timefor2 that makes the two of us...I feel as though am 7 - 8weeks...I have backsliden into absolute morning sickness...hoping to improve soon :-(

Timefor2 - 49 days ago
Hello week 14!!! As excited as I am to be here, I feel miserable this week! Just as I thought I was finally going to get some energy back and everything, I get sick! Now I am nauseous and exhausted for a totally different reason...great. I just want to feel better!

havingour3rd - 49 days ago
Hi mommies and mommies-to-be! Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. :) My name is Courtney and we surprisingly found out we are expecting our third! We have a son who's 3 and a daughter who's 1. My due date for this one is the exact same due date I had with my daughter... Feb 10th, but she decided to be a day late and was born on the 11th. We weren't planning for anymore after her, but things are finally starting to set in especially after our ultrasound this past Monday. Looking forward to going through this pregnancy with you all!

monkeybuttmommy2 - 55 days ago
Hey there ladies. Been a while since I've been on here. I am just curious if anyone is having any pain like pressure or clawing like sensation really low like in cervices area in the middle? I have suffered multiple losses but have only gotten this far along with my daughter. Drs. seem to think given my history that I am pretty much out of the woods but nonetheless I'm in panic mode. - 56 days ago
I was on holidays last week, just looking through to see if i missed anything but I'm off to week 15 today! still having nausea hoping it stops soon's lingering longer with this second pregnancy! I'm defiantly showing already it's crazy how much faster it's happening this time around!

NICOLA2010 - 56 days ago
yeh i had to stop mine.. but back on them now.. my blood results came back normal so thats good

NICOLA2010 - 56 days ago
konepich... cod is fine.. prob meant fish high in mercury.. so u have 2 boys.. were ur pregnancies similar? i cant stand pasta or anything heavy.. like my potatoes.. nothing too fried though.. cheese i love.. i eat fish only.. ususlly i love meat.. not anymore..

konepich - 57 days ago
The closest to brown rice I like is rice pilaf. It sucks to feel tire all the time especially if you little ones to take care of. Love fish but was told only 3 oz of it a week. That's like 1 bite! My boys did not like red meat in the first trimester and this one it can go either way on any given day. With the boys I was able to drink all type of fluid but this one its just a small coffee and the rest is iced water no lemon! I had to stop my prenatal pills for a bit because of the constipation and morning sickness. Now I'm just focusing it down.

NICOLA2010 - 58 days ago
oh girls ive been so tired all weekend.. also really light headed.. im thinking either baby having growith spurt or im lacking something.. rest for sure.. goes without saying.. but maybe little anemic.. been taking prenatal pills.. i had some breaded cod and potatoes with peas and i felt loads better.. so im just not eating what i need baby.. i tell ya.. i been havjng so many cravings.. hubby cooked weiners but i didnt want them.. i could taste so mich sodium in thrm and these are the better quality ones.. any red meat i cant eat.. but can eat fish.. urgh.. so ww brought a bag of frozen cod.. and i will just eat some eevery day for lunch.. finally also not so constipated.. ive been drinking just straight water instead of ice tea doh prob bad idea but i didnt want water before.. so i just put my water bottle in freezer

NICOLA2010 - 58 days ago
konepich... aww ur healthy weight.. depends on muscle seperation also.. hmm suck if u hsve a hernia... can u have brown rice?

konepich - 58 days ago
Nicola- I feel like I've been showing forever! Well at least to myself! 😄 went to the Dr and weigh in at 138.8 if it makes you feel better. This is our 3rd baby but 5th pregnancy. I'm full blood Asian so white rice is my stable carb. Told the Dr abt my belly button pain she thinks it could be a hernina.

NICOLA2010 - 58 days ago
so is anyone showing yet? i still have a practically flat tummy.. im 129lbs and 3rd kid crazy eh

NICOLA2010 - 58 days ago
konepich... isnt it frustrating... hope it goes sokn.. but many women have the whole pregnancy.. do u have carbs ? if so what kind? i know i should have brown bread or whole grain.. but i cant stand it. usually i like it.. think thats what kept me regular with my son.. tmi bht everyday i would poop and some largest poops ever lol cos i had lots of whole grain.. inreally need to dry at least dry cereal before bed instead of say chips lol..

konepich - 59 days ago
Haha! I am always constipated!!! And the pushing is the worst feeling because I feel like the baby is going to pop out! I've been eating dried prunes and dried plums along with fresh fruit and veggies with lots of liquid but by the love of golly I still can't poop!!!

NICOLA2010 - 59 days ago
i didnt even suffer consfipation with my daughter... my son i did a bit... but twice a week im constipated

NICOLA2010 - 59 days ago
yet i eat lots of fruit veggies and fibre... darn hormones

NICOLA2010 - 59 days ago
konepixh.. no belly button pain here but i was terribly comstipated today 4 dsys.. i hax to get hubby to take kids out.. i was practically giving birth.. in fact i dont rememeber being tht uncomfortable when i was pushing out a baby.. was soo bad.. urgh i still feel like ive got lots of poop in me even after pushing out solid amounts - 59 days ago
Konepich, I have bellybutton pain. It can get pretty bad sometimes. I know it's weird but mines gas.

konepich - 59 days ago
Does anyone else have belly button pain? I swear my belly button is ready to pop at any moment!!! - 65 days ago
Officially the second trimester....I have A LOT of work to do around this place! - 65 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 - 67 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 - 68 days ago
Yay!! started feeling the baby consistently a few days ago!

alaina698 - 76 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 - 85 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**** - 86 days ago
They have a newer test that is done with mothers blood that tests for DS! Kind of awesome and risk free.

lissie**** - 86 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 - 90 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**** - 92 days ago
deebo// sorry to hear about your bleed. Glad you were able to see your baby though!

lissie**** - 92 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 - 92 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 - 95 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 - 96 days ago
hello week 14 ;) December cant get here soon enough! =)

jh1983 - 97 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**** - 97 days ago
I was showing by 14 weeks this time! But not with my first.

brittplus3 - 98 days ago
Jh- I am showing! This is my third though!

jh1983 - 98 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 - 99 days ago
Kathy- I hear ya. Still sick here too. All day! And the exhaustion hasn't gone away either..

kathy=^.^= - 99 days ago
Ugh... Why am I still feeling sick?

shaym007 - 104 days ago
Ya I definetely have been feeling a lot better this week!! Energy and nausea is much better

Juliemom24 - 104 days ago
Oh, also my energy is slowly coming back. How is everyone else feeling?

Juliemom24 - 104 days ago
