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 also have been experiencing ligament pain. The things us women deal with to bring kids in the My doc appt went good yesterday. I got a scan in the doctors office and I got a referral for the big anatomy ultrasound. I'm going to go get that done in three excited!

tabby607 - 61 days ago
Is anyone Feeling any movement yet???? I wanna feel this baby move like yesterday grr :)

beanaleena - 70 days ago
KatieJones- Have you stopped bleeding? hope so!!!!! My morning sickness aka all day sickness hell has slowed down some. Its not perfect, I still feel like sleeping all day. On the upside, I am able to actually eat. Is everyone else feeling better?? Also, this is my only pregnancy I felt nervous. In the past few years my sister has two children with what we now know are genetic syndrome. I have had 3 healthy babies. However, now knowing that what my sisters children have is hereditary, I am so nervous. I go in tomorrow for genetic counseling. Anyone else have siblings with terminally ill children? I have had several miscarriages, so I am beginning to wonder if the babies I have lost have been affected by this chromosomal abnormality. - 74 days ago
The group it a brand new please feel free to join :) I intend on coming here too it's just so dead :( too early I suspect xx - 74 days ago
Still here ! After a month of bleeding I finally made it to the second trimester! I will create a Facebook group today for mamas who would like to join. Be back later xxx

shaindylrb - 77 days ago
how come i can't see myself on the list of members in week 14? i only have one day left in this week, but nonetheless how do i do it?

babyflump - 85 days ago
I felt my first flutters with my eldest at 16 weeks but can't remember with my 2nd. I'm pretty sure it is? Are you having any morning sickness? I had a random spout on Saturday morning but in total I've only had 3 episodes. Are you going to find out the sex?

mamaford77 - 85 days ago
I never feel them that early, but I'm a bit more fluffier than some women lol. Many women, especially moms that have been pregnant before, report feeling them earlier. I usually feel my babies move around 17-20 weeks.

babyflump - 86 days ago
Hi ladies I'm pregnant with baby #3 and I'm sure I'm feeling little flutters. Is it possible to feel them this early??

mamaford77 - 88 days ago
Well, here I am alone in my week again lol. So happy to be in the second trimester! I have HG so I'm not feeling great, but every week brings me closer to the end and to my sweet baby! Just 12 more days until the next appt and then we'll schedule the anatomy scan!

babylove5 - 102 days ago
I tell hubby I'm feeling sick when he wants to have sex. I know he has needs but so do I and since I'm pregnant with his child, mine take priority. Just my opinion. Lol

sher-baby - 102 days ago
Ha!!! poor dh's hand prob going to fall off any day now, if you know what I mean!!! Lmao! (Sorry if that's tmi!!..) I wish I knew what you were talking about but In order for me to know, id have to be having sex....aaaand we're not! Lol Sorry I can't help!

mandykat760 - 102 days ago
Everytime I have sex the next day I'm sick and stuck on the couch all day! Anyone else get this?

sher-baby - 103 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 - 104 days ago
And yep I'm still at hospital can't go home until Dr approves it which way they're talking no time soon

supermom87 - 104 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 - 104 days ago
Sherbaby- ive been getting early braxton hicks. I always get them all throughout-its so crazy.

supama - 104 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 - 104 days ago
I'm starting to feel little better

mandykat760 - 105 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 - 105 days ago
I hope you feel better soon supermom87 :)

sher-baby - 105 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 - 105 days ago
Well my ob has admitted me to the hospital she seems to think it may have been something I ate

supermom87 - 105 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 - 105 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 - 105 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 - 105 days ago
Supermom- what did the ER say when you first went??

babylove5 - 105 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 - 105 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 - 106 days ago
@Supermom - how you feelin?

sher-baby - 106 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 - 107 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 - 107 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 - 107 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 - 108 days ago 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 - 108 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, 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
