Week by week
Welcome to the middle part of your pregnancy, the second trimester! This is said to be the most energetic and comfortable trimester on the pregnancy calendar for mums-to-be, so if you’re between 13 and 26 weeks, we’re here to help you enjoy the ride. It’s time for healthy, glossy tresses and that enviable pregnancy ‘glow’ ... how are you feeling? If you’re going through it right now, make a post and tell us all about it.
Your second trimester baby
Your little one is busy getting much bigger. At 13 weeks pregnant, it’ll be the size of a peach and grow to the size of an iceberg lettuce by week 26 - wow! There’ll be many milestones for baby in the second trimester. Its lungs will take shape, it’ll develop tastebuds and its tiny little fingernails and toenails will form ... even fingerprints can be taken by the end. He or she will develop a fine hair called lanugo that covers all over its body, and by the end of the second trimester, you should be feeling baby kicking about. Have you felt any kicks or ‘butterflies’ yet?
Second trimester pregnancy symptoms
Your pregnancy symptoms should tend to ease off a little and you’ll probably find you have a lot more energy to play with ... yes! You might be salivating more and prone to an irritated, stuffy nose, which is common. There’s also the big 20-week scan to look forward to, so remember to share your scan photos with us here on Karimums.
