Second trimester of pregnancy


2nd Trimester Duration: Weeks 14 through Week 26
2nd trimester fetus development

The second trimester lasts from the fourteenth to the twenty-sixth week and is marked by rapid growth of the fetus. The baby's movement occurs during the second trimester at the fourteenth week. As you enter the second trimester, constipation and heartburn affect your body. During the fifteenth week, the baby will grow hair on its head and body. The body hair sheds before birth generally. Heartburn sets in, so avoid spicy foods. This is also the time during which your doctor can measure the fundus, or fundal height which is the height between your uterus and pelvic bone. This indicates to the doctor how the fetus is growing.

2nd trimester fetus development

Weeks 16 through 20 are a time of extreme growth for the unborn child. You will gain weight as the baby grows, and you will experience its movement constantly. You may also experience some cramping and toughness in the abdomen. Weeks 21 through 26 are marked by a slowdown in the development of the child. By the end of the second trimester, the fetus's vital systems, bones, organs and spinal cord have all developed. By the end of the 26th week, your energy will decrease as your body feeds the baby's body.

Fortune Baby Gender Predictor Reviews


Thousands of happy moms around the world successfully used Fortunebaby gender prediction test. We are delighted to share their gender prediction reviews about their experience with Fortune Baby.

I had been looking on the web for baby gender predictors, mostly the old wives tale variety of sorts since the Chinese gender predictor test was telling me I should have been expecting a boy. I was pregnant with my second (and last) child, our first was a boy which the Chinese gender predictor was right about, so seeing that they were predicting a second boy for me left me little hope in having the girl my husband and I desperately wanted. Ultrasound after ultrasound didn't show us anything. I am diabetic and was going for ultrasounds at the very least once a month (sometimes more) and every time this child was turned, or had its legs crossed, it just didn't want to be known. To make a long story short, I stumbled across your site and figured what the heck, it wasn't a big cost and with the 100% satisfaction I figured I had very little to loose. Well your method predicted a girl for us! I was at least hopeful that there would be shopping for some pink things in my future though I wasn't certain. My due date came and finally we'd find out what we were going to be having. I was dumbfounded when my doctor announced It's a GIRL!!! I will definitely pass on your site to other pregnant women I know. I am glad I came across it!

Hi I was just writing to let you know we had our ultrasound yesterday and our baby is a boy!!!! That is what you predicted , we have three girls so this is pretty exciting for us , thanks so much for your gender predictor it gave us a little false hope until we found out for sure.I will sned all my pregnant friends to your site. Thanks so much.

I just wanted to let you know you were right. You said it would be a girl and according to the ultra sound we're having a girl. We are very excited!!!
