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 wanted to let you know that last year I signed up and took you prediction test on if we would have a boy or a girl. I was very skeptical at first about doing it, but decided to try it anyway. I had taken the test not to long after we found out I was pregnant, and being that we had two boys already we were very anxious to find out what we were going to have. Well your baby gender predictor test predicted that we were going to have a girl. And yes I am very happy to report your baby gender predictor test was right. We found out we were having a girl in August of last year by an ultra sound. I gave birth to our beautiful baby girl in December of last year. I couldn't believe the test worked. I would recommend this to anyone. Don't hesitate to do it. I am a true believer in it. Thank you.

I just wanted to write and say how thankful I am for your website. I have two boys and was desperate for a girl. I found your website and decided to follow your rules. It took 5 months for me to fall pregnant but it was worth the wait. At my 20 week scan I was told they were 85% sure I was having a girl but couldn't be 100%. I wouldn't believe it until I saw it for myself and you were right - I gave birth to a girl. My sons are delighted with their new baby sister. I do not plan on having anymore children but have already passed your website onto two of my friends. Once again I would like to say thank you very much for the advice. I couldn't have done it without you!! Many Thanks!

I am the mother of two beautiful sons. I am pregnant again and of course I was hoping for a girl this time. Your gender test revealed that I was going to have another boy. I tried every other gender prediction thing out there and they all said I was going to have a girl. I just had an ultrasound three days ago and guess who was right? IT'S A BOY! I'm not disappointed like I thought I might be. He's healthy and growing well. It made me realize just how blessed I am to be the mother of three healthy boys. I would definitely recommend fortunebaby gender predictor test to other mother's to be! Thank you again.

Hi I did this gender predictor test for my friend when she was 3 months and today she is 21 1/2 weeks and she finally went to the doctor. You guys predicted that it would be a boy, and sure enough it is a boy. I was in a shock and could not believe it. Couple other websites told her that it would be a girl and also the chinese gender said it would be a girl too. So you guys were right, I don't know how you did it. Im really excited because i did the 1 year (2006) test,since me and my fiance are going to start trying to conceive in august. Im really lucky because the test said girl for the whole year. We already have 2 boys so im hoping you guys are right. We're crossing are fingers. Thanks A lot!
