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.

The test said that i would be having a little girl. on Feb 25, 2008 i had my 21 week ultrasound and indeed confirm i am having a girl. i would like to thank you all. my husband and i want to have a girl really badly since we have 2 handsome little boys. plus this being our last child. now our family will be complete. i was skeptical at first, but i do believe in you all. i will gratefully tell all my friends about fortunebaby and how wonderful the predictions are. thank you.

You were right! I had an ultrasound today at 16 weeks and its definatly a BOY! We are so excited we have 3 girls already and this will be our 1st son!!!!!!!!!! so thanks.

I don't know how you do it but I was very skeptical when I did this gender predictor test but figured what the heck it's fun and it's not that expensive and you offer a refund if you aren't accurate. I did this in August 2007 when we found out we were expecting. In October, I had genetic testing performed and they were able to determine the sex of the baby through chomosomes. Well, they informed us we were indeed having a little boy just as Fortune Baby predicted. As I said, I don't know how you did it but you did and that is very cool. Thank you.

After having 4 WONDERFUL, DARLING BOYS, my husband and I were VERY DESPERATE to have a girl!!! My husband and I decided that 5 children was our absolute limit! I came across your website totally by accident one day. ALL of 2007 said we would conceive a girl!!! I found out in June 2007 that we were expecting!! I had my ultrasound on Sept. 21st. I have never been so nervous in my life! The tech told me, ITS A GIRL!!!! I was in total shock!! I asked her to check again because I already have 4 boys. She responded that she is SURE it IS a GIRL!!!! WOO!! HOO!! I told some acquaintances last November about your website, and they ALL LAUGHED AT me when I told them your calendar predicted we would conceive a GIRL ANY month in the year 2007!! Now look who has the last laugh--ME!!! I am so thrilled with your website, I am actually going to pay to have business cards made up advertising your website and hand them out to ANYONE AND EVERYONE who is interested!!!! I have told TONS of people about your site and how you were CORRECT!!! THANK YOU FORTUNE BABY FOR MAKING OUR DREAM OF HAVING A BABY GIRL COME TRUE!!! Sept. 21, 2007 will FOREVER be the HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!!!!!
