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.

About 4 years ago, I bought the gender predictor and it said we were having a boy who is now 3 yrs old. We started planning to have another baby as a playmate for my son, (since we have a 13 yr old daughter we wanted a boy for my son to have as a playmate). Thank you so much for helping us determine both our baby's sex. I would recommend the gender predictor for anyone. It works. Thanks

Dear Fortune Baby, I thought I was going to get an ultrasound at 20 weeks, but when my doctor said I can get one at 18 weeks, I was excited! So yesterday, I had my doctor's appointment and ultrasound at 18 weeks. I am very happy and excited to say that what you have predicted was indeed 110% accurate!!! You had predicted that I will have a baby girl and you are right on the dot! I already have 2 adorable boys, 3 yr old & 18 moths old, and now I'm having a GIRL!! How exciting is that?! Very, very exciting!! J A beautiful princess to add to our loving family, plus, May I add, I finally won't be outnumbered by testosterones in the family! YAY!!! LOL!! J I am very pleased and astonished on your ability and knowledge to determine the sex of the baby as well as predicting the sex of the baby. I definitely will HIGHLY recommend your site to my family, friends, & co-workers!! Thank you so much for your hope and inspiration and prediction!! Keep up the great and awesome work!! Thank you again, and May God Bless you and your families always.

I took the fortune baby test and it predicted a boy. Well I had my ultrasound done and I am in fact having a BOY!! Thanks Fortune Baby for such an accurate prediction. My husband is on cloud nine!! Thanks again.

I have used your tool with both of my pregnancy's, and it's been right BOTH times, even when a supposedly more scientific over the counter urine test said I was having a boy, your baby gender predictor test was right on and told us that we were having girls. I couldn't be happier!
