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.
