Second Trimester Pregnancy

As you enter month four and the second trimester of pregnancy, some exciting changes are beginning to take place. By week 14, your baby has grown to about three and one half inches and is now approximately the size of a lemon. During the second trimester of pregnancy, which lasts through week 27, prenatal visits will continue every four weeks. At these visits, your weight and blood pressure will be monitored and your urine tested for protein and sugar. Fundal height may be determined by measuring the area from the pubic bone to the top of the uterus to help monitor fetal growth. Other tests that may be offered during the second trimester include: Screening tests for birth defects Glucose screening test Ultrasound Many expectant mothers find the second trimester of pregnancy the most enjoyable as first trimester symptoms subside and your energy returns. If you are in good health, this is also a good time to settle into an aerobic exercise routine such as walking, swimming or cycling. Second trimester exercise can reduce back pain, help maintain blood sugar levels, increase energy and help you sleep better. You should continue to eat a balanced diet that includes grains, fruits, vegetables, proteins and dairy. The average woman requires only 150 additional daily calories during pregnancy – about the same number of calories in one cup of whole milk. If your weight was normal before pregnancy, you should gain around 1-2 pounds per week during this trimester and between 25 and 35 pounds throughout  your entire pregnancy. By the end of the second trimester of pregnancy your baby has: Formed external sex organs Developed a sucking reflex Fully formed lungs (although they aren’t yet functional) Developed [...]

An ultrasound may be done to determine the gestational age of your baby and any health risks or concerns you may have should be discussed. This is a good time to ask questions and to share important personal or family health information. Pregnancy sets off a number of hormonal changes, which are responsible for various symptoms in the early months. During the first trimester of pregnancy you might experience: Tender, enlarged breasts – it’s common for your breasts to grow and become tender as they prepare to produce milk for nursing. Discomfort usually lessens after the first trimester.

Naps and rest breaks are encouraged Nausea – thanks to hormonal changes, the majority of pregnant women experience some degree of nausea, which is usually worse in the morning.
