Second Trimester Begins: Weeks 13 to 17 of Pregnancy

Here's to hoping you're no longer feeling nauseated or exhausted! Right now your baby's brain and eyes are making dramatic strides each day. Learn all about it.

Your Changing Body

You'll likely begin to gain about a pound a week from this point until your baby is born, but the exact number can vary from week to week. And your waistline isn't the only thing expanding: Your uterus is also growing rapidly to accommodate your bundle of joy!

Your Developing Baby

Your baby is starting to plump up! Sweat glands have also developed, so your little one will have a natural cooling system when he or she is ready to meet the world.

Your Pregnancy

You're starting to show a lot more than before, so you won't be able to pass your pregnancy off as having too many treats from the taco truck at work. Get used to hearing "Congratulations!"
