Second trimester of pregnancy: full speed ahead

In the second trimester of pregnancy, many changes occur in the future mother’s body. For example, it finally becomes clear to all why you suddenly recovered: the uterus leaves the pelvic area, is now above the symphysis joint and looks like a small hill. Because of this, your figure is rounded, the waist gets bigger.

Under the action of hormones, the breast increases in size, the skin of the areola darkens, and colostrum gradually begins to stand out from the nipple. To prepare the mammary glands for feeding, rub them daily with a towel, and then take air baths.

In the second trimester of pregnancy, the stomach is rounded, and the waist continues to disappear. The fact that you have fallen into an “interesting” position becomes noticeable. And what about the baby?

He listens carefully to what is happening around, and shudders if he hears harsh sounds.

– By the 16th week of pregnancy, the laying of the internal organs of the unborn child and the formation of the placenta ends. Now she will be responsible for the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the baby and remove the waste products of exchange.

In addition, the placenta will begin to produce hormones necessary for the normal course of pregnancy and will try not to let harmful substances out of the environment to the baby.

– Starting from the 20th week of pregnancy, doctors advise expectant mothers to wear a bandage that supports an enlarged abdomen, thus preventing the threat of abortion and the appearance of stretch marks. By the way, with stretch marks on the abdomen and chest can be fought, making the massage light superficial plucking of the skin.

– At about 18 weeks, begin to listen especially carefully to what is happening inside you: usually at this time, the movements of the child become noticeable. If you are waiting for the first child, you will feel its movement in the 20th week.

Remember this number and tell it to your doctor.

– After the 24th week of pregnancy, the activity of the child may cause short-term uterine tensions, resembling contractions. Usually they do not cause discomfort to the future mother, lasting for 1-2 minutes and repeated 10-15 times a day. What is the reason for the appearance of “contractions”?

The uterus begins to prepare for childbirth, learns to shrink and relax. Lie on your side for a while and wait for the tension to pass.

If it gives you discomfort, be sure to tell your doctor about it.

Second trimester of pregnancy: full speed ahead

The main thing – do not consider yourself sick and lead a normal life, just spare yourself a little. If there is an opportunity, live outside the city in the summer, besides, try to spend more time on active rest: move, take a walk in the fresh air (not shopping!), Do gymnastics, exercise for expectant mothers at home or in a special group. Try to avoid noisy companies, smoke-filled or stuffy rooms, and celebrate the holidays with your family.

If you really want to drink a little champagne – drink: the hormones of joy – endorphins – stand out from the pleasure you get in the body. And to avoid problems with digestion, take two tablets of activated carbon before the holiday table.

Do not get carried away with food, eat more fruits and vegetables and, as soon as you get tired, go to bed.

Can I have sex during pregnancy? If it proceeds normally (there is no threat of interruption, the placenta is located normally), then yes. Sex life does not harm neither pregnancy nor the unborn baby.

Moreover, in the second trimester, the discomfort, ailments that often occur at the beginning of a 9-month wait, pass, and spouses can get to know the wonderful moments of love. And one more pleasant moment: now you don’t need to think about contraception and worry about the consequences!
