The end of the second trimester!
You’ve made it to the end of the second trimester. At this point, you've got a lot on your brain, too, from wondering what the birth is going to be like to trying to find the best paediatrician for baby. Just relax and try not to worry so much.
Also, prepare yourself for peeing - A LOT (even when you don't mean to).
Your baby is now the size of a...
head of lettuce!
At this point, I bet you will be surprised to hear your baby now measures around 14-15 inches in length from head to toe. Her brain is very active now and although her lungs are still not fully developed they would be capable of functioning outside the womb with medical help. You may start to notice your baby has small hiccups now, although they may feel funny they are not uncomfortable or painful for mum or baby.

Leg cramps, backaches, constipation, haemorrhoids, and snissing - peeing when you sneeze (yes, really. You can thank your baby for all the pressure she is putting on your bladder).
