Welcome to the second trimester! 14 weeks pregnant marks a lot of changes—you might be feeling less nauseated, hungrier, and more energetic. That’s because you’re embarking on what’s known as the “honeymoon phase” of pregnancy. Starting with pregnancy week 14, the second trimester is the time to get some exercise, get some to-do’s done, and have some fun. Enjoy!
How Big Is Baby at 14 Weeks?
At 14 weeks pregnant, baby is as big as a peach, measuring 3.4 inches and weighing in at 1.5 ounces. Baby has almost doubled in weight since last week, and keeps on growing at super speed at week 14.
14 Weeks Pregnant Is How Many Months?
14 weeks pregnant means you’re about three months and one week pregnant. You’re at the beginning of your second trimester.
Now that you’re at 15 weeks pregnant, you’re probably feeling very high energy, and that may mean high libido too. Your partner isn’t feeling nearly as frisky at week 15 pregnancy? That’s normal too. Let’s face it, the thought of baby being so close while you two are, um, doing the deed, can freak him out. Remind your partner that baby has no idea what’s going on—and, as long as your OB hasn’t given you any activity restrictions—sex won’t hurt baby or threaten your pregnancy.
WEEK 16 – 17 -18
- You may have been waiting impatiently until the day you first feel your baby moving inside of you. You will begin to feel your baby’s first movements at around 18 weeks.
- The first day you feel your baby moving is very important. Do mark it on a calendar.
- During this time a lot of other changes are also taking place. Your swelling womb is gradually moving up, from the pelvic cavity towards your abdominal cavity. As this happens, your waist shape begins to change and broaden.
- You may notice you sweat more during this period. This is quite normal. You may also notice an increase in vaginal discharges. While this is normal, if you notice any blood or foul smell in this discharge, contact your doctor immediately.
- Now your baby has begun to hear sounds. This is something you should be very much aware of. Loud sounds can upset your baby. You should take special care not to get into loud arguments, fights or disagreements, especially with your partner. Your baby can hear these sounds, and it doesn’t like harsh and loud noises. You wouldn’t want your baby to hear anything unpleasant would you? Listen to soothing music, and feel free to sing to or talk to your baby. Your baby can hear you, and may even respond by moving inside.
- Your little one’s capabilities are rapidly developing in preparation for birth. We told you before that your baby can now suck well. Sometimes it may take its thumb into its mouth and suck it. It can also now kick, and make a fist with its hands.
