Second Trimester: Everything You Need To Know About The Second Trimester

10.50 MB | 26:20 Min

They call the second trimester of pregnancy "the honeymoon” of pregnancy, but that doesn't mean it's all sunshine and flowers. Your morning sickness may stick around, you may begin to struggle with reflux or hip pain. But you also may feel a surge of energy (even the sexual kind). This would be a great time to take a "Babymoon.” Also, during the second trimester, there are several important prenatal tests, during one of which you might find out if you're having a boy or a girl! Join Bonnie Petrie as she speaks with a Certified Nurse midwife and a second trimester mom-to-be for this exhaustive review of the second trimester.
