20141020_180405-165x300Congratulations, you are now entering your second trimester. Your baby’s amazing growth and development continues. The intestines which were once housed in your baby’s umbilical cord have now entered the abdomen. Urine is now being produced by your baby and excreted into the amniotic fluid. Developing inside your baby’s extremities and surrounding his or her baby’s head is tissue which will grow to be bone. Miniature ribs may be seen. Your baby is measuring about the size of a plump nectarine. Your baby’s head takes up about half of his or her total length.

Now that your first trimester is complete, it’s time to begin using your OPERATION DUE DATE MOM & BABY TRACKING CHART. With so many new and exciting changes taking place from week to week, it’s important to proactively keep track of the most important ones for the health of you and your baby. Watch your pregnancy evolve from a weekly chronicle in Week 13 to a daily register monitoring your baby’s movements in Week 28. Stay vigilant! Your delivery day will be here before you know it.
