Second trimester

For most women, the second trimester of pregnancy is easier than the first.

During these months, though, it’s just as crucial to keep informed about your pregnancy.

You may have noticed that symptoms like nausea and tiredness have faded.

However, your body is undergoing fresh, more obvious changes. 

Your abdomen will grow in size as the baby grows.

You’ll start to feel your baby move by the end of this trimester!

You may experience the following symptoms as your body changes to accommodate your growing baby:

Body aches include pain in the back, abdominal, groin, or thigh.

Stretch marks are widespread on the abdomen, breasts, thighs, and buttocks.

Skin discoloration around your nipples.

Third trimester

You’ve made it this far! Some of the aches and symptoms you felt in the second trimester will reappear.

Furthermore, many women experience difficulty breathing and realize that they need to use the restroom more frequently. 

This is due to the fact that the baby is growing and putting extra pressure on your organs. 

Don’t worry, your child will be OK, and these problems will go away after you have a child.

You may notice the following new physical changes during the third trimester:

Breathing problems


The ankles, fingers, and cheeks swell. 

(If you notice any sudden or extreme edema, or if you gain a lot of weight quickly, call your doctor straight once.)

This could indicate the presence of preeclampsia.)


Breasts that are soft and supple.

There’s a chance your belly button will protrude.

Sleeping problems

The baby has started to “drop,” or shift lower in your abdomen, which is a good sign.

Contractions can signal either real or false labor.

Finally, at the last stages of pregnancy, your cervix thins and softens as you get closer to your due date . This is a normal, natural mechanism that helps the birth canal open throughout the delivery process. Your doctor will perform a vaginal exam as you approach closer to your due date to assess your development.
